“While spiritual conversation can explicitly treat spiritual topics, it mainly concerns the quality of listening and the quality of speaking. Spiritual conversation is about paying attention to the spiritual movements both in oneself and in the other participants. Such a quality of attention is an act of reverence and hospitality for oneself and for others. Spiritual conversation creates an atmosphere of trust and welcome. It allows all parties to express themselves frankly. It allows all parties to take seriously whatever is going on within each participant.”
