Ignatian Examen Guided Meditation - Episode No. 15

Dr. Melanie Dobson leads a practice of Ignatian Examen. This prayer was developed by Ignatius of Loyola for his fellow monks, the Society of Friends, in the mid-1500s. Ignatius thought that by the self-examination of times of desolation and consolation in a person’s life, they could see more clearly the presence of God at work.  This particular practice is adapted from Daniel Wolpert in his book, Creating a Life with God.
