Ignatian Spirituality

I’ve been participating in an online course on Ignatian Spirituality over the past three weeks. Here are a few of the images that have come from the experience:

Uncle Herman’s Wow!

As I ponder “What has surprised me?”, I think of my husband’s Uncle Herman who is now in hospice care… During our most recent visit he pretty much had just one response to everything he heard, which was “Wow!” If I ever come to a time in life where one word remains, I hope to be like Uncle Herman.IMG_5967This journaling image will also serve to remind me of a fairly recent Uncle Herman story. In the Dementia unit, he was given the task of opening the blinds every morning. No one, however, was allowed in the kitchen. Therein lie his dilemma… there were blinds in the kitchen. As he was opening them, he was caught by an attendant and without hesitation, Uncle Herman yelled out, “Surprise!”… yes, complete with jazz hands.

“The greatest and most important problems of life are all in a certain sense insoluble… They can never be solved, but only outgrown…” ~Carl Gustav Jung

Grateful for the poetry of Joe Grant whose words so beautifully aligned with what was stirring in my soul this morning –https://engagedpresence.wordpress.com/2017/11/10/a-healing-season/
