Radical Hospitality

This day will explore how we might take spiritual direction “out-of-the-box” to be at the service of our wider society.

with Kate Monkhouse

We will consider Ignatian “apostolic spirituality” as a “faith that does justice”. We will look at the welcome we might offer to the “other” in ourselves as we work towards the spiritual inclusion of others. We will discuss how we might take the ministry of spiritual accompaniment to people who might not otherwise be able to access spiritual direction and to those who are serving people at the margins. We will generate ideas for how to share this gift across culture, technology, disability, prejudice and poverty, with some case studies and practical examples from the UK and overseas.

**Please note that the cost is dependent on the venue; we will provide more information once we know if this will go ahead as a half-day online event or full-day event held at St Edmund’s.
