Abstract

Hierdie artikel beskryf 'n verkennende ondersoek na die belewenis van 'n groep teologiese studente van die Universiteit van KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) by die lees van Rut 2 aan die hand van Ignatius van Lojola se meditatiewe tegnieke. Dit ontleed die genderverwante aspekte van hulle ervaring met die doel om kernaspekte daarvan te bepaal. Dit tref ook 'n vergelyking tussen die belewenis van die manlike en die vroulike deelnemers aan die studie, en evalueer die uitwerking van die verskillende aspekte van die oefening op mans en vroue.


This study set out to explore the subjective experience of using the Ignatian method of meditation to reflect on and pray through Ruth 2. A group of male and female theology students from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) were invited to reflect upon / pray through Ruth 2 using this method. Following this exercise, participants were invited to participate in a focus group in which they shared their experience of this exercise, focusing particularly on some of the gendered aspects of the experience. The transcribed focus group material was subjected to a critical thematic analysis in order to identify the reported subjective experiences and which aspects of the experience of using this method of meditation were responsible for these experiences. The analysis also included a comparison of the experience for men and women, and the differential effect of various aspects of the exercise on men and women.
