The book is intended for those who want to celebrate and remember their experiences in the Ignatian Spirituality in Education Workshop (ISEW). Contents of the book were drawn from the documentation of several runs of the ISEW for the faculty of Grade School, High School, and Loyola Schools. Readers can also find in it a collection of talks by Jesuit leaders on the life and spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the Society of Jesus and the vision-mission of the Ateneo de Manila University. It also contains witnessing and syntheses of known faculty like Onofre Pagsanghan, Doreen Fernandez, Mari-Jo Ruiz, and Resurreccion Palma-Alejo shared during the ISEW.
