The Diploma in Ignatian Spirituality is for persons interested in developing the ministry of spiritual direction with an emphasis on the apostolate of the Spiritual Exercises. These include religious and lay people, drawn from North America and internationally -- as well as those who are in training to assume positions of leadership in diverse Christian traditions and are seeking practical training in discernment, facilitation of groups, and ways of reading contemporary culture.
This diploma addresses the needs of those who are becoming more involved in the apostolate of the Spiritual Exercises. This course of studies provides ongoing formation for spiritual directors, with an emphasis on Ignatian spirituality, and on the Spiritual Exercises in a closed 30 day retreat or in an adapted setting such as the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life.
