Sources

Our sources are the pedagogy of Saint Ingantius, in particular his Spiritual Exercises, as well as diverse currents of psychology and sociology. What they share in common is an emphasis on a state of consciousness that incites us toward True Life and liberates us from all that would, unconsciously, inhibit us. They also seek to help those who are helping others.

Articles in this section


The foundational experience of Ignatius of Loyola

Our process is founded on Ignatius’ experience of discernment at the time of his conversion. He subsequently set this out in the Spiritual Exercises in order that others might have a similar experience.



Karl Rahner

Creating communal Exercises



The contribution of the ISECP team

We are the inheritors of the American/Canadian team that, in the 1990’s, elaborated and transmitted ISECP (Ignatian Spiritual Exercises for the Corporate Person)



Herbert Alphonso

Our vision is based on Herbert Alphonso’s thesis that the goal of the Exercises is to discover the fundamental direction of our existence; the reason that we are here on earth.



Viktor Frankl

In the concentration camp where he was detained, Viktor Frankl observed that the ones who managed to survive were those who were conscious that their life had a meaning.



Carl Jung

During the process of discernment, the manner in which we perceive reality can unconsciously make us consider some criteria more important than others. Jung urges us to be on the lookout for this, for that which is shrouded in the shadows of the unconscious can influence us, without our knowing, in disconcerting and sometimes irrational ways.



Isabel Myers et Katherine Briggs avec le MBTI

In the attempt to create efficient teams during the Second World War, Isabel Myers and Katherine Briggs conceived the MBTI, a psychological type indicator that has become widely used. It is also one of our resources.



Paulo Freire

“No one can educate another person, no one can educate himself; human beings are educated together through interaction in the world.”
Paulo Freire’s conviction is the inspiration behind our proposal that participants make the Exercises together, interacting with one another.



Marshall Rosenberg et la CNV

Non-Violent Communication (NVC), as developed by Marshall Rosenberg, furnished some practical tools for maintaining the predisposition of kindness required in order for private discussions, interaction in small or large groups or in everyday life, to flourish.



Alice Miller

When we encounter others, we are unconsciously at risk of subjecting them to the wounds inflicted on us in our childhood. Alice Miller draws our attention to this toxic process.
