Ignatian Spirituality & Yoga

How might our breath and the practice of yoga bring us more deeply into Ignatian spirituality and closeness to our Creator? We’ll explore this and more through gentle movement, breath, prayer, and poetry. Space is limited. Register.
The Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life
Beginning September 11
In partnership with Ignatius House, STM will offer the 19th annotation format of St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises. Grow in your intimacy with the Lord as you meet weekly with a spiritual director who will guide you as you pray daily with the scripture passages and mediations from the Exercises. Because this is a big undertaking and an 8-9 month commitment, an application process is required. Learn more at IgnatiusHouse.org/19th-annotation.
