Forming specialists in Marist leadership and spirituality

20/10/2017: Spain

The first week of the 'Specialist in Leadership and Marist Spirituality' course (Especialista en Liderazgo y Espiritualidad Marista - ELEM) was held in October at the Marist House of Roxos, Spain, with the participation of 24 members of management teams as well as local and pastoral animation of the educational works of the Compostela province.

The experience was a new inward journey to answer the question “who am I?” and to advance in a process of personal and, above all, professional development.

Josean Manzanos, director of the workshops of interiority in the last years, began the week by deepening in our qualities, dreams, values, restlessness ...

The next stop of the trip was with Enrique Martínez Lozano who introduced the figure of Jesus of Nazareth and the Beatitudes through his spirituality, his life experience and his TRUTH.

It seems incredible, to see how it stirs you inside and gives a name and form to what you considered unnamable.

The part of leadership was given by María de Grupo P&A, in charge of following up on our competencies as leaders, and for our Province Compostela, Roberto and Román were a face to each team.

At the same time, we were able to visualize the designed and continued process of spirituality formation in our province in recent years.

In the words of the participants:

 “…the most important thing of this week are the people who have shared moments, illusions, fears ... Especially, the four extraordinary people who have prepared everything with so much affection, making us feel part of our Marist family”

“The days in Roxos were an excellent experience for me of reflection and of interiority. The wealth of the group and the moments of experiencing the silence have created a perfect space for personal growth and for living from "being".”

“Experience. The ELEM course provided moments of encounter with others, favouring the spirit of family and fellowship among teachers from different colleges of the province, but it mainly provided moments of encounter with myself, through different experiences.”
