Spirituality is a broad concept of belief in something beyond oneself. It may involve religious traditions centered on belief in a higher power, but it can also involve a holistic belief in an individual connection with others and with the world as a whole. An example of spirituality is praying every day. People can describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply as a deep sense of vivacity and interconnectedness.
This implies a tendency to use spirituality as a way to cope with or avoid problems, emotions or conflicts. This is because there is a connection between emotional and spiritual well-being that are influenced and overlapped, as are all aspects of well-being. This is due to the complexity of the subject, since spirituality has many dimensions and it is difficult to specify a particular concept. For instance, some people may be more likely to have spiritual experiences in churches or other religious temples, while others may have these feelings when they enjoy nature. These spiritual practices can be particularly important for groups of people who have been subjected to the effects of colonialism.
Although all religions emphasize spiritualism as part of faith, you can be “spiritual” without being religious or a member of an organized religion. Suffering is the starting door to spirituality for many people (usually in the form of anxiety, pain, or fear). In the context of work, spirituality has been defined as “a framework of organizational values evidenced in culture that promotes employees' experience of transcendence throughout the work process, facilitating their sense of being connected with others in a way that provides feelings of fulfillment and joy”.Exploring your spiritual side can help improve your well-being, regardless if you are rediscovering a forgotten spiritual path, reinforcing your commitment to an already well-established one, or seeking a new source of spiritual satisfaction. It also relates to the process of developing beliefs around the meaning of life and connection with others, without established spiritual values.
There are many different types of spirituality, ranging from religious traditions to more secular approaches. However it is defined, spirituality is considered of central importance in the search for meaning and purpose in one's life. Spirituality in the workplace is about individuals and organizations seeing work as a spiritual path, as an opportunity to grow and contribute to society in a meaningful way. It is important to remember that there are many other spiritual traditions that exist around the world, including traditional African and indigenous spiritual practices.
