Spiritual Companion ~ a benevolent presence deeply connected to the wonder of life.
Imagine a space where you feel held, supported and fully heard. A space where there’s no judgements, where compassion and gentle kindness exist side-by-side. A space where you can pause, reflect, and consider your own pathway up to this point … and where it may lead you next.
As a Spiritual Companion, I offer compassionate, non-judgemental and neutral support for those who are in a state of spiritual emergence or spiritual emergency — or those who are spiritually curious. I hold the space and meet you where you are, providing a listening ear and, occasionally, appropriate questioning to help you unpack your spiritual journey.
We work with the Spiritual Companions Guidelines to bring it all back to you — your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states. In a gentle, supportive and confidential atmosphere we find that still point and connection that is inherent within you, and work from there.
In particular, the Spiritual Companions Agreement explains best what I do to support you in this process:
- I am a benevolent presence who hears your story
I will reassure and support you through careful listening, enquiry and responses, seeking fully to understand your personal story and circumstances.
- I may remind you that life is a spiritual journey
When appropriate, I may have a conversation with you exploring that, whatever your circumstances, you are on a life-long journey of spiritual and personal development, developing your heart and consciousness.
- And I may help you develop your spiritual practice
When appropriate, I may help you explore the skills, practices and understandings that will support you in self-managing your spiritual and personal journey with mature autonomy.
