Ignatian spiritual exercises
I am wondering if anyone has done the Ignatian spiritual exercises, and what the experience was like for you. I am wondering because I have done them myself in two parts, at a retreat centre. I did part 1 two years ago, and have just done part 2, so now have in theory completed the spiritual exercises, but I'm feeling somewhat confused. I had a different spiritual guide for part 2, whose approach was very different from the spiritual guide I had in part 1, and I am finding I have no sense of the two parts as an integrated whole. I'm even thinking I'd like to do them again, by myself without a spiritual guide, from a book - and I'm also wondering if anyone has done this and what it was like. I would find it very helpful to hear experiences of others who have done the spiritual exercises.
