Companioning at the Edges is the title of a new book recently published by WellSpring Centre. The book, which explores new dimensions of spiritual direction/companioning, contains fourteen essays written by Australian spiritual direction practitioners.

WellSpring Director, Rev Ann Lock, writes, “Imagine a book for people yearning to companion each other in deepening their experiences of life. A book for companions who may be spiritual directors, for those with diverse spiritual perspectives and care practitioners in the wider community. Imagine that it tells the story of the valuable role spiritual companioning/direction has in responding to the needs of our society and impacting our broader world.’’

Rev. Tim Costello, Senior Fellow at the Centre for Public Christianity, says, “This anthology shows the range of areas and approaches spiritual direction can deepen and enrich. In these uncertain and anxiety-producing times I think the work and insights in these essays will be greatly appreciated by many and will further help the wider community.”

Companioning at the Edges will be launched on 1 May 2021, from 2 to 4pm, at WellSpring Centre by the founder of WellSpring, Rev Jill Manton.
