Key Buzz words, contemplative prayer, experiential Christianity, relational Christianity are key words in understanding spiritual formation.
The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (composed from 1522–1524) are a set of Christian meditations, prayers and mental exercises, divided into four thematic 'weeks' of variable length, designed to be carried out over a period of 28 to 30 days. They were composed with the intention of helping the retreatant to discern Jesus in his life, leading him to a personal commitment to follow him. Though the underlying spiritual outlook is Catholic, the exercises can also be undertaken by non-Catholics. The 'Spiritual Exercises' booklet was formally approved in 1548 by Paul III.
The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius form the cornerstone of Ignatian Spirituality—a way of understanding and living the human relationship with God in the world exemplified in the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Although originally designed to take place in the setting of a secluded retreat, during which those undergoing the exercises would be focused on nothing other than the Exercises, in his introductory notes, Ignatius provides a model for completing the Exercises over a longer period without the need of seclusion. The Exercises were designed to be carried out while under the direction of a spiritual director. The Spiritual Exercises were never meant only for the vowed religious. Ignatius of Loyola gave the Exercises for 15 years before he was ordained, and years before the Society of Jesus was even founded. After the Society was formed, the Exercises became the central component of the Jesuit novitiate training program, and they usually take place during the first year of a two year novitiate. Ignatius considered the examen, or spiritual self-review, to be the most important way to continue to live out the experience of the Exercises after their completion.
We will be exposing Spiritual Formation, using the Book "Relational Christianity" author Steve Meeks.

The Jesuit School of Theology’s mission statement highlights the importance of integral formation: “The Jesuit School of Theology achieves its mission through the academic, pastoral and personal formation of Jesuits and other candidates for ministry, ordained and lay, in the Roman Catholic Church.” Scholarship, teaching, and research are all understood as a form of ministry and should have, depending upon the program and the interest of the student, a dimension of formation.
The Jesuit School of Theology spiritual formation programs serve personal and ministerial development through prayer days, retreats, faith sharing groups, spiritual direction, and liturgical prayer.
It was during her junior year at Virginia Tech, that Richmond, VA native, Dr. Thea Green, explored her interest in psychology and decided to change her major. Her passions for addressing the needs of women and people of color led her to pursue additional studies in Women’s Studies and Black Studies. After realizing that she had a passion for psychology and helping others, and after receiving insight and guidance from Tech’s Psychology department, she decided to pursue a Masters in Counseling Education degree at Michigan State University.
While pursuing her Master’s degree, Dr. Green worked at a local treatment facility that provided individual, group, family, and intensive outpatient care to individuals with mental illnesses and substance abuse/chemical dependency issues. Again, Dr. Green decided that she wanted to further her education to ensure that she would become as highly skilled and proficient as possible in the mental health field to provide exceptional services to those who sought her counsel. She chose to pursue a Pastoral Counseling PhD from Loyola University Maryland.
On November 8, 2012, Dr. Thea Green successfully defending her dissertation and went on to graduate from Loyola University in May 2013. She recently opened her own private practice in Ashland, Virginia, Iasis Counseling and Consulting Services, LLC where she provides numerous services including but not limited to: individual and group therapy, relationship counseling, substance abuse/chemical dependency counseling, behavior counseling, spiritual counseling, counseling related to cultural and gender issues and clinical supervision.

Albert William Vogt III was born in Winfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, on January 28, 1980. He lived there until the age of ten when his family moved to Florida. Despite being transplanted, he continued to root for Chicago sports team and loved returning to the land of his birth whenever possible. He also grew to love history, mostly because of his father, who would feed his head of tales of Napoleon and the Grand Armee. It was that love of history that led him to pursue a PhD in American History at Loyola University in Chicago.
While at Loyola, Albert concentrated on cultural and social history. He wrote his dissertation, titled "The Costumed Catholic: Catholics, Whiteness, and the Movies, 1928-1973," which focuses on how Catholics have been portrayed on American film throughout much of the twentieth century. It was enough to earn him his PhD, which was officially conferred in August of 2013.
After Loyola, Albert returned to Florida where he teaches at the University of South Florida - St. Petersburg in the history department, and online for St. Leo University. He also has a novel coming out through Tate Publishing titledBob the Time Traveler. He also has a history consulting firm that he runs with his business partner, Jacob K. Friefeld, called Of Historical Interest.
