Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in a spiritual practice kit?
Included in each full kit is an interactive journal with stories, poems, scripture, reflection questions and invitations into creative practice. Each kit contains a small card with a scripture verse to reflect on throughout the season as well as an art print and poem. Also included are the unique supplies needed to engage in the practices. For example, the Beloved kit contains the following supplies: candle, glue stick, waterproof pen, collage images, card stock, small mirror, gold paint, paintbrush, art print, tea bag, and heart stone.
How is the mini kit different from the full kit?
A full kit is designed to take you through an entire season of spiritual practice and has 4 full movements, each with 5 to 6 invitations into spiritual reflection and practice. A mini kit is just a taste of Field Guides for the Way, offering 5 invitations total to take you through one week or perhaps one full day of spiritual reflection and practice.
Can I send a kit as a gift?
Absolutely! Be sure to put the recipient’s name and address as the shipping address if you’d like it sent directly. Because our full kits ship quarterly, we also have an gift postcard we can send ahead, either to you or to the recipient, so they know a gift is on the way. Just be sure to note where we should send the postcard when you order. We’ll include your name, the kit they’ll be receiving, and the approximate delivery date on the postcard.
Are there options for bulk orders?
Participating in Field Guides for the Way as a community is a wonderful way to deepen the journey. Please contact us about ordering in bulk. Additionally, if you are interested in customized content to better fit your community's needs, we would love to talk to you.
Are there scholarships available?
Yes! Through the generosity of friends and family who believe in this good work, we have a small scholarship fund available for those who would like to participate in Field Guides for the Way and need a little help with the cost. If this applies to you, please email us to let us know your interest. (If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund, you can contribute on our contact page.)
How are these different from other faith-based subscription services?
Field Guides for the Way is unique in our focus on spiritual practice. Each carefully curated kit is designed to deepen you into your own journey with God through guided practice. Rather than offering you more information to fill your head or stuff to fill your home, each spiritual practice kit offers you a rich experience of creative, contemplative practice that will be as unique as you are. Each artisanal kit has been carefully crafted and is created from our love, produced in small batches, and assembled in our homes by hand.
How are the kits made?
The content of each kit is curated carefully by Kristen and Stephanie, who weave their own stories and poems with beautiful content from other voices. Our interactive journals are printed locally in the Bay Area and assembled by hand.
