Wellbeing Online

Spiritual

The basis of Spiritual Wellbeing is finding meaning and purpose to our life and our place in the greater universe. Referring to the purpose we discover for ourselves and the unique way that we have chosen to harmonize with the world around us can help us choose actions that are consistent with our personal beliefs and values. Reconciling our actions with our beliefs can be central to the development of spiritual wellbeing, among many other facets of our life.

Spiritual wellbeing can have a dramatic impact on various realms of wellbeing, particularly with respect to finding overall peace, harmony, and happiness with our life and surroundings. Becoming aware of how spirituality weaves into your life can be helpful in developing a integrated, holistic, and balanced self.

What is Spirituality?

Spirituality can be participation in a religious organization or a non-religious experience that involves getting in touch with your self.
Some examples are:

  • yoga
  • meditation
  • quiet reflection
  • art
  • activism

You may ask yourself, why are we here, is there something beyond the physical world that we can see? The brain naturally looks for patterns in sensory information as it processes the experiences. Our conscious selves tend to look for meaning in those patterns.

Expressing Yourself Through Art Is One Way to Explore Spirituality. 
Tune in to the webinar above with poet Rachel Morgan for a unique twist on making sense of the world through writing.
