Life is about facing and managing change—career, personal, family, spiritual. This retreat is an opportunity to reflect on your life and your faith, exploring avenues for new opportunities. You will engage practical career transition content, poetry, and prayer which will allow you to begin clarifying vocational needs and goals.

We all need a vision for our gifts—and language to describe our career/life objectives to ourselves and others. LifeSHIFT will include a variety of activities including discussion, personal writing, film, music, reflective solitude, using the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and one to one consultation. Each participant will set goals, develop resources for change while experiencing imaginative ways to know God’s presence on the journey.

St. Ignatius“There are very few people who realize what God would make of them… if they abandoned themselves into his hands, and let themselves be formed by his grace.” – St. Ignatius
