This day will provide an opportunity to reflect upon, and share something of, our experience of conversation with bereaved people; how this in turn makes us feel; and to look at some “sketch maps” of the bewildering terrain.A day for those who accompany others either formally, in spiritual guidance, counselling and retreat giving, or informally. The day would also be suitable for those who visit the elderly, Eucharistic Ministers etc.
How to help people cope with caring for people with mental illness, dementia etc. This day is suitable for all who accompany others either formally or informally.
A day led by psychiatrist, Dr. Gill Yellowlees who is an elder of the Church of
Scotland who also has much experience with dealing with people who are affected
by mental problems.
A day of creativity using art for self-expression and as a means of prayer. No artistic experience necessary.
We offer opportunity for supervision at the Centre. This can be received
on a one to one basis or as part of a small group.
We can also put accompaniers in touch with supervisers located elsewhere in Scotland.
The ISC relies on Associates who have been trained in the art
of Ignatian Spirituality and have found an aptitude for helping others.
Many of our Associates have been trained here in Glasgow having done our courses in Spiritual Guidance and having had the experience of the Spiritual Exercises themselves. Some have been trained by the Epiphany group or have gone further afield.
We have Associates who specialise in giving one-to-one Spiritual guidance, while others help us leading groups in prayer or giving weeks of guided prayer in and outwith the Centre.
All our Associates are people who are aware of God's great love for them, and wish to reach out to others to help them know God better and discern the movements of spirits in daily life.
We are always looking for new Associates, people who are open to training in living and working in the Ignatian way.
There are currently two support groups provided by the ISC.
One group is for people who are giving the full Spiritual Exercises in daily life (19th Annotation Retreat)
The other is group supervision with an exploration of topics relevant to spiritual accompaniment.
