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:


are we listening?

Perhaps last night’s journaling sensed what would come to life at 2am as I watched the night sky from the River House deck.

A shooting, falling star is like “a bright, fragile ‘I am'” … “As our metal eyes wake / to absolute night, / where whispers fly / from the beginning of time, / we cup our ears to the heavens.” ~ We Are Listening by Diane Ackerman

prayers of renewal

A friend recently described one of the images above as a “visual mantra” … a partnering of words that was very pleasing to my soul.

Inspired by prayers written by Rev. Melissa Johnson Bills for the Tenth Triennial Gathering of the Women of the ELCA, it’s my hope that working on the images is preparing me for the “All Anew” theme of the Gathering.

Welcome to my first post created while at the Grunewald Guild!  I gave myself a little time with pre-scheduled posts and older journaling images during June and part of July.  Now I’m back in the saddle and blogging journal images from Weeks 3 and 4 of the Guild’s summer program.
