Spiritual friendship exists at the connection between our deepest longings for experiencing our desire to become fully mature humans. In our highly driven, cognitive oriented culture – our inner beings long for friendship and connection, with others who share our longing.
A true spiritual friend engages us as an equal, desires our best interests, as we desire theirs. Spiritual friends cultivate an inner stillness of soul and body that enables us to be aware. The practice of spiritual friendship is a lifelong growth in listening and conversation.
