Dr Christina Pulchalski who leads the Institute for Spirituality and Health in Washington has described spirituality as:
"Spirituality is the aspect of humanity that refers to the way individuals seek and express meaning and purpose and the way they experience their connectedness to the moment, to self, to others, to nature, and to the significant or sacred."
With this in mind, a spiritual experience takes shape in many ways. One could experience spirituality in a community action group, or feel moved and inspired by creativity. One may feel alive in the ocean or amongst bush or mountain treks. A person could be rejuvenated and refreshed by playing or listening to music. A person may experience spirituality from an innate knowing or sense of how others are feeling.
