The emphasis is on retreat direction, though the programme also prepares for the more general ministry of spiritual direction.  As well as acquiring skills, the course seeks to discern and develop the charism for this ministry.  The course is also suitable for those who are working (or preparing to work) in the area of discernment and formation, whether lay, clergy or religious.

The course comprises of:

Preparation for retreat giving – include the dynamics of the exercises, the principles of discernment, and some fundamental themes of spiritual theology relevant to this ministry.

Retreat-giving – supervised practice of retreat-giving, including one six day and one eight day residential individually guided retreat at St Beuno's (participation in this part of the programme will depend on the suitability and skills of the individual course members and St Beuno's staff reserve the right of final decision as to whether course members participate in this element of the programme).

Study of the Spiritual Exercises – this includes practical application of the exercises in everyday life, and involves study and practical work to help understand the dynamic of spiritual growth and development.

Throughout the course there will be personal supervision, observed practice, and assessment of your progress and needs.  Participants need to have made the full Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius and have some understanding of Ignatian Spirituality.  An excellent fluency in English and a good understanding of British culture are requirements for this programme.
