The aim of the 5 workshops is to discover and explore spiritual sources that can help in daily life.
It will focus on aspects of personal, professional and spiritual development and it will include practical exercises.
Some tools from (not only) Jesuit spirituality will be proposed in order to improve life and to be a better leader of oneself and of other people.
1st WORKSHOP: Following Bible leaders, discovering own personal profile.
Thursday, 23.03.2023 from 18:30 till 21:30
The workshop will focus on several strong personalities from the Bible, serving as archetypes.
Male characters: Abraham (the Pilgrim), Jacob (the Father), Moses (the Leader), Solomon (the Lover), Peter (the Rock) and Paul (the Missionary).
Female characters: Deborah (the Judge), Esther (the Queen), Eve (the Mother), Judith (the Fighter), Mary Magdalene (the Passionate), and Martha and Mary (the Hostess and the Artist).
Reflecting on these characters should help us to identify our unique profile, given our life history, our sensibilities, our strong points and our weaknesses – to live creatively and to get in touch with the sources of our strength.
There will be time for a biblical meditation inspired by chosen biblical characters.
