The Way of Companionship: Five core practices to support healing is the second book in The Companionship Series by WC Rennebohm.
The Way of Companionship – Companionship is at the heart of a community’s caring response. The Companionship ministry described in this booklet was developed by Rev. Craig Rennebohm, a Mental Health Chaplain who for more than two decades worked on the streets of Seattle providing assistance to people experiencing mental illnesses and substance use challenges. Companionship includes listening, sharing the journey with a person side-by-side, neighboring (acknowledging our common humanity), providing hospitality, and helping develop a “circle of care.” This booklet describes how to develop and nurture these vital practices of companionship.
