Spiritual Direction/Companionship and Deep Listening

Spiritual Direction/Companionship and Deep Listening

 

Presented by

Rev. Dr. Daniel Rodriguez Schlorff

 

Enhance or refine your coaching practice in spiritual direction/companionship.

How many times, as a coach, have you entered a space that is both sacred and numinous? Perhaps a discussion of a traumatized past transforms into reclaiming history. Perhaps seeing the holy in the mundane occurs after years of being closed off. This is the lifeblood of spiritual direction/companionship, which is the process of contemplative listening carried out in the context of a trusting relationship.

This workshop will provide a very brief overview of journeying with another person, listening to that person's life story with an ear for the movement of the spirit or sacred, offering supportive responses as appropriate, and encouraging reflection about new paths of growth.
