Key Concepts

Spirituality is believed to describe both the private, intimate relationship between humans and the divine, and the range of virtues that result from the relationships. Spirituality is universal. Although the specific content  of spiritual beliefs varies, all cultures have a concept of an ultimate, transcendent, sacred force.

Exercises for Boosting Spirituality

  • Cultivate sacred moments in which you set aside time to "just be" with a special/sacred object or space/environment.
  • Build in spiritual tools as a regular practice (ex: prayer, meditation, exploring nature) or as a way of approaching life (ex: giving charity, showing compassion to less fortunate individuals).
  • When experiencing trauma or a difficult situation, look for the deeper meaning and purpose of the experience.
