3. And I can help you develop your spiritual practice. When appropriate, I can help you explore skills, practices and understandings that will support you in self-managing your spiritual and personal journey with mature autonomy.
What does a Spiritual Mentor Do?
What do you talk about with a Spiritual Mentor?
Here are a few possibilities:
Pay attention when something in the present reminds you of a past experience, bringing up joy, sadness or anger; and ask yourself if there could be a new meaning or significance.
Look at parts of your life that invite discernment, decision or action.
Notice and celebrate where love, joy and commitment bring peace to you and others.
Delve into how your concept of "God," or your experience of Divine presence emerges, changes and shifts through your life.
What do you feel in the places that are sacred or holy to you? How do the feelings affect your everyday activities and thoughts?
Share a powerful or unexpected experience of connection with other people or with nature.
