Guidance On Our Journeys – Sponsorship
Part of Hazelden Classics for Continuing Care Series
Author: Edward C. Sellner, PhD
Sponsorship is a special relationship between two recovering people. This pamphlet describes suggested qualities we should look for in a sponsor and offers practical guidelines for enhancing the relationship.
Excerpt from the Introduction:
“The ancient Irish had a word for someone who acts as a friendly guide to another human being: anmchara. The word is Gaelic for “friend of the soul” or “soul friend,” a friend of all those dimensions which make us human. This booklet is written for all recovering people who recognize the need for a sponsor, or for those who have perhaps acted as a sponsor for years. It does not attempt to cover the topic of sponsorship thoroughly, but only to share some insights that may help clarify the importance and value of that relationship.”
