In the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius Loyola gave instructions to give his Exercises in two ways: the Full Spiritual Exercises (30 days or 30 weeks) and the First Spiritual Exercises. In his radically innovative book The First Spiritual Exercises, renowned Jesuit retreat director Michael Hansen, SJ, presents the First Spiritual Exercises in the form of retreats on inner peace accessible to anyone without getting away from ordinary life or meeting daily with a spiritual director. This four-week retreat (plus a closing session) involves daily prayer and spiritual exercises, and weekly meetings for sacred listening, spiritual conversation, and discernment.
