I’ve spent many years learning, growing and developing in the direction of advancing the cause of therapeutic spiritual counseling, and over the past several years, I have progressed from primarily studying existing works on this topic to primarily learning through direct observation and experiencing of my clients and of life situations. The more I understand, the simpler it gets. More listening, permitting the client to simply process where their mind takes them, less talking. As they say on the classic rock stations, “Less talk, more rock”! Don’t worry so much about “what to do”, focus on letting the client process his material, and realize that, if you’re not compulsively getting in the way of it, sessions mostly consist of allowing the client to freely manifest what is present for him, and allowing him to simply and directly experience, and thus process it, rather than falling in love with “techniques” or “processes”, as these only exist to facilitate the manifesting and processing, as or when needed. The path to spiritual liberation is in the direction of less adherence to any complex systematized set of procedures, and more simply granting, and inviting the individual the freedom to follow where his spiritual compass leads him in the moment.
