Featured Units and Courses
The name “Sentir”
The word sentir is one Saint Ignatius used frequently in the Spiritual Exercises. In Spanish sentir can be used as both a noun and a verb to communicate not an intellectual activity per se, but a felt-knowing of God, a knowing with the heart, an affective activity. This felt-knowing is what we help our students get in touch with in their own lives, and what we form them to help others to get in touch with in their lives.
Our courses encourage a student to:
- encounter the mystery of God
- be open to personal transformation
- engage in study which is academically rigorous
- integrate his or her personal experience with theoretical learning
- work with God to build the Reign of God in his or her life-world.
