依納爵靈修培育

依納爵靈修基礎培育系列

對象及要求 本系列期望參加者有默觀祈禱經驗,參加者需須於三年內參加過三天祈禱工作坊或四日三夜以上的依納爵式指導避靜。在課程期間亦需每天抽出30分鐘作個人祈禱,撰寫靈修日記及閱讀『依納爵這個人』一書。

內容

一、 依納爵靈修的要素:感覺與意識,留意與省察
在靈修中感覺有奇妙的作用,兩者關係密切。我們需要發現並命名自己不同的感覺;留意各種情緒的起伏及意識的動態,作為靈修的原始材料及了解自己的門檻。這樣,我們更能與具有人性的主耶穌溝通和分享自己的生命,進而逐漸體會主如何活在我的生命中。在日常生活中省察、祈禱、與主一起回顧、對話、前瞻是必須的;使祂的生命,愈加滲透我內。

二、依納爵靈修的特色:歷史是重要,個人的故事是關鍵!
感覺與意識其實代表了人性的基本經驗,這次學習會從這角度去回顧自己的救恩史,尤其是生命中的重要事件及內在經驗,繼而留意及了解一己運作中的天主形像及自我形像。

三、依納爵靈修的進路﹕不斷的操練去回顧及評估
回顧救恩史反映依納爵重視歷史和時間的幅度,每個人都是在特定的時空中去發現及確定天主的旨意,然後努力實行。這過程需要某些條件及素質,例如:開放、彈性、提問、願意改變、辨識錯誤等等,所以這次學習會從意識的操作及省察,整體的裝備我們自己,去建立一個穩妥的認知過程。

四、依納爵靈修的核心﹕開放的看待真我的需求與渴望
聖依納爵從他自己的皈依過程中體驗到如何面對自己最真實的需求和渴望。他用慷慨的心懷回應主的召叫,一方面承認自己的偏離與罪過、痛苦和軟弱,放下虛假面具。另一方面,積極留意內心對幫助人靈、聖化自己及他人的動力與渴望,甘心情願的跟隨基督。我們也從他的經驗中慢慢認清自己偏離、面具及真實的渴望。

五、依納爵靈修的精華﹕分辨
我們都會問一些識別天主旨意的課題﹕「天主喜歡我這樣做嗎?」「在我個人的具體情況下,怎樣愈顯主榮?」從提問到領悟,由了解到判斷,是依納爵個人對分辨天主旨意的心得。此外,在日常生活中,善神與惡神在自己身上也有推動,我們學習分辨不同神類的的特徵及影響,進而拒絕惡神,接納善神,活出基督。

依納爵靈修主題式避靜

Eight-day Theme Retreat: "Do Not Let Your Hearts be Troubled"

Facilitator

Fr. Peter McIsaac, SJ
Participant Participants who have joined prayer workshop or have experience of individual guided retreat for three days or above in Ignatian style.
Content We live in a world of turbulence and uncertainty. We face tensions and conflicts in our society, in our work, and often even in our homes, and at times the stress makes us tired and distracted. The burdens we carry throughout the day can also make us troubled and fearful in our hearts. The gift Jesus offers his disciples after the Resurrection is the gift of peace: A peace we discover in the depths of our hearts where God dwells. We need times of silence and solitude to find the centre of our life in God; to contemplate and discern the "seasons" of the heart that can be rooted in our trust in God's presence and mercy. We enter this retreat to rest in this peace of God that is Jesus' gift to us as disciples.
Medium of instruction English, may choose English or Cantonese for spiritual direction
Date October 25, 2018 (Thurs) – November 2, 2018 (Fri)
Time From dinner on first day till lunch (included) on last day
Venue Xavier House, Cheung Chau
Fee (HK$) & Application $5,200

 

其他課程/工作坊

1) Course: Contemplation and Leadership (Full)

Instructor

Dr. Stephan Rothlin S.J. is a licensed Instructor of Contemplation who accomplished his formation under the guidance of the German Zen Master Fr. Willigis Jaeger O.S.B.
Content

The course aims to open a space of inner silence and emptying one's mind from negative thoughts, and to offer the key focus of the Spiritual Exercises by Ignatius Loyola on finding its own personal vocation and passion. The course highlights how Contemplation inspires the key attitudes of Christian Social Teaching of solidarity, subsidiarity and the concern for the disadvantaged.

The course includes four sessions throughout the year: two sessions at Xavier House, Cheung Chau Island (Friday 8pm-Saturday 3pm) and two sessions at Magis Hall of the Wah Yan College Kowloon, Hong Kong (Sunday 1pm-6pm). Participants are required to enrol in all the four courses. It is not possible to select only one or two courses. Participants need to be committed for a daily practice of Contemplation. The course is conducted in English.

Based on key elements of the Spiritual Exercises as developed by Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556) Contemplation is done with biblical texts, images and symbols as well as with mantras. The course explains how Contemplation has been developed in the Christian tradition of the Prayer of Jesus and allows to deepen the understanding of one's own spiritual tradition. However, Contemplation also opens a gate to other wisdom traditions such as Confuciansim, Buddhism, Islam, Daoism and Confucianism which lead the soul to true silence. The method focuses on the awareness of the breathing and the body as well as on a mantra. Contemplation can be practiced by everyone. The inputs by the instructor aim to encourage the participants to realize the rich impact of Contemplation and inspire to a serious daily practice. Contemplation may become a decisive factor which prevents people who going through the crisis of cancer and other serious physical challenges from falling into the trap of despair and frustration. 

Key elements of a successful practice on Contemplation are:

  1. Experiencing and keeping inner silence;
  2. Commitment to a daily practice of Contemplation;
  3. Support by a group of likeminded practitioners;
  4. Learning from Spiritual Masters such as Teresa from Avila, Ignatius Loyola,
  5. Teresa from the Child Jesus, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Alfred Delp
  6. Learning from wisdom texts: poems; bible; psalms;
  7. Writing a spiritual Journal and self-management;
