Coping with Loss and Bereavement
4 November 2017; 10.30am-4.30pm
Ken Russell

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.

Associates - Helpers of the ISC

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.

email Enquire about being an associate.
