Level 3 Diploma in Practical Spirituality and Wellness
Crossfields Institute has developed this qualification to enables learners to clarify and implement their own spiritual wellbeing practice, which then provides the foundation for supporting and enabling others. The qualification emphasises the development of maturity, autonomy and self-management. It delivers two levels of benefits to learners:
Learners are supported in developing their own spiritual approach and practice that can benefit their physical and psychological health. At the same time, they develop the ability to give informal holistic spiritual support as a way of serving their immediate and wider communities.
The qualification delivers several benefits to its graduates.
- It is the gateway into the professional network of the Spiritual Companions Trust, whose members deliver a holistic approach to pastoral care in both formal and informal situations.
- It supports learners in their own work places and professional roles, as a form of extended professional development, developing their ability to give appropriate pastoral care.
- It can be harnessed to their other professional qualifications and skills to develop a career in a more explicit pastoral direction. (See below 1.2.4)
- It prepares learners to progress to a qualification in a congruent subject area such as psychotherapy, counselling, healthcare, chaplaincy and theology.
The Spiritual Companions Trust is an educational charity. They develop resources and programmes at the interface of health, wellbeing and spirituality.
They celebrate diversity and welcome people from all spiritual traditions and none at all, with an approach that requires care and sensitive awareness — a light touch.
