In order to companion others in a meaningful way, we need to understand their nobility. We have to believe they have the ability to handle things even when they don’t think they can. Digging deeper to the real issue (the place they have control over) requires us to be quiet and wait for them to process answers. We don’t rush and we make sure we have the time to really be there. It takes some practice to be able to companion someone without letting them repeat the same thing over and over. Teaching others to companion someone effectively may take several role playing rounds to keep the focus on the other person and know when to ask the virtues and closing questions.

What challenges have you faced that you are willing to share and let someone practice companioning on you? Do you have any ideas for role playing?
This response will be awarded full points automatically, but it will be reviewed and possibly adjusted after submission.
I am willing to let people practice companioning me on just about anything that is not recent, although I have done that on occasion. I think role playing as trying to companion a super hero or character in a book or movie is always an interesting way to practice as well. I especially like to use characters with accents 🙂
How would you teach this differently with a small group vs a large group? How would you make this shorter or longer based on how much time you have? Does anything need to be adjusted for younger, older, family, co-workers, etc?
