Accompaniment, Community and Nature

Accompaniment, Community and Nature

Author: Jonathan Herbert

 Has the art of accompaniment been lost in Western culture? Could nonjudgmental accompaniment be the answer to rising levels of isolation and loneliness? Could spending time with others from different or marginalized backgrounds reduce feelings of 'otherness' and lead to a more open, trusting society?

Exploring the themes above, this welcoming book offers models of relationships, interdependence, and community for individuals who are marginalized from society. It emphasizes the importance of being with people and time spent in physical activity and in the natural world, without demands being put on expressing feelings or even speaking out loud. It draws on the author's own vast experience and work with those on the edge of society - including living in a Christian community which welcomes those in terms of crisis, living in a Palestinian village, working with adults with autism and as chaplain to Gypsies and Travelers - providing a varied, insightful and heart-warming view on the benefits of accompaniment.
