First Spiritual Exercises - Finding Love in Darkness and Light

Directed and Facilitated by JRC staff and retreat directors

In his radically innovative book, “The First Spiritual Exercises”, Australian Jesuit retreat director Michael Hansen, SJ, presents four different retreats on inner peace. These retreats combine spiritual conversation and spiritual exercises akin to the form of the spiritual exercises thought to be given by Ignatius and the early Jesuits to anyone of good will. This mercy of God, healing and true freedom are great mysteries. To Ignatius, they were part of the mystery of divine love, so he placed surrender to God’s tender love at the hearts of this retreat “Inner Peace in Darkness and Light.” We are encouraged to ask for the grace we most need now.

Each four-week retreat in daily life involves a commitment to 40-50 minutes a day of structured prayer from Monday to Thursday and a weekend exercise. Retreatants meet weekly (via Zoom on Saturday morning from 10:00 – 11:30 am) during the retreat to receive guidance from the retreat leaders and to share their experience in small group spiritual conversation with facilitators. Come and experience this journey into a more fruitful service!
