New Book: Grace upon Grace: Savouring the Spiritual Exercises through the Arts by Marlene Marburg Appropriate following our recent Open Day in Auckland which offered a similar theme.
The book has been in progress for 6 years and offers a different look at doing the Spiritual Exercises. This version is inclusive and so it is appropriate for anyone who has an interest in growing their relationship with divine Mystery. A glossary and an 8-day retreat is included. I hope that you will think about circulating the attached flyer to your members. The book can be ordered directly through the Author firstname.lastname@example.org or through Morningstar publishing. https://morningstarpublishing.net.au/product/grace-upon-grace/
Grace upon Grace: Savouring the Spiritual Exercises through the Arts is a contemporary, gender-inclusive retreat of the full Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius. The 30-week retreat in daily life has been developed for both retreatant and retreat-giver (spiritual director) as a fresh and creative adaptation of the original Spiritual Exercises, and for those who recognise that poetry, art, movement and music gently hold the sacred Mystery in a way that cannot otherwise be expressed. Grace upon Grace also offers an eight-day Ignatian retreat. The book uniquely focuses on the arts especially poetry which is included in all sections of the book.
The spiritual directors and their retreatants who have used this text in its developmental stages, have found themselves writing their own poetry as prayer.
