Jesuit and Ignatian Spirituality Australia is a national community of women and men formed in Ignatian Spirituality working in a variety of geographic locations and online.
We give the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius Loyola and accompany individuals and groups through spiritual conversation and spiritual direction. We offer retreats, ministry supervision and Ignatian formation for leadership and mission. Our facilities are available for day programs, residential retreats and hospitality.
The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola are the bedrock of Ignatian Spirituality
The origin of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius Loyola are found in Ignatius’ own personal experience of conversion and prayer. He kept a journal where he recorded his particular spiritual experiences that he felt could be of benefit to others.
Through a process of reflection, Ignatius produced a manual of considerations, meditations, contemplations and notes to help others advance their spiritual life and deepen their relationship with God. Within a short period of time the Spiritual Exercises became renown for their transformative effect on those who received them.
The Spiritual Exercises invite us to contemplate the life and mission of Jesus and deepen this experience through accompanying Him in his life, pain and resurrected joy – as we experience in our own lives.
Contact us to find out how the Spiritual Exercises can be adapted for you or your group.
