Spirituality

There is a lot of myths or misunderstandings about the word Spirituality and what it means.


Firstly, its not a religious concept for some, religion may play a part in their spirituality, but not for others.


Secondly, its nothing to do with ghosts or spirits, or anything supernatural!


The most common definition of the word spirituality is basically “the deepest values and meanings by which people live.”


So with that in mind we created a course that explores each of our personal values and what means the most to us in life.


We then look at how these things can be impacted (or taken away from us) through life illnesses or difficult life events and by understanding this, we become more able to repair or take back those aspects of our lives, and begin celebrating ourselves as unique individuals.
