Spirituality is a dimension of human existence that addresses the question of meaning, purpose and transcendence. It evokes feelings of inspiration, awe and reverence in humans regardless of their religious beliefs and tends to come into focus at times of emotional stress, physical (and mental) illness, loss and death.
Spirituality involves an individual’s beliefs, behaviors and experiences that promote connection with the universe and all that is. It includes a variety of practices, such as prayer, meditation, yoga, chanting and even gardening. Spirituality also encompasses beliefs about God and life after death, as well as a sense of the sacred in nature and the world around us.
A number of dimensions have been proposed in the literature as a definition of spirituality. Those include the belief in a higher form of intelligence that governs the universe, and life after death; spiritual awe, wonder and elation; and a desire to live in harmony with the world. The broader concept of spirituality can be divided into non-religious and religious spirituality. The former involves a search for the divine that is not guided by specific religion/belief system, and is considered more individualistic and open to different influences.
