She is the author of several books including The Spiritual Exercises Reclaimed: Uncovering Liberating Possibilities for Women (2001) and The Way of Discernment: Spiritual Practices for Decision Making (2008).

The first event is a talk titled ‘Ignatian spirituality for the 21st century’ and will take place on Thursday 11 May at Eldon Hogan Hall, Xavier College, Kew, Vic., at 7.30 pm. The cost is $30.

‘Ignatius of Loyola was a Catholic priest who lived 500 years ago — what has he got to offer to men and women of today?’ asks the promotional blurb. ‘Professor Liebert will offer a fresh perspective on the founder of the Society of Jesus, giving us insights into the gifts of Ignatius’ spirituality for the modern world.’

The second event is a seminar titled ‘Choosing wisely: being Christian in the church and in the world’. It will take place at Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality in Kew on Saturday 13 May from 9am–3pm. The cost is $70.

‘Our Western world is a culture of freedom and choice’, reads the blurb. ‘Our churches and our governments put before us choices that are sometimes in conflict.

‘How can we make our way through the confusing cacophony of voices? How can we decide which voices to follow? Professor Liebert leads us through this maze with the guidance of the wisdom of Ignatius of Loyola.’
