Growth in Prayer & Reflective Living (GPRL)

For whom is the course intended?

The course is intended for those of different denominations and none. No particular ability in prayer is required, only a desire for God.

Course Content

  • Different ways of praying taken from Ignatian, Celtic and other spiritual traditions.
  • Awareness of our different perceptions of God. The use of a journal and the value of self-awareness as aids to reflective living.
  • Prayer experienced through music, art and movement.
  • An introduction to Ignatian discernment, through which a person may come to make choices which celebrate the unique giftedness conferred on them by the Creator.

Method

The method is experience-based and reflective. It includes small group sharing. Also, because of the participatory nature of the course, it is important that there is a commitment to attend regularly.

In addition to the weekly, or monthly, group meetings – depending on location –  participants are offered the opportunity of one-to-one spiritual accompaniment.

Towards the end of the course there is a short retreat.
