Groundings is a monthly lecture series for anyone interested in deepening their spirituality, their capacity for deep listening, and their contemplative engagement in our world.  Groundings is sponsored by the Ignatian Spirituality Collective, a collaboration of Sacred Ground Center for Spirituality, Loyola Spirituality Center, and The Ignatian Spirituality Center at Saint Thomas More and meets on the third Tuesday of most months from 1-3 pm at St. Ignatius Hall in Saint Thomas More Catholic Church.

In this session, we offer our attention to Five Ordinary Movements (FOM) as we tend to contemplative dialogue with God, with others, and with our self. Together, we will look at the FOM: ups and downs, back and forth, cycling of spirals, tension of a web, and vibration of concentric circles as metaphors for both discerning the Presence of the Holy One in the context of ordinary life, as well for choosing life-giving responses in our interactions with others through contemplative dialogue. The session will include input from the facilitator, personal reflection time, small group sharing, and guided meditation practice.
