How can you deepen you life of prayer in new ways?

We all desire to grow closer to God. Now, you can revitalize your faith with this unique retreat. If you’re a woman whose seeks new inspiration for your prayer life, look no further.

In this retreat, you will find guidance in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola—a trusted pathway to spiritual renewal for hundreds of years. Featuring Lyn Holley Doucet—author, counselor, and spiritual director—this series was crafted with women in mind. She brings a strong female presence, using gentleness, humor, and a gift for storytelling that will lead you into deeply healing practices of prayer. While she also employs poetry, prayers, stories, guided meditations, and other reflections, Doucet remains firmly rooted in the strong foundation of the Ignatian spiritual tradition. 

You will explore the Ignatian teaching on disordered attachments, which will help you better understand the kinds of compulsions, anxieties, and restlessness that can so often bog you down. You will also have healing experiences with Christ, allowing Him to be fully present and draw you into His passionate friendship. Ultimately, you will find redeemed life with Jesus: loving and serving Him in freedom and joy.

Draw closer to Jesus as you learn how to receive the gifts of abundant new life and love He can offer to your thirsty spirit.
