Please register by Friday, February 11, 2022.
As part of your racial justice journey, join the Ignatian Spirituality Center for a two-part integrative experience and deepen your own resolve in becoming a spirit-led anti-racist.
Session 1 will introduce you to the book The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A Month of Meditations with Ignatius of Loyola by Patrick Saint-Jean, S.J., Psy.D., and how to pray with the weekly reflections. Participants will explore the spiritual work of racial justice through the lens of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Join facilitator Andrea Fontana (Associate Director, Seattle University Center for Jesuit Education) for a conversation circle where she will share key points for your reflective process over the course of the following weeks.
Drawing from your experience with the books’ meditations and journaling prompts, our facilitator will provide additional weekly encouragements to help you integrate the fruits of your reflections.
Want to deepen your experience in community? Be paired up with another participant to serve as a Listening Companion. Check in on one-on-one (phone, email, Zoom, in-person) to hold space for your own learning, integration, and sharing. A listening guideline for generous listening will be provided.
Finally, Session 2 will be moderated by our facilitator to you glean learnings, provide a space for sharing, and encourage continued growth and healing in the work of racial justice for your personal and spiritual life.
