This is an introductory course in spiritual accompaniment, sometimes known as ‘spiritual direction’. We aim, through teaching, practical sessions and personal prayer, to help you understand your own experience of God and of prayer better and to develop an appreciation of the variety of experiences you might encounter as you accompany others. We will be paying attention to basic listening skills in our practical sessions, and giving you opportunities to develop an ability to accompany others as they recount and explore their lives in the context of their faith. We emphasise the importance of discernment within a spiritual accompaniment session through noticing the movement of God in someone’s life. The course is based on the contemplative model of spiritual accompaniment, within the Ignatian spiritual tradition.
