We human beings are in a protracted struggle with existential shame, but we have tool to combat that: confession. This week I want to share with you the practicalities of making and receiving a confession. Lest you think this is going to be a magic bullet process that makes everything better instantly, the process is more “agricultural”, preparing and fertilizing the soil of our souls. Practicing these techniques will help lead us into a “confessorial” lifestyle.
Also, if you haven’t listened to the lesson on examen of consciousness, that will also help prepare you for these exercises and the lessons in the week ahead.
