Rachel has been an active member of churches in different Christian traditions over the last 30 years. She was first introduced to Ignatian Spirituality while she was living in London, and it felt like coming home. She discovered a tradition with a rich spiritual heritage that could resonate with post-modern Christians.
Rachel has since completed training in Spiritual Accompaniment and in giving the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius with the Epiphany Group in Edinburgh. She is currently a member of the Core Committee of the Epiphany Group and is part of the Prayer and Spirituality Group of the Episcopal Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway. Rachel lives in Galloway where she set up Aig Fois to offer quiet days and retreats from the living tradition of Ignatian Spirituality.
Harriet has been interested in Christian spirituality for several years. She became involved in retreats and quiet days while living in Ireland. Initially attracted to Celtic Spirituality, she has more recently explored Ignatian approaches to prayer, drawing closer to God and deepening awareness of who we are created to be.
Harriet lives and works in Dumfries & Galloway and enjoys walking, travel, music and art. She recently made the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius in daily life and is currently training in Spiritual Accompaniment.
Rachel can also offer , by arrangement:
- Individual spiritual accompaniment. Which is the practice of being with people as they reflect on their spiritual journey. The guide listens and asks questions to assist the person in their process of reflection.
- The Ignatian Spiritual Exercises.
- Individually Guided Retreats. These can be either residential or non-residential.
