Our Spiritual Companions are available to accompany you in a process of reflection and response rooted in the sharing of your own sacred stories and spiritual issues.
Through deep, compassionate listening and gentle inquiry, Spiritual Companioning (formerly called Spiritual Direction) helps awaken you to the Divine in all of life and helps you to notice God’s presence in the moments of daily life. Tau Center offers spiritual companioning as a component of our Guided Day Retreat. Learn more or schedule here. All are welcome.
If you are interested in exploring ongoing Spiritual Companioning as part of your personal faith journey, please reach out directly to one of the individuals listed below.
