Directed Retreats

About

A spiritual director is available upon request to direct your retreat or to provide spiritual companioning, if you choose to take advantage of this service. Centering Space spiritual directors come from many walks of life and faith traditions. We can assist you in selecting a director who will meet your personal needs.

During a Directed Retreat you usually meet individually with a director for 45 – 60 minutes on each full day to share your experience of prayer and whatever is going on between you and God throughout the day. You may have encountered and responded to God in your formal prayer time, on a walk, during a meal, etc. Suggestions for ongoing prayer are often offered.

If you choose to spend a full week on retreat, you can also be directed in the 8-Day Directed Ignatius Retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius retreat is a more structured retreat involving 3-5 set prayer or meditation periods throughout the day and specific readings from the Spiritual Exercises. These powerful exercises can have a dramatic effect in terms of deepening your relationship with God, opening your heart to how you can change aspects of your life, or helping you to see all of life with new eyes.

A spiritual director will provide you with all of the resources you need to follow through on the Spiritual Exercises.
