Spirituality: Spirituality is a term commonly used in contrast to religion to refer to an essential quality that transcends any particular tradition or doctrine and is inherent in all human beings (and perhaps non-human beings as well). It describes the aspects of our existence that give us a sense of meaning, connection, and openness. The word “spirituality” is derived from a root that means “breath” or “wind,” and is thus associated with the subtle, changeable, tangible-yet-immaterial breathing of life itself: within, among, and beyond us.
