Spiritual Support & Soul Care

within the community

Sharing the journey within the “unity of care”

Sharing the journey means to offer spiritual care to those patients, relatives and staff (hospitals/homes) who would like to have someone supporting them during a particular phase in their lives. It is a journey, a relationship between two (or more) equal souls who are experiencing together that really they are deeply connected to and loved by the same Source.

To sit with another person in deep stillness might remind us of the loving presence that seems to flow through all of us from the Source. The person that we are with at the time is always the most important person there is and deserves that we are deeply attentive to whatever is unfolding in them.
