Module Description

It all began with a wounded soldier daydreaming on his sickbed. In time he was to found the Jesuit Order with the wish that his companions would become contemplatives in action. St Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) insisted that the Divine is actively at work in our world, which is ‘charged with the grandeur of God’ (Gerard Manley Hopkins, SJ). The presence of the Absolute calls for a response, for reflection and discernment, as we begin to interpret our deep desires and integrate heart and head, in order to be free at last. In this course, we will explore the essentials of Ignatian spirituality. This reading will be enriched by insights from the great Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung (1875-1961) who gave a series of public lectures on the Exercises in 1939-40. The format of the lectures will include power-point presentations, group discussion, journalling, contemplative practices, and existential exercises.
