The principal “power tools” of spiritual direction and contemplative spirituality are well-timed, clearly stated questions that prompt reflection. We've crafted a unique pack of 35 cards with some of our favorite questions to help draw attention to the real features of our life experience and the presence and action of God.
The questions included in the Examen Qs are designed to help you: (1) Recognize where God is present and active; (2) Reflect on what God’s movement is stirring in you; (3) And prayerfully consider how you want to Respond.
These cards can be used in a variety of ways. They can serve as a focus for your daily Prayer of Examen, choosing one at random, or searching for a topic that draws you. They can also be used with individuals for whom you offer guidance. Finally, they can be enriching for a group or dinner table to help promote meaningful conversation about our life with God.
We hope these Examen Qs generate many moments of dynamic engagement between you, God and others.
Upon purchasing, we will process your order and send the Examen Qs card set to you through mail. Shipping costs calculated at checkout.
"If you've ever wanted to initiate (or deepen) a spiritual conversation, but were not sure how to go about it, these cards may be the resource you are looking for. I regularly thumb through the deck for inspiration before meeting with a friend or spiritual companion. Cooler evenings, might find my wife and I enjoying a relaxing end to the day around the hearth or fire pit. Even though we've been married 35 years, we grow closer, when we use one of these as a conversation starter. Thank You Beth and Dave!"

"This set of cards are so well done. Top notch quality both in style and content. Cards are plasticized so will last through years of use. The questions are simple enough, yet surprisingly, bring one to consider the deeper soul and sprit. A great aid personally and for interpersonal growth with others as you might share a question together. I imagine these cards would be a great resource for small groups to spark discussion and sharing. I highly recommend this small but mighty deck of cards. Very unique."
