Spiritual Exercises
of St. Ignatius

30-Week Contemplative Retreat

The nuanced dynamic of this 30-week contemplative retreat is integrating the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola with the inspiration of Jesuit priest-scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard’s evolutionary perspectives invite a contemporary focus on our cooperation with God’s intention and desire for our lives and for the world in these modern times.

The journey of these weeks will interweave the traditional Exercises and present-day insights of creation’s evolving story and the universal Body of Christ.
