Suggestions to complete the Examen:
Schedule at least 45 minutes to complete this Examen. Remember that is not about filling the form but about wondering with God what is happening in you, what the Holy Spirit is doing in you.
Begin with 5-10 minutes of silence. Be centered. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you see what you need to see.
Prayerfully consider each question and listen as you respond. It is a conversation with God. Allow your written reflections to flow from that conversation.
Remember that sections and questions are more prompts than a questionnaire you need to complete. You don’t need to answer all the questions.
After you have written your reflections, prayerfully review what you are comfortable sharing with your director before your session. Paragraphs, notes, or bullet points are good as answers.
Thanks for submitting your examen
