Since March 2019, Mitch has completed several Enneagram training classes, peer supervision and practice sessions with clients. The Enneagram is an important tool in helping clients: (1) identify how their inner Sacred Self was shutdown and then masked by compensating behaviors, (2) become aware of how their predominant ego-fixations and ways of dealing with pain get in the way of effective living, and (3) apply strategies for living from our highest virtuous behavior, rediscovering and expressing our most healthy, Sacred Selves.
Since May 2020, Mitch has completed three Internal Family Systems (IFS) trainings, peer practice groups and Supervision, which allows him to work with clients to heal young, vulnerable wounded subpersonality parts and befriend protector parts. This has been found to diminish the obstacles to inner spiritual connection.
Inter-spiritual Spiritual Companions / Directors support all kinds of people with their various foundational belief systems on their current spiritual journeys through life. Believing the spiritual experience takes place in many forms, not just organized religion, Spiritual Companion / Directors focus on individual relationships and building small communities of exploration, deep inner work and finding one’s own true path. Inter-spiritual Spiritual Direction draws from the Perennial Wisdom of all spiritual traditions and teachings, and strives to focus on inclusion, social awareness, and cultivating consciousness.
Inter-spiritual Spiritual Companion / Directors:
*DO NOT PROSELYTIZE, SEEK TO INFLUENCE OR CONVINCE OTHERS OF ANYTHING; RATHER, THEY WALK WITH PEOPLE WHO MUST DISCOVER THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL AND UNIQUE SPIRITUAL JOURNEYS.
Far too many of us were taught religious dogma or fear-based rituals and practices by our parents, clergy and religious school teachers. For those who left religion because of this trauma, or who are suffering from guilt or anxiety resulting from the trauma, Spiritual Companion / Direction can support the client in reclaiming the meaningful wisdom from their religion of origin, as well as from other pathways. In this way, a new spiritual path can be embarked upon, with the early life religious trauma resolved.
