Get a spiritual work-out with this nine-month intensive retreat

Do you wonder how the Spirit is moving in your everyday life or how you’re being invited to grow in your relationship with God and others? What interior fires are you harnessing for the good of the world? Give yourself the gift of the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life (S.E.E.L.), a retreat taking place over the course of nine months in the very heart of your unique journey, encompassing all your joys, sorrows and holy desires for something “more” in the process. St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, offered the Spiritual Exercises to help seekers dispose their hearts to discover the mysterious meanderings of God in their lives. The Spiritual Exercises will lead you to healthful discernment of life choices and purposeful action born out of your heart’s holiest desires. S.E.E.L. includes praying for an hour each day to deepen your habit of gratitude, training your heart and mind to be still, learning the art of discernment, considering daily readings designed specifically for S.E.E.L., meditating with Scripture, praying the daily Examen of Consciousness and noticing patterns of consolation and desolation along the way, meeting once a month with your spiritual director who listens with you for the movements of God’s Holy Spirit in your life, and participating with the group gathering once a month for ongoing reflection. Do you want to embark on this magnificent journey? Come see what God can do with even the tiniest opening in your heart!

The group will meet at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) nine Saturdays in 2017 and 2018: Sept. 9, Oct. 7, Nov. 4, Dec. 9, Jan. 13, Feb. 17, March 17, April 14 and May 5.

Facilitators Betty Daugherty, FSPA; Marj English, OSF; Ann Jackson, PBVM; Laura Weber; & Lucille Winnike, FSPA, are all certified spiritual directors on staff at Prairiewoods.

The cost of this nine-month retreat is $450 (payable in Sept. 2017 or in monthly installments of $50) plus the cost of monthly spiritual direction sessions paid separately (usually $45 per hour). A non-refundable deposit of $25 is required at registration. For more information or to request an application, contact Prairiewoods at 319-395-6700.
