The first session, Weeks 1-4, offers you the foundational exercises of prayerfully reflecting on the Sacred Story Affirmations. These "affirmations" are thumbnail sketches of much of the wisdom of the spiritual discernment advice from St. Ignatius in his Spiritual Exercises. They have been put in short affirmative statements to help you begin the process of "listening spiritually" to your life. Session one also offers you an overview of the life and conversion process of St. Ignatius and affords you the same opportunity to begin the process of starting some "spiritual archelogy" on your own life history. Begin to listen spiritually to your life story in session one. Please feel free to watch the video before, during or after your first session. If you are distracted from your lessons by watching the video, then learn to watch the video only after you complete the session.
