Our special Dr. Keith Anderson, the author of Reading Your Life’s Story, An Invitation to Spiritual Mentoring. Dr. Anderson is the president of The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. Spiritual mentoring is a particular kind of friendship in which, according to Keith R. Anderson, “two or more people walk together in heightened awareness of the presence of yet Another”—the Holy Spirit.
“Spiritual mentoring is not a complicated process that requires technical training and complex protocol,” Anderson continues. “It is essential, authentic, and maybe even natural human speech that is focused, disciplined and nurtured by training for one of the hardest natural things we do: listening reflectively to another. It is sacred companionship as life is lived and story told. Available to almost all, it requires deliberate recruitment, preparation and practice.”
