This is a 7-day Directed Ignatian retreat with Directors, Kathy Tosney and Fr. Jim Bowler, SJ
Each group of five individuals has a spiritual director who suggests two or three Scripture readings each day for prayer which are particular to each retreatant. Each participant is asked to spend about an hour with each passage, entering the story using his or her imagination. The group gathers together twice, on the first day of the retreat and at its conclusion. The retreat includes a daily meeting with a spiritual director to help process one's prayer and to discern the movement of God's Spirit in one's life.
The cost of this retreat is $750.
Kathy Tosney is part of the Eldering Retreat team at St Francis Retreat Center, a Spiritual Director, and directs Ignatian retreats.
James Bowler, SJ for over thirty years has been involved in ministries of spiritual direction, training thereof, and directed retreats and workshops promoting Ignatian spirituality.
