What’s the purpose of spiritual mentoring?
If you have taken time to observe nature, you may have realised nothing in the natural world functions alone or independent from anything else. It’s all connected—it’s all living, breathing, and function as one. Every-thing is informing and collaborating with every-thing else. We exist within a living community that is constantly sharing wisdom among its constituents, among what we label as various things or life-forms. Are humans an exception to this interconnectedness, to this ceaseless sharing of living wisdom?
In my youth I had a desire to learn martial arts. Did I achieve this by reading books, reading lessons online, or watching videos? Whilst all these forms of information may have proved useful, to an extent, what I knew to be true is that I had to find someone who had mastered the art I wanted to learn. He then mentored me in that art form, helping me to bring forth whatever propensity I had for Kung Fu, as was the case in this instance. Of course, his own Sifu was an even greater (more accomplished) master than he was, so I may have felt inclined to seek him out. Yet, in recognising that my chosen teacher’s accomplishment far exceeded my own, I took him on as a teacher. He took me on as a student.
The same would hold true if I wanted to learn the art of Yoga, or the art of carpentry, playing the violin, or traditional German baking. If I am fortunate enough to cross paths with someone who has mastered more of that art than I have, and they are available to share what they know with me, then I would be wise to jump on the opportunity, least I later lament my failure to do so.
Training the spirit
A human being is first and foremost a spirit. That is what animates a human with Life. We are living spirit, in infinite consciousness, experiencing a body and a 3D world of physicality. The mastery of the spirit, is the mastery of life. Spiritual mentoring is the mentoring, the training, the coaxing forth, of the spirit. To master the spirit is to recover the art of living from our Heart. It is to restore our sense of kinship and reciprocity (giving and receiving) with all life—both the form-side of life, and the formless-side of life.
Because all of life originates in spirit, any time we approach life, and life situations, from the perspective of spirit, such an approach is unavoidably holistic. The many forms of life can appear separate and distinct from each other, yet in spirit all is interconnected. So to address any situation, malady, issue, or problem from the spirit, is to address it holistically. That will mean taking into account the full spectrum of what the subject at hand embodies or represents. Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually—from the gross to the subtle. This may include everything from nutrition and life-style, to clearing the energetic debts you inherited from your ancestors, who failed to.

Training with Jonathan
Since the early 1990’s Jonathan has been assisting people to find greater clarity and perspective in their spiritual development, approaches to holistic healing, and natural methods of health and nutrition. His work with people as a mentor and guide has been in demand in many parts of the world, including New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Austria, England, and Panama.
Jonathan has an extensive background rooted in traditional yoga (from India, Tibet, and China), a broad range of holistic healing practices, traditional naturopathy, and numerous authentic lineage based spiritual traditions—Western, Eastern, and Indigenous. His life-time of spiritual and worldly investigation into the holistic well-being of humans and of the natural world, culminated in him remembering and teaching what he came to call the Wisdom of the Heart.
In early 2013 Jonathan entered into a life-long apprenticeship with his mentor and teacher, the legendary Andean spiritual Maestro, known as Koginka K’Amaru Xue, founder of Xolar Vibronics and the Koginka Sewaluna Foundation in North America*. Through this profound process of intensive spiritual training in the ancient solar arts of the Andes, and in the Original Living Wisdom of the Divine Mother, he has come to realise the “Wisdom of the Heart” is in fact the original spiritual inheritance of MAN, passed to every human spirit by the original Mother/Father Power that creates us.
If you wish to receive an authentic introduction into the timeless wisdom of the Divine Mother, and to have on-going specialised training in your journey of spiritual empowerment—the bringing forth of your spirit into full moment-to-moment consciousness—you are warmly encouraged to submit an enquiry into the possibility of mentoring with Jonathan.
What does mentoring involve?
The methods employed by a mentor can take many forms, in direct response to your needs and current circumstances. Often it involves the sharing of perspectives that are broader, deeper, and more life-encompassing than those perspectives you may habitually live and identify with.
Ultimately, it’s about helping you to reach into the depths of your Heart, and bring forth whatever it is that in truly alive there. If there are challenges and “wounds” standing between you and the essence of your heart, you’ll be guided and assisted in identifying and resolving those challenges, and healing the wounds. The work will not be done for you. It’s not “therapy” or “conselling,” although the results can be deeply therapeutic, and deeply healing. Instead of something being done to you, you will be assisted to do for yourself what life demands you must do, in order to bring forth full expression and consciousness of your spirit.
* Jonathan is the founder and director of the Koginka Sewaluna Foundation Aotearoa, the New Zealand branch of the Koginka Sewaluna Foundation in North America.
After an initial introductory session, participants are typically asked to commit to at least 5 sessions if they feel moved to go deeper into what is offered.
Meetings are conducted online, or in person whenever possible.
The financial reciprocity for Jonathan’s services varies, based on various factors including the personal circumstances of those seeking his assistance.
