About Our Hospice Admission Procedures Hospice Programs A Gift Companioning


Companioning is about honouring the spirit:
      It is not about focusing on the intellect.

Companioning is about curiosity:
      It is not about expertise.

Companioning is about learning from others:
      It is not about teaching them.

Companioning is about walking alongside:
      It is not about leading or being led.

Companioning is about being still:
      It is not about frantic movement forward.

Companioning is about discovering the gifts of sacred silence:
      It is not about filling every painful moment with talk.

Companioning is about bearing witness to the struggles of others:
      It is not about judging or directing those struggles.

Companioning is about being present to another person's pain:
      It is not about taking away or relieving the pain.

Companioning is about respecting disorder and confusion:
      It is not about imposing order and logic.

Companioning is about going to the wilderness of the soul with another human being:
      It is not about thinking you are responsible for finding the way out.
