Framed by the Ignatian charisms of care of the whole person and people for and with others, the Program for Ignatian Mindfulness unites the concepts of mindfulness and discernment. Saint Ignatius calls us to surrender to more fully receive love and grace. The three pillars of the program are:
Pause: Creating a space without judgements or attachments to appreciate the whole person
Presence: Bringing attention to the moment by noticing one’s thoughts and surroundings
Peace: Imagining empathy, and compassion for self and others through contemplation
The Program for Ignatian Mindfulness aims to facilitate the integration of the mind, body, breath and spirit through conversation, practice and contemplation.
