Dr. Thomas John is currently accepting new spiritual companions. Bookings for expert consulting services may be arranged upon request.
Spiritual companionship, also known as spiritual direction, is the practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their personal spirituality and/or relationship with the divine. During spiritual companionship, a person shares stories of his or her encounters of the divine, or how he or she is cultivating a life attuned to spiritual things. The companion listens and asks questions to assist in the process of reflection and growth. Spiritual companionship assists in the development of a deeper awareness with the spiritual aspects of being human and utlimately a more meaningful life. While some of the concepts of companionship may overlap with that of psychotherapy, it is not counseling and should mental health issues need be be addressed, an appropriate referral will be made.
In addition to regular spiritual companionship, the following specialty areas may be chosen to focused upon:
- Meditation and Mindfulness
- Existential Angst
- Metaphysical or Non-Traditional Beliefs
- Unusual Events / Paranormal Experiences (e.g. shadow people, UFOs, etc.)
- Tantra and Sacred Sexuality
- Humanist Spirituality / Non-Theism
Persons of all backgrounds welcomed regardless of religion, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. My approach is open to single faiths, mixed beliefs, and interspiritual practices.
