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。

Day Retreat: Encountering “The Other” 一天主題避靜:與他者相遇

Facilitator

對象
Anyone interested in the theme 對是次主題有興趣的人士
Content
內容
At the heart of our spiritual journey is the discovery of our longing to be united with “the One” whom we encounter as the mystery of Love. Love is the movement out of “self” to the “other” – and it defines who we are and what both our purpose and destiny is. The love of God and the love of neighbour – the path of Christian salvation – is a life-long journey that always involves seeing, desiring and choosing the “other” beyond the self. Our day of reflection will explore the freedom of love and its demands.
靈修的核心是發現心靈深處的渴望:與祂--這位愛的奧秘--的相遇。愛的動力使我們走出自我,迎向他者;愛讓我們找到自己的身份、生命的終向和意義。基督徒的成聖之路—愛主愛人—更是一個終身旅程,邀請我們超越自我,得以看見、渴望並選擇他者。讓我們在這天的避靜一起反思和探索愛帶來的自由和邀請。

CONTEMPLATION COURSE 2019: CONTEMPLATION MAKES GOOD LEADERS (Full)

This course aims to introduce the practice of inner silence and contemplative prayer, which uses a mantric meditation to empty one’s mind of negative thoughts and distractions. It teaches participants that the rigorous path of contemplation is vital for shaping good leaders. The course’s individual and collective experience is inspired by the stories of key leaders from the Bible, namely, King David and the Apostle Paul. Practicing contemplation encourages one to go beyond the surface of biblical texts to discover the richness of their meaning and relevance for one’s own life story.

The course includes four sessions, spread throughout the year: two sessions at Xavier House, Cheung Chau Island (Friday 8pm-Sunday 3pm) and two sessions in Magis Hall at Wah Yan College Kowloon, Hong Kong (Sunday 1pm-6pm). Participants are encouraged to begin or continue a regular practice of contemplation and to enrol in all four courses. Only participants who complete all four sessions will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the fourth session. It is not possible to select to attend only one or two courses. Attendance presupposes a desire to cultivate a daily practice of contemplation. All course sections will be conducted in English.

Part One: FOCUS ON KING DAVID and the PSALMS

Part One of the course will focus on opening a space of inner silence and emptying one’s mind of negative thoughts. Based on key elements from the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556),contemplation is facilitated with the use of biblical texts, images, symbols, and mantras. Contemplation rooted in the Christian tradition of the prayer of Jesus offers a privileged way to reconnect to one’s own spiritual tradition.

The first part of the course follows the contemplative journey of King David, with his ups and downs in life. The Psalms, which are attributed to King David, will serve not only as a key to participating in the stories of this Biblical leader, but also as means for reconnecting to the collective and individual search for the will of God. That said, contemplation also opens a gate to other wisdom traditions, such as Confucianism, Buddhism, Islam and Daoism, which also have methods that lead the soul to true silence. The method taught in this course focuses on becoming aware of one’s breath and body, as well as on a mantra.

Contemplation can be practiced by everyone. The inputs by the instructor aim to encourage participants toward the rich impact of contemplation and to commit to a daily practice. Contemplation may also be a decisive factor in preventing people going through the crisis of cancer or another serious physical challenge from falling into the trap of despair and frustration. 

Key elements of a successful practice of contemplation:
a) Experience and keep inner silence;
b) Commitment to a daily practice of contemplation;
c) Support from a group of like-minded practitioners;
d) Learn from Spiritual Masters such as Teresa from Avila, Ignatius Loyola, Teresa of the Child Jesus, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Alfred Delp
e) Learn from wisdom texts: poems, Bible, psalms;
f) Write a spiritual journal and practice self-management;
g) Practice Tibetan exercises;
h) Obtain an introduction to fasting;
i) Experience meditative dance.

The instructor: Dr. Stephan Rothlin S.J. isan Instructor of Contemplation and accomplished his formation under the guidance of Fr. Willigis Jaeger O.S.B. and Fr. Jean Dravet S.J.

Part Two: FOCUS ON PAUL, THE APOSTLE and his LETTER TO THE PHILIPPIANS

This course focuses on a central theme in the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola, namely, finding one’s own personal vocation and passion. The daily practice of contemplation frees one naturally from navel gazing and shapes the qualities of genuine moral leaders committed to the common good of society. The second part of the course links the contemplative journey to the pattern of the life of the Apostle Paul. His letters are a strong encouragement to persevere in the contemplative journey and to reach the level of trust Paul had in his companions and successors, such as Titus and Timotheus. The course also highlights how contemplation inspires the core principles of Christian Social Teaching, such as solidarity, subsidiarity and a concern for the disadvantaged.
