Abstract

Mentoring and life coaching are relationship-based helping and guiding processes. When these processes foster a spiritual journey in response to someone's searching, clients uncover a higher order of living that enables them to flourish. This spiritual journey is a more sustainable journey in the long term; this journey is not defined by, or reliant on, destination or attainment only. In this paper we explore how a life-direction or noble purpose, drawn from a spiritual framework and integrated into all areas of one's life, orients human existence to one of meaning and significance beyond oneself.
