Ignatian guide training

Registration Info and Cost

You can apply for the upcoming cohort by requesting, filling out and submitting your application along with two letters of recommendation. Once we receive your application and letters of recommendation, we will respond in order to schedule a phone or face-to-face conversation. If you are accepted into the program, a $300 registration fee is required to reserve your spot.

The cost for the training is $1500 per year, which includes the $300 registration fee. The balance can be paid in full or in 4 equal payments of $300. You will be invoiced for each payment over the course of the nine months.  


Books, lodging and transportation aren’t included in the cost of the training. Limited lodging is available at Fall Creek Abbey at no cost to out-of-town participants. All meals are included during each intensive.


A training cohort for Ignatian Guides is comprised of no more than 9 individuals who meet together five times over the course of nine months. We meet at the Abbey on Friday, 8 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, 8 am to 3 pm.
