IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY

Ignatian Spirituality: Giving Space to the deep inner spiritual longings

The Spirit in us longs for deeper realization of itself in us. It is a natural urge in all of us human beings. Somehow we are satisfied with basic initial spiritual experiences and growth and get stuck not being aware that there are depths to delve into and to be spirit-filled. We think that spiritual life consists of miracles, devotional practices and living a good moral and ethical live – doing good and avoiding evil. These are just the beginning in one’s spiritual journey.

Ignatian Spirituality takes us beyond the Popular Beliefs about God and us. In this Course we will be dealing with Ignatian Spirituality that paves us a way gradually towards mysticism of Finding God in all things and all things in God.

  • This course helps all who desire a deeper Spiritual level of being.
  • There are many Congregation of Men and Women who follow the Ignatian Spirituality. This course will benefit them immensely to get back to their roots.
  • The resource persons are experts in this field.

MIDLIFE SPIRITUALITY

Spirituality is never static though religiosity can be. It changes continuously as we grow and as we encounter different people and situations and God   in our life. This is more true when we arrive at midlife.

Mid life is the beginning of the second half of our life. At this stage our inner self invites us from breadth to depth of life. Many things that made sense to us now begin to be of less importance. This leads towards deep confusion and we don’t understand what is happening to us. God who was very close and personal to us becomes distant. Spiritual practices which nourished us become tasteless. Friends fall off like dry leaves leaving us with a very few inviting us to deep intimacy with those few. All these happen calling us to say good-bye to many things and persons we treasured. Old hurts which we managed to put a lid on, come up with vengeance. Sexuality comes back more alive at this stage embarrassing us.

The course will deal with all the above issues mentioned that happens at midlife and later. The course will help us to understand and accept and integrate the new happenings. It offers a spirituality that makes deeper sense.

You are welcome for this adventurous journey of your life.

NEURO LINGUISTIC  PROGRAMMING (NLP)

Neuro Linguistic  Programming is an effective method to study how the brain works, to become aware of the processes of thinking, feeling, learning, motivating ourselves, making choices, communicating and interacting with others, and to achieve realistic goals. NLP gives us powerful tools to change ourselves to be what we want. It teaches us the “Know How” of changing our negative thinking, harmful habits, limiting beliefs and unhelpful attitudes. It empowers us to have the right choices that make us successful and excellent in our life and work.

It will help us to improve our relationships, to do our work efficiently, to become confident, to become slim and to be happy wherever we are.

It is a tool to enhance our living in every way, including our spirituality. We can very well deepen our personal relationship with God, increase our passion for the poor, learn to pray better, and to remove the unhealthy religious beliefs and habits which bring fear, anxiety and guilt.

You are welcome to attend and benefit in your life!

COUNSELING COURSE FOR COUNSELORS

(A Certificate Course at Satyodayam – Jesuit Retreat Centre, Secunderabad)

The Emotional Quotient of our students, youth and even elders is quite weak to cope up with life events especially when they are unpleasant. Regularly we read in the news papers about people attempting to commit or committing suicide for very flimsy reasons. Quite often the members in the family/religious community/institutions are incapable or unable to create an atmosphere where one can share his/her pains and struggles. For good number of us, the home/community itself is the problem.

The emotional problems affect the person’s work, relationship, discipline, and the general behaviour causing unrest within self and with others. This is more true of students.

A counsellor is a person who accompanies another in his/her joys and struggles. Each Institution needs people who have a heart for others and who are available to the emotional needs of the others and lead them to healing and growth. Along with the heart, some counselling skills will be a great help; and so this course is handy.

This course is to equip the counsellor. There will be theoretical inputs with practice at every stage to make the skills become the second nature of the counsellor.  During the practice sessions, the participants will counsel one another bringing their real issues: learning by doing. The course is intense.

This course is focused mainly for student counsellors and to anyone who desires to help others (lay or religious/ priests/ seminarians/ sisters…etc.) in their emotional issues. Today our formees come with a lot of emotional baggage and this course will be very helpful to the formators.

In the final analysis all problems can be zeroed down to the problem of incapacity to handle one’s emotions that the unpleasant events bring. So the participants will be helped to go to the root cause of the problems and also to tap the inner hidden strength and potentials of the client so that the client will be able to sort out the issues and deal with them for healing and growth.

Satyodayam (Jesuit Retreat Centre) is conducting this course with the collaboration of the Psychology Department of LOYOLA ACADEMY (Autonomous PG and Degree College, Osmania University), Alwal, Secunderabad. A Certificate will be issued from LOYOLA ACADEMY at the end of the course.

You are welcome!

Venue: Satyodayam (Jesuit Retreat Centre), 12-5-33, Vijaypuri Colony, Secunderabad 500 017, Telengana State.

The Age Limit of the participants: 25 – 60

Maximum Number of Participants: 15

Dates: 19th August – 30th August 2019 (11 full days)

Fees: Indian Rs. 6,600/- including board, lodging and the tuition fees.

Participants: Anyone who is a counsellor or plan to be one is eligible. A person who has done some psychological courses will benefit better but it is not a must.

Admission Policy: First come first served.

ENNEAGRAM AND SPIRITUALITY

The West found the Sufis (a branch of Islam) in Afghanistan using Enneagram as a tool to guide groups or individuals to Psychological and Spiritual Growth. The Western Psychologists and Spiritual Directors of Christian Faith found it a great tool of personal Growth.

Enneagram looks at people belonging to one of nine different types and each type has its own special compulsions and strengths and depending on that each one has a special path towards wholeness. One’s path is not the same as the path of another – “one’s food can be poison for the other”.

In this course the participant will be helped to trace and discover his/her type and also the path to holistic   growth. The course will help you to guide others if you are in a ‘helping mission’. So it is a great help to formators and counsellors and Spiritual Directors.

You are most welcome!

INNER CHILD HEALING WORKSHOP

We were all once an impressionable child – who had to adapt to her surroundings and find a way to fit in.

Ideally we had good enough parents who met most of our needs in a satisfactory way. But even the most well-meaning parents can make mistakes, and leave a child feeling that their self-worth is conditional upon doing and being what was acceptable and expected of them.

Perhaps this resonates with you, and you now realise that you’ve been left with a weakened self-concept, unclear boundaries and a tendency to wear a mask and take care of everyone else’s needs.

Maybe you’ve been feeling that you’re just ‘going through the motions’ and have lost touch with your own identity and needs… and you’re missing out on fun and passion in your life.

For too many of us the parenting and childhood we had was far from good enough, and we can then find our adult life and relationships a constant struggle too.

Early emotional wounds are very pervasive – especially if there was ongoing emotional or physical trauma – and they continue to give us pain, and to bleed into all areas of our lives.

Healing our Inner Child includes healing our negative conditioning, the trauma held in our bodies, releasing the labels we’ve been living with, and reclaiming our voice and vibrant personality that should never have been squashed or silenced.

Our inner child’s emotional wounds came not only from what we got and what happened to us – but also from what we didn’t get or experience.

The healing process starts with reconnecting with our Inner Child, and becoming re-acquainted with her embodied feelings – which may have been buried and hidden away, as a way of coping.

As we help to heal her emotional wounds we start to make peace with the past – which allows more freedom, authenticity and spontaneity in the future.

You may then feel that you want to take the next step (and workshop) of being able to play, create, share and celebrate – and become free and to give and receive the love and joy you deserve!

PSYCHO-SEXUAL INTEGRATION

We are sexual beings whether we are single, married or celibate. Sexuality is part and parcel of our life till the end of our life. We have to live our sexuality without negating or suppressing it. Sexuality is not just ‘sex’ though it includes it.

We have received a lot of negative messages from childhood from our family, culture and religion about sex and they influence our attitude to it and we live a lot of unhealthy fear and guilt. .

Normally we have chosen priesthood, brotherhood or sisterhood but most of us have not chosen celibacy consciously. This reality causes its own problems.

The course will deal with different aspects of sexuality in a scientific way. In the process there will be a lot of sharing which will make us more comfortable with our own sexual reality. The course will also deal with methods of healing our past experiences and ways of dealing with our sexual thoughts, fantasies, urges,  longings and behaviours.  It will also deal with the topics of friendship, celibacy and our religious vows.

You are welcome to attend and benefit to become a healthy and integrated sexual human person.

DIPLOMA IN COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGY

From 2nd July to 28th September, 2019 (3 full months)

The Bishops, the Major Superiors, Superiors of Religious Communities and Rectors of Seminaries have ample people who need serious help in their emotional issues shown in inappropriate behaviours in their day-to-day life and ministries. These Religious Leaders look for someone who can guide and help them in these members’ journey of life. Unfortunately there are very few people who can do this service though they may hold degrees in Psychology or Spirituality.  People who have the aptitude and trained sufficiently, in the area of helping others, is a great need in the Church in India today.

The Formators in general are at a loss to help the formees who come with a lot of emotional baggage.

The Government of India is going to demand all our Educational Institutions to have trained Student Counsellors to be at the service of the students.

Keeping all these in mind the Jesuit Centre at Secunderabad is coming forward to meet these needs by forming and training the personnel. We have chalked out a three-month course of Counselling Psychology, which we are announcing to you. The course is not meant for those who seek healing but for those who will be facilitating the healing process in others.  This course prepares resource persons.

In this course we give some basic knowledge in Psychology focusing on the inner emotional dynamics of human persons. Then we move into dealing with the emotional issues of the participants so that the course is to help others by experiencing being helped themselves. Then we lead the participants into systematic formation and skills learning step by step.

The Major Superiors in general look forward to other Congregations to help their own people rather than training their own personnel who can be of great help to the members of the Congregation and to others. We place before you this Course in Counselling Psychology to make use of it.

You are welcome to send your members to benefit by this course and help others.

The dates: 2nd July – 28th September, 2019 (90 full days). Arrival on 1st of July by 8.00pm

Venue: Satyodayam, Jesuit Retreat Centre, Tarnaka, Secunderabad 17.

Facilities: Single rooms with bathroom attached.
