The examen or examination of consciousness is a fundamental practice of the Ignatian spirituality tradition.
I developed this resource, An Examination of Consciousness for the Faith into Action workshop organised by the Wollongong Diocese. It combines prayer at the conclusion of the workshop with an opportunity for reflection and feedback to organizers. The images were chosen to reflect the workshop’s focus on the spirituality of Pope Francis.
The form contains two forms of examen – one for individual use and the other for groups reflecting together at the end of a meeting or workshop. The top section is a take home resource for participants while the bottom section can be filled in after the examen reflection and provided to organizers as feedback.
