Ignatian Prayer Adventure – An Online Retreat

5 Comments

So many of us, myself included, spend our lives meeting its day-to-day challenges the best we can.  Circumstances don’t always allow for a thoughtful consideration of how we can make our lives more meaningful and fulfilling.  Sometimes a crisis precipitates a change, sometimes we just can’t keep pushing ourselves to continue doing the same job we hate or stay in a loveless marriage.  We hit the wall, so to speak.

I’ve felt for a while that the best way to get to the other side of my own knotty issues would be through meditation or some sort of contemplative practice.  That by stilling my worried mind a path would emerge.  Lately, all my spiritual wanderings keep bringing me back to St. Ignatius.  And so, I surrender.  I’m saying yes to St. Ignatius by taking part in the Ignatian Prayer Adventure, an on-line retreat provided by Ignatian Spirituality.com.  If you would like to join me you can do so here.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.

  1. I was thinking about doing an on-line Ignatian Retreat for Advent and Christmas season and this is the final push to get me to do it 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on Teilhard de Chardin and commented:
    This has been on my mind and this blogpost was the final call for me to say yes. The timing is great for the Advent and Christmas Seasons.

  3. What a great way to give meaning back to Christmas. I am going to follow your example and will be joining you in the retreat at that time. Have you done one before?

  4. I have done traditional Ignatian retreats but have never done an on-line retreat. I am looking forward to it as I am hoping that it will help me mentally and spiritually get away from some of the business of the Holidays. Thank you again for the inspiration!
