Channelling the Inner Fire Course
Lent 2024 will see the return of our popular 6 week course, Channelling the Inner Fire: An Introduction to Ignatian Spirituality, based on Fr Brendan McManus’s book Channelling the Inner Fire. This is the third time this course has been run, such is its popularity.
The in-person course will commence at 10am on Saturday 17th February and finish at 12pm. It will be delivered here in the Jesuit Centre and facilitated by Brendan McManus SJ (member of the Jesuit team here in Belfast) and Josephine O’Neill (spiritual director and retreat facilitator). The remaining dates are as follows:
All Saturdays 10am -12pm:
2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd March
The course synthesises Ignatian spirituality into 15 concrete points and focuses on the experiential over the theoretical. Over the 6-week course participants discover how God is communicating with them, in a dynamic relationship, that is alive and working in everyday life.
“It’s like a retreat: where you learn the Examen of Consciousness and other skills of prayer and quietness. Each session begins with a guided meditation leading from head-space to heart-space.”
Small group sharing helps people verbalise their experience in a safe listening space and groups help each other to grow and integrate the Ignatian techniques. Some report that it brings awareness of what Ignatius called the ‘inner movements’ especially in making better decisions.
Booking a place is free by clicking the link below but participants are asked to make a donation of £80 (which can be paid on the first day of the course) to defray costs. Please do not let inability to pay the suggested donation deter you from booking a place.
