Growth in Prayer and Reflective Living (GPRL)

Epiphany Group

This course aims to help people to pray and live reflectively by offering an opportunity to explore faith, discover meaning, and come to a deeper relationship with God.

For whom is the course intended?

The course is intended for those of different denominations and none. No particular ability in prayer is required, only a desire for God.

Course Content

  • Different ways of praying taken from Ignatian, Celtic and other spiritual traditions.
  • Awareness of our different perceptions of God. The use of a journal and the value of self-awareness as aids to reflective living.
  • Prayer experienced through music, art and movement.
  • An introduction to Ignatian discernment, through which a person may come to make choices which celebrate the unique giftedness conferred on them by the Creator.


The method is experience-based and reflective. It includes small group sharing. Also, because of the participatory nature of the course, it is important that there is a commitment to attend regularly.

In addition to the weekly, or monthly, group meetings – depending on location –  participants are offered the opportunity of one-to-one spiritual accompaniment.

Towards the end of the course there is a short retreat.
