Discernment Reimagined

About this Program

One reason that a unique gift of Ignatian spirituality - St. Ignatius' guidelines for the discernment of spirits - has survived the test of time is because it recognizes the importance of the "signs of the times," or the current contexts in which we make life decisions. Our choices are not made in a vacuum. They are influenced by our identities, experiences, communities and the times in which we live. Join presenter Marilyn Nash (Seattle University Campus Minister) and others to reimagine personal decision-making within these various contexts today. Ideal for those familiar with the basics of Ignatian discernment — and open to all!


General Public $20

Young Adults 20’s and 30’s: $10
