Accompaniment, Community and Nature: Overcoming Isolation, Marginalisation and Alienation Through Meaningful Connection [9781785925474]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Has the art of accompaniment been lost in Western culture? Could non-judgemental accompaniment be the answer to rising levels of isolation and loneliness? Could spending time with others from different or marginalised 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 marginalised from society. It emphasises 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 Travellers - providing a varied, insightful and heart-warming view on the benefits of accompaniment.


AUTHOR: Jonathan Herbert is ordained in the Church and currently a member of Hilfield Friary in Dorset, where he takes a role in leading the community, which welcomes people from many different walks of life to stay. He is also C of E chaplain to Gypsies and Travellers in Dorset and Wiltshire. He has lived and worked in many communities across England, Palestine and Africa.
