About Spiritual Companions
Spiritual Companions was originally founded by spiritual educator and author William Bloom in conjunction with the Foundation for Holistic Spirituality. Since then the Spiritual Companions Trust has been granted charitable status as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) charity number 1155777.
Spiritual Companion Mentors hold a Certificate in Professional Practice in Spiritual Studies and Companionship which is accredited by the College of Teachers and is a professional UK and European qualification/accreditation.
As individuals and as a community we believe in the profound benefits of spirituality for personal and social wellbeing. We therefore support people informally and formally on their spiritual journeys in one-to-one and group situations as well as offering training.
What is Spirituality?
Our definition of Spirituality:
Spirituality is everyone’s natural connection with the wonder and energy of life; and the instinct to explore that experience and its meaning.
We then go on https://www.viagrasansordonnancefr.com/ to suggest that:
Spirituality affirms that personal development is about the growth of compassion and consciousness — not material success and status, but love in action.
This definition sits comfortably within the global trend away from adherence to a single faith tradition towards a more generalised, diverse and inclusive approach. In other words: spiritual but not religious.
The Heart of Spirituality
We suggest that at the heart of spirituality is every individual’s own authentic experience of the wonder and energy of life. It is this natural connection with the wonder and energy of life that supports and fuels people in their personal development and wellbeing. This then scales up from the individual into the community.
Spiritual Companions Service
I gained the Spiritual Companion certificate in 2009 as part of my personal and spiritual development and have since qualified as a Spiritual Companion Mentor .
I offer service in accordance with the Spiritual Companions Agreement :
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.
