    What is your best Gateway?
    Q: In what circumstances do you most easily connect with the wonder and energy of life? Nature? Sport? Arts? Movement? Meditation? Music? Healing? There are many gateways …
    If you know what circumstances work best for you, then do it every day. This is the foundation of daily spiritual practice. This is the real fuel of life!

    My own best fuel, my daily practice, is meditation. I also appreciate nature, solitude and reading. I experience a lot of magic in groups whether I am teaching or learning. I also like watching television and being on my motorbike. All these connect me easily with spirit.

    August 2015 I am taking a 6-month break from public workshops while I create videos, audios and digital resources for online courses. When completed this means that my material will be more accessible and generally available. I will then re-start my public programme.

    You can participate in the this course at two levels. The choice is yours.
    • Explore and deepen your spiritual practice — and enjoy the process.

    • Complete a full portfolio to achieve the Certificate of Professional Practice in Spiritual Studies and Companionship — which will enable you to practice publicly as a Spiritual Companion.
    The course is grounded in the Spiritual Companions Guidelines
    Spiritual Companions is a project that seeks to meet the growing need for spiritually competent people, whose approach is holistic rather than based solely in one faith tradition.

    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.

    “The concept of spiritual companionship, that is, pastoral care without the baggage of specific religious doctrine, is crucial in our culture, in our time. So many people who are uncomfortable with the narrow focus of institutional religions crave a spiritual life, a spiritual path. Spiritual Companions are well equipped to help those who are ‘not religious, just spiritual’ to open their awareness, understand their quest and develop a satisfying spiritual life.” — Ramona K. Silipo, Spiritual Companion :rose:
