Spiritual Companioning

I will listen to what you say.
You and I can turn and look
at the silent river and wait.
We know
the current is there; hidden: 
and there
are comings and goings from miles away

that hold the stillness exactly before us.
What the river says, that is what I say.
~William Stafford

Exploring the spiritual aspect of being human cultivates curiosity about a sacred mystery that pulses between our heartbeats, a hidden spring beneath the concreteness of daily thinking and doing. Spiritual guidance supports a settling, a quieting, an attentive listening for a deeper wisdom that awaits our discovery. My interspiritual approach provides a safe refuge for seeking, holding questions, discernment, meaning-making and being respectfully witnessed.

When we enter into this sacred space, I may offer the following invitations and guidance:

  • Exploration of Spirit’s presence in the interface of BodyMindSpirit
  • Development of daily spiritual practices such as:
    • Centering prayer
    • Meditation
    • Lectio Divina
    • Mandala making
    • Journaling
  • Creation of your spiritual autobiography
  • Exploraton of meaningful vocation
  • Cultivating an attitude of gratitude
  • Guided imagery
  • Exploration of archetypes, symbols and synchronicities
  • Dream work
  • Finding the extraordinary in the daily ordinary
  • Rituals & ceremonies
  • Soul strolls (conscious time in nature)
  • Preparation for personal retreat, vision quest or pilgrimage

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.
~Wendell Berry
