10 Reasons to consider
Let's make it happen!
First, the Spiritual Companion and the participant have an initial meeting to determine if they are a good match.
Then, if both parties believe they are compatible and wish to move forward they will agree upon a time each month to meet for one hour. (In times of crisis, they may agree to meet more often.)
Fees for Spiritual Direction are based on a sliding scale: $55-$85 per hour.
A Spiritual Companion, also known as a Spiritual Director, is someone who offers a supportive, non-judgmental and confidential place to share and understand one's own personal story. Together, you along with your Spiritual Companion, will discover the movement of the Divine in and through your life.
Spiritual Companioning is a relationship that is going somewhere. God is leading the person to a deeper experiential faith and it is God who is the REAL spiritual director. God touches the human heart directly. The Spiritual Companion does not “direct” in the sense of giving advice and solving problems. Rather, your Companion will help you to respond to God’s invitation to a deeper relationship.
I am a trained Spiritual Director. However, as we learned on the first day of our certification program, we already were "who" we needed to be. No amount of training can make someone a spiritual director. It is a part of my DNA, so to speak. With that said, I choose to call myself a Spiritual Companion, which I find more inviting and accurate in description. For years I have facilitated spiritual groups and have had the pleasure of walking with others as they asked the tough questions and explored the deep longings of the heart.
Beginning in September, 2020, I will once again be offering one on one Spiritual Companioning. I know from my own personal journey the gift of being in a committed relationship with a Spiritual Companion. I know that I belong to a Power Greater than myself and so do you. Are you ready for something more? Your Beloved awaits!
