Spiritual Exercises 神操

What Are the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises? 

The “Spiritual Exercises” is an intensive, individually directed retreat (extending over 8 months) offered by the Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate in the Archdiocese of Vancouver.  It was composed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (the “Jesuits’).

This Retreat focuses on facilitating one’s actual Experience of God and a practicum of discernment involving finding the Lord in the deepest areas of one’s soul.  By means of praying through one’s own life and the life of Christ, one experiences God’s presence, healing, and call to salvation and vocation, including any major life decisions.
