 Grace upon Grace: Savouring the Spiritual Exercises through the Arts is a contemporary, gender-inclusive retreat of the full Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius. The 30-week retreat in daily life has been developed for both retreatant and retreat-giver (spiritual director) as a fresh and creative adaptation of the original Spiritual Exercises, and for those who recognise that poetry, art, movement and music gently hold the sacred Mystery in a way that cannot otherwise be expressed. Grace upon Grace also offers an eight-day Ignatian retreat. The book uniquely focuses on the arts especially poetry which is included in all sections of the book.
The spiritual directors and their retreatants who have used this text in its developmental stages, have found themselves writing their own poetry as prayer.




Melbourne: Windsor Scroll Publishing, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
