Spiritual Guidance and Companioning

With Alice Holstein, Ed.D.

Member, Spiritual Directors International (SDI)

A process for personal growth

A path to a more meaningful spirituality

A confidential, safe place to be deeply heard and affirmed with a trained listener

An avenue to deeper meaning in life

A look at self, connections, suffering and gifts

A sanctuary for exploring transitions, grief and loss, joys, relationships and more

It is NOT therapy or counseling



My Framework

Deep and abiding faith in human growth potential

Profound respect for the person and whatever life has presented

A personal, eclectic journey, a spiritual not religious path

Welcome seekers, agnostics, non-believers and the devout

Personal Strengths

Establish trust quickly, listen for the heart of things, respond with deep compassion

Unusual maturity and wisdom from a varied life and substantial suffering

Non-denominational flexibility

Experience includes military service, community development organizations, college teaching, self-employed organization consultant, published author and veterans mental health

Developed new way of seeing mental illness as a spiritual path

Expertise for elders, those in mid-life crisis, women’s issues, and mental illness

Especially qualified to facilitate group spiritual experiences

Expectations

No charge for initial conversation

Requires time and commitment, not a McDonald’s drive-in experience

Willingness to try 3 sessions, then evaluate

48 hour cancellation notice

One hour sessions, making this a priority

We develop a sacred contract, focused on you, that is other than a friendship
