"it doesn't have to be the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just pay attention, then patch a few words together and don't try to make them elaborate. it isn't a contest but a doorway into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak." mary oliver
What is Spiritual Companioning?
Spiritual companioning is an invitation into deep listening...
to be more fully awake...to the movement of the sacred, to live more curiously with mystery and nurture encounter with the divine, in whatever name, form or meaning it has for you.
Spiritual companioning is not therapy, but it can be deeply therapeutic. Working side by side with you, listening deeply, I facilitate quiet, contemplative personal space that invites you to more clearly hear and articulate the questions of the spirit that are waiting to be asked or the stories wanting or needing to be given voice.
The companions in our work together are often various accessible art materials and expressive processes, even if you are not at all "artsy" or "creative." Art making and creativity have an unexpected, and often transformative way of opening doors of insight into your inner life that illuminate and heal.
How Does It Work?
I can meet with you once or on a more regular basis to accompany you on your spiritual path. Meeting once a month is usual practice, unless there is a particular need to meet more often. Sessions usually range from an hour to two hours. Contemplative art making works best when it is given spaciousness to unfold rather than be rushed. I work on a sliding fee scale of $40 to $75 per hour, but I am glad to work with you, or in some cases barter, if this is prohibitive for you.
