In this issue of Theologika Digest, our focus is on moving toward God freely and knowledgeably in order to have “life to the full” as Jesus promised. Psychology – the study of the soul – has many techniques and insights to help us on our journey. We combine insights from psychology with those of St. Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556), a great master of spiritual psychology, who has given us a form of prayer and psychological searching, the Examen, to help us along the way.
