Spiritual Wellness can mean many things, but it is an integral part of the overall health and well-being of individual bodies, souls, and minds.

Exploring Spiritual wellness

Whatever your definition of spirituality, the basis of spiritual wellness is being able to identify meaning in your life and to find ways to create, enhance, and foster that sense of meaning.  Some find spiritual purpose and meaning through religious faith and beliefs, some through nature, some through mindfulness, some through personal relationships. Above all, spiritual wellness helps every person to face and overcome the challenges in life and to find peace.
Resources for cultivating spiritual wellness: The Interfaith Center has created a list of resources, including practices, blog, websites, and apps that may assist with the cultivation of spiritual wellness.
