Presence: An International Journal of Spiritual Companionship is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes thought-provoking articles on topics of interest to spiritual directors and everyone interested in creating healing, peace, and justice through spiritual companionship. The goal of Presence is to identify current trends in the field, to provide background and resources for spiritual companions and those they companion, and to look ahead at what might be developing in the future. Presence is published in March, June, September, and December. Currently, Presence is read by more than seven-thousand subscribers and members of SDI, and can be found in major theological libraries and formation and training centers around the world. Digital Presence is included with SDI membership at no extra charge.
