Grounded in good science and inspired by the best in spirituality, Your Spiritual Health Programme will help you to boost your emotional well-being; improve your physical and mental health, and connect with the good things in life.
There is a wealth of evidence that spirituality can be beneficial for your health, happiness and well-being. The Spiritual Health Programme shows you exactly how to bring these good things into your life. It is the result of ten years research and development by a group of educators dedicated to understanding and clarifying the connections between spirituality and good health. The Spiritual Companions Trust, which developed this programme, are not affiliated with any particular spiritual or religious tradition. Our approach is person centred. We believe that the secret to good spiritual health is to ask the right questions starting with: How does it work best for you?
Guided by John – who is a tutor for the Spiritual Companion’s Trust accredited Diploma in Practical Spirituality and Wellness – we will journey together, focusing on these three important elements at the heart of the Spiritual Health Programme:
The foundation of spiritual health is your personal connection with the wonder and energy of life. From a flower, through a child’s smile, to the awesome night sky there is a magic and beauty to existence. It is crucial that day-by-day you have times of connecting with this wonder and energy. Being connected is a normal and natural experience. People have it all the time, but they do not always recognise that it is happening.
One of the most inspiring and reassuring ideas in spirituality is that our lives are meaningful journeys. From birth to death you are on a spiritual journey to become a wiser and better person. Every situation, easy or painful, is an opportunity to become more loving, compassionate and conscious. This is the true foundation of happiness and inner peace. And because everything is connected, our personal development of love and compassion ripples out to support the wider community.
The third foundation of spiritual health is to give care and love to others. You are part of the web of life and your spiritual generosity supports everyone’s health. Caring for others triggers a feedback loop of wellbeing that nourishes your own body and soul. From childhood many people have a quiet knowing that being a good person and caring for others makes the world a better place. There is also a hidden benefit for all of us: caring for others and being kind are good too for our own health. Caring for others also brings the emotional and psychological benefits of integrity, meaning and self-respect. And it builds community.
This workshop will be very participative with plenty of time for sharing and developing our own experience. We will also spend time outside (weather permitting) and have a trip to the Findhorn River to practice what we are working with within the larger group.
Our quoted prices are fully inclusive of participation in the workshop or event, accommodation in our guest rooms (including towels and linen), all meals and refreshments, and full access to our community facilities like our meditation sanctuaries. Some facilities, like our saunas and hot tub, ask for a donation for use.
