Breathing Space

What we all need but so rarely get

It is not counselling
            or therapy
            or psychoanalysis
            a cosy chat around the fire
            the sociability of friends
It does not strive for intimacy or disclosure
Neither is it consultancy
            or mentoring
            or spiritual direction

But it is a space
            where the soul breathes
            and tells the stories without embarrassment

And out of the stories the dialogue happens
As when depth meets breadth to produce a landscape

It is hospitality
      and journey
      and story reborn
