For many years, Manresa sponsored an Internship in Ignatian Spirituality. Manresa has revised this Internship in Ignatian Spirituality into two separate but related programs: a Seminar on Ignatian Spirituality the four mini-courses of which are open to everyone, and an Internship in Spiritual Companionship. Completion of the four mini-courses of the Seminar on Ignatian Spirituality is a prerequisite for the Internship in Spiritual Companionship.

The seminar introduces participants to Ignatian Spirituality. Ignatian Spirituality is for ordinary people living ordinary daily lives. Because it insists that God is with us, this spirituality is a pathway to deeper prayer, good decisions guided by the fruits of discernment, and a life of service to others. It is rooted in developing a real and personal relationship with Jesus and living as His companion in service.

The seminar is organized into four mini-courses.
