Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher. Your presence and mindfulness may be what you & your students need.
Spiritual companioning is the process of sharing one's sacred stories with a trained, compassionate listener. It can be helpful to anyone seeking spiritual growth, healing, or a deeper connection with the Divine and others. It is a time-honored practice of compassionate, non-judgmental listening to another in a safe setting where what is shared is held with reverence and confidentiality.
So why one on one or a group for educators? The teaching profession is demanding. Educators are challenged to balance life tasks, teaching, and family. There are the conundrums of today’s classroom. Whether a teacher in a private or public school, bringing spiritual practices to our teaching can soften the days troubles. It can support us in dealing with students, parents and colleagues.
Whether one on one, or in a group, seeking counsel with a spiritual companion can put delight, pleasure, and gifts into your day. This informational meeting may help you better understand how spiritual practices dovetail with a life as an educator.
