Please Note: Hearts on Fire is a pre-requisite for the Prayer Guide Training

If you want to learn more about Ignatian Spirituality this is the best place to begin. It offers an engaging introduction over the course of six sessions of two hours each. We open up the Ignatian approach to Christian Spirituality which is about Finding God in All Things and becoming ever-more aware of God in the midst of our often very full daily lives. It also provides an introduction to and some experience of some of the basic Ignatian ways of praying including Imaginative Gospel Contemplation and the Examen of Consciousness. The Institute with the help of volunteers trained by us is offering this course in various parts of the country. Please make contact directly with the co-ordinator of the Hearts on Fire course which suits you best. People of all Christian denominations are welcome at all Hearts on Fire courses.
