Seven Day Directed Ignatian Retreat
With Kathy Tosney and Lisa Downs
August 11 - 17, 2024
Each group of five individuals at the retreat will have a spiritual director who will suggest two or three Scripture readings per day for prayer. The readings will be particular to each retreatant. Participants are asked to spend about an hour with each passage, entering the story using his or her imagination.
The group will come together twice: on the first day of the retreat and at its conclusion. The retreat includes a daily meeting with a spiritual director to help process one’s prayer and to discern the movement of God’s Spirit in one’s life.
