Art of Spiritual Counseling: Helping Friends in Need @ East West Bookshop
Aug 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Taught by Nayaswami Jamuna Snitikin

Taught by Nayaswami Jamuna Snitikin

2 Tuesdays, July 29 and August 5, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
All of us have been able to share our insights with friends when they need someone to talk to on the bumpy road of life. But we perhaps wonder sometimes, if we have really served them well.

The art of spiritual counseling is a way of allowing the one asking the questions to access their own wisdom as you provide the loving space.

We all have a source of truth within ourselves which knows what is going on for us. Advice from someone else is not as effective as when I find the answers within myelf.

Learn how to hold the intuitive, answering space for others so that they can learn and grow spiritually with confidence.

Presented by Nayaswami Jamuna Snitkin, teacher and friend.
