Everyone wants to believe they have some measure of influence over the events that come their way in life. Now one welcomes a chaotic surprise, but they happen now more than ever. For all the external resources we can amass to make us think we are safe and protected from harm in this world, none are as powerful, reliable and truly effective as trusting our own guidance, knowing how to make a clear decision and follow through with it, and being able to confront the fears and illusions in our life.
During this presentation, we will apply the wisdom and teachings of four great mystics ? Ignatius Loyola, Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross and Saint Benedict ? all of whom developed their own methods of spiritual direction for their students precisely because they realized that external chaos in a person’s life generate immense inner turmoil and that every individual required guidance through the challenging passages in life. Every human being benefits, for example, from instructions on how to make clear decisions. A person must learn how to thread together the input from one’s mind, heart and soul in order to have “deep clarity.” ?It is important to know the difference between quiet and silence, and which one actually nurtures our inner being. And how do we attain that inner state?? Knowledge of the soul has always required instruction. It does not come through books alone, if at all.
