Edited by Brian Grogan SJ

Available on backorder

Foreword by Arturo Sosa SJ, Superior General of the Society of Jesus

This book is aimed at groups – communities, parishes, teams, students – who wish to grow in communion and make decisions together. It is based on the wisdom and practices of ESDAC, a Christian, Ignatian, international association that puts Ignatian spirituality at the service of groups.

ESDAC offers, in various ways, a journey of discernment inspired by the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius.

This comprehensive guide shares numerous examples and provides a ‘toolbox’ which will help leaders to implement the programme in practice.
