Ignatian mindfulness

new_web_image_200_3_8Thanks to Now You Know Media, Tim’s 12-lecture series on Ignatian mindfulness is now available. This series is based on over a decade of Tim’s courses on Ignatian spirituality at Boston College, Washington Theological Union, and LaSalle University. From the website:

The Spiritual Exercises is the greatest guide for discernment ever written. 500 years after its publication, it remains a vital resource for hundreds of retreat centers, schools, and religious congregations around the world. St. Ignatius’s manual for spiritual growth has given guidance and joy to countless retreatants and learners. You or someone you know has likely drawn closer to God with The Spiritual Exercises.

This 12-lecture course explores the Exercises with fresh eyes. Award-winning author Tim Muldoon delivers lively lectures that speak to the hearts of men and women from all walks of life. Grounded in Ignatian spirituality, it draws on wisdom from remarkable men and women across religious traditions, giving you innovative and practical methods of discernment amidst the bustle of modern life.

In these lectures, you’ll explore lives of mission whose examples will inspire you to lead a life given in service to God and others, giving you greater purpose and love. You will also discover fresh approaches to daily practices of reflection, prayer, and contemplation. Like Ignatius, you will heal past pains, notice God’s ever-present work, make more life-giving choices, and observe the daily movements of your consolations and desolations.

Discernment is not only a practice but also a journey towards self-knowledge. Step back from today’s distractions and see the flame of joy alight in all things.

the-discerning-parentWe are looking for people who are willing to read and comment on our new book on Amazon and social media. Please contact us at muldoont [at] bc.edu if you are willing to read an advance copy of the book. What can you expect? Our reflections on the practice of discernment in the Ignatian tradition, applied to parenting teens.

The book is part meditation and part invitation to reflection on the task of forming our young adults. Our hope is to reach parents and educators of teens, as well as youth ministers and others who minister to young people. We believe that learning and practicing discernment can yield great fruit for ourselves, for our families, and for the young people who will take their cues from us on how to make life choices that are not only life-giving, but also mindful of others in building a good society.
