Become alert to the spiritual dimension in your daily life.
There are spiritual practices that might help us become alert to the spiritual aspects of our daily lives; one especially powerful one is called the Examen.
The Examen was developed by Ignatius of Loyola about 500 years ago. He developed as a way of knowing when we seem to be moving towards God, and when we seem to be moving away from God. The practice involves looking at our recent life (perhaps the most recent day or half day) in considerable detail, and being alert to spiritual clues.
In this episode we look at some of Ignatius’ story and how he came to develop the Examen. We then discuss how we might use the practice today to become more alert to what might be spiritual aspects of our busy days. (Time: 9:60)
