Welcome, so glad you are here.

We are thrilled you would consider joining our writing community by sharing on the Companioning Center's weekly blog. We are a diverse group of writers who also companion others in various capacities. In bringing together a variety of voices, our desire is to hear the thread of Love's underlying voice. We are listeners who speak to fellow listeners.  

We hope that through our collaborative process, your writing about spiritual formation will broaden both of our audiences. We want our readers to be your readers and your readers to be our readers, all benefiting from a community of resources designed to meet the needs of a diverse Spiritual Companioning community. We welcome your use of past work or simultaneously published work on your blog.
