A New Setting of Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises

The Spiritual Exercises were written by Ignatius Loyola during the sixteenth century during his traumatic recovery from war-wounds, a wild life of family trauma and personal partying.  Through VITALITY’s new setting, we have modernized Ignatius’ prompts and attempted to create invitations that welcome people of all faiths and no faith, of high school students through grandparents, of people who actively meditate/reflect and people who are just beginning.  This 175 page book can be used to gently lead yourself or a small group through this modernized, diverse life-experience, invitation-based setting of the Spiritual Exercises . . . to more readily discover the goodness of life right before our eyes . . . a goodness we so often miss in our fast-paced culture.  Come find your way!
