Spiritual & Grief Companionship
Br. Anselm Philip, OSB
I Will Walk With You in Your Journey
When you are discerning where life is taking you; you need a companion.
When you are grieving the loss of someone you love; you need a companion.
When you are grieving the loss of a job, a career, or because we have become disabled; you need a companion.
You need a companion who will walk with you by listening and giving you a safe and nonjudgmental space to feel your feelings openly with compassion and understanding; without needing to make another appointment to go somewhere else other than your home. You need a companion who is not another director, therapist or advisor who will bill you or your insurance, but accept a reasonable donation.
I want to be your spiritual or grief companion.
