Spiritual Directors' On-going Education

~ Music & Movement - Unlocking the Soul ~

A mini retreat and a new approach


Among other things, as spiritual directors, we try to help our directees know God's love for them and recognize the Holy Spirit's working in their lives.  Providing a unique prayer experience can often open our directees to explore an issue more deeply or hear God speaking more clearly.  To best learn about the profound effect of music and movement in prayer, we will first experience it.  We will have our own mini retreat, including opportunities for journaling, personal sharing and then discussion of how what we have experienced could be used with our directees.  Music and movement prayer actually helps us access a different part of our brain where we can be more present to the moment and free of distraction, while at the same time enabling a deep encounter with God. Basic everyday movements will be taught which can be done by anyone, regardless of experience or physical limitation. 


$40 cost (includes lunch), payable at registration.  To register, call 248-644-4311, ext 10.

Attendance limited to 32 people, spiritual directors only. 


Manresa Jesuit Retreat House is located at 1390 Quarton Rd., Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304.
