Please note that prior attendance of Hearts on Fire is a pre-requisite for this training.

Captivated by the Spirituality of St Ignatius? Longing to share this gift with others? A good listener? You may have the gift (charism) to be a prayer guide accompanying others on retreats in daily life.

The Prayer Guide Training is also the first step in the process of training to be a Spiritual Director. The emphasis is on training for one to one spiritual accompaniment on retreats in daily life. The course includes both theory and practice of basic listening skills and listening skills specific to spiritual accompaniment (including basic discernment of Spirits and listening for a person’s image of God)
