Course: Growth in Prayer and Reflective Living

31 October @ 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm


This course aims to help participants develop and deepen their experience of prayer and live more reflectively. It offers the opportunity to explore faith, discover meaning and come to a deeper, more intimate, relationship with God. It provides space to examine hopes and desires and to move towards fullness of life in ourselves, and those around us, in the global community to which we all belong. We are excited to be able to offer this course in person this year.

Who is the course for?

The course is open to those of any denomination and none. No particular experience of prayer is required, only a desire for God. Participants should be prepared to share some of their experience of prayer with others. Because of the participatory nature of the course a commitment to regular attendance is important.

What previous participants have said:

  • The regularity has helped create a focus and a rhythm in an otherwise quite chaotic life. 
  • I found the course very fulfilling
  • New ways to think about God and about prayer
  • God has become more approachable
  • It has helped me see areas I can work with God in my prayer life and
    it has made me more excited about prayer
  • The course has slowed me down, made me take more time with God.

Course Content

Participants are offered opportunity to:

  • Experience different ways of praying taken from Ignatian and other spiritual traditions. These include coming to stillness, silent waiting, praying with scripture, imaginative contemplation and review of the day.
  • Explore aids to prayer and reflection including journaling, artwork, body awareness, music and use of images.
  • Develop and deepen awareness of different perceptions of God and self.
  • Begin to discover a way of making prayerful choices in tune with God’s hopes and desires for the world through an introduction to Ignatian discernment.
