SPIR 468-01A: The Practice of Discernment in Prayer
We will explore how our personal image of God evolves as we discern God's ways of being present to us in prayer and in life.  By both studying and practicing discernment of spirits we can become sensitive to inner movements, understanding where they come from and where they lead us.  The course includes an introduction to the practice of lectio divina applied to our lived experience.
