What is Spiritual Accompaniment?


Spiritual accompaniment is a way of meeting with someone - a spiritual director or guide - to reflect on your faith. Each session usually lasts about an hour. The director does not offer answers or solutions but rather through listening, reflection and questions, encourages you to discern and discover, acknowledging God’s presence in the time together.
