- Week One – Learn about the foundation of Ignatius’ approach to discernment. We will define discernment, examine what makes decisions so hard, and talk about the importance of Ignatian indifference and freedom.
- Week Two – We begin to take a deep dive into Ignatius’ Rules for the Discernment of Spirits, his experiential insights into the interior tensions that can become the motivators for making decisions.
- Week Three – We continue exploring the Rules for the Discernment of Spirits, discuss some practical Ignatian methods to making decisions, and consider how we might find confirmation in our choices.
As each week builds upon the content of the previous week participants are encouraged not to miss a class. Each class will be recorded in the event a class must be missed.
Since each class is run live participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and even offer their own scenarios as they relate to Ignatius’ discernment techniques.
