“Robin Daniels worked for four decades as a Jungian analyst. Since his recent death his widow, Katherine, has been preparing a manuscript he wrote, entitled Heart to Heart Listening, for publication. In this extract Daniels invites the reader to reflect on what constitutes ‘good’ listening, the obstacles that hinder this, and how it might best be put into practice.”
The essay, for which this is the abstract, can be found here (PDF). It was published in the July 2016 issue of the British Jesuits publication The Way.
The issue also has good articles, one, a translated essay by French Jesuit Priest & Philosopher Michel de Certeau in which he traces the influence of Ignatian spirituality on his thought. While in another essay, Oscar Momanyi reflects on literally following in Ignatius’ footsteps on the Camino Ignaciano, and describes the lasting effects that this pilgrimage has had on him.
In many ways I think I’d prefer to walk the Camino Ignaciano rather than the more popular Camino de Santiago, which comprises many pilgrim routes, e.g. The French Way which is the longest (780km) and most popular of the five main routes. It runs from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port on the French side of the Pyrenees to Roncesvalles on the Spanish side before making its way through to Santiago de Compostela through the major cities of Pamplona, Logroño, Burgos and León.
The “Camino Ignaciano,” or the “Ignatian way” is a 640km pilgrim route and begins at the birthplace of Íñigo López de Loyola (who later became Saint Ignatius of Loyola) in Spain’s Basque country, in a village near the small town of Azpeitia. From there, the route proceeds through picturesque mountains, deserts, and plains, before ending in the town of Manresa near Barcelona. Look at some of the beautiful photos on this site.
