Spiritual Direction and Companioning

“I want to touch you deeply, beneath the surface where our real stories lie.”
—Richard Wagamese

To be a good writer, one must know how to be a good listener. Spiritual Companioning is a practice of listening deeply to the stories of others, to bring a sense of healing and wholeness to our busy fragmented lives. Vickie offers the gift of deep listening and presence to help others connect to their own inner knowing as they remember and re-write the stories of their lives.

As a yoga and meditation teacher, Vickie integrates  embodied practices of breath, movement, meditation, and prayerful awareness into spiritual companion sessions. She invites moments of silent reflection, creating space for Spirit to speak, and your own insight to emerge. Rooted and ordained in her Christian community, while also immersed in the teachings and practices of Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, and yoga philosophy, Vickie feels a deep sense of the sacred in all religions and traditions. Her inter-spiritual heart will honour whatever spiritual tradition(s) and practices you bring to our time together, as if they were her own.

Vickie offers Spiritual Companioning by phone, through zoom online, and in person, depending on your own comfort and preference.

Your first session is free, then together we decide on a reasonable payment for future sessions, based on your life situation.
