So much of our suffering arises from the disconnect between how we recall the events of our lives and how they actually occurred. St. Ignatius of Loyola gave us a solution to this dilemma over 500 years ago. The spiritual exercise known as The Examen presents us with an opportunity to invite God into our recollections and seek out his presence in the details of our lives.Examining the Examen presents simple, step-by-step explanations of how to approach this transformative practice and encourages a playful, experimental approach to integrating this into our lives. Whether we review the last few hours or several decades of our lives, The Examen breeds a sense of peace, gratitude, and union with God. Let your journey begin. You can purchase the book here.
