Local Companionship

Perhaps you’re wondering – just what is an SDI Community?

It’s an SDI-sponsored and locally-run group of spiritual companions. These people gather in their region on a regular basis to connect, support one another, network, share contemplative time and practice new skills in spiritual care. An SDI Community can operate anywhere in the world.

Let us know if you’d be interested in starting one in your own community. You can email our director of content and communities, Steven Crandell, here: [email protected]


We're glad you're here.
