Spiritual Wellness

To be spiritually well, one integrates in a meaningful way one’s spiritual values into one’s attitudes and actions. Spirituality involves an appreciation of life’s mysteries and an inner and outer personal harmony. Being spiritually well does not require being religious; it encourages the tolerance of others’ beliefs as one develops a set of values and personal ethics.

Spiritual wellness may involve a connection with a higher power, but it may not involve religion. It is a process of transforming oneself through a search for meaning that promotes peace in oneself and the world while allowing one to take healthy, helpful action on behalf of oneself or others.
