PSD is an ecumenical experiential course rooted in the Ignatian Spiritual tradition.

The key aim of the course is to support and foster greater integration between our relationship with God and the matter of our everyday life and personhood.

Including opportunities for both personal and small group reflection, the course seeks to do this through a two stage process:

  • in year one, we focus on developing and deepening experience of different ways of praying alongside facilitating growth in self-awareness, personal reflection and reflective living practices
  • in year two, we focus on ways of responding to what is happening in our prayer and reflective practice by developing capacity for spiritual discernment and skills in reflective decision making

The next two year PSD course will begin in September 2019 running over two academic years. We are currently opening a list of those interested in participating in the next course to whom we will send more detailed information in the coming year on the course dates, structure, application process etc. Please contact the office if you would like to be kept updated.

For those interested in the next course, we will be offering a PSD taster evening on Thursday 11th April 2019 from 7:00-9:00pm. More details will be available on our website from September or from St. Bede's office.

In the coming year, as an introductory experience, you may also be interested in the short 7 session Exploring Prayer course offered by St. Bede's - an evening course will be offered in the Autumn of 2018 and an afternoon course will be offered in the Summer of 2019. Details of these courses will be available from July.
