What is Spirituality to You?
For the definition of spirituality, there are many opinions on what spirituality is and is not. This website and the IPM® Programs presents to you a practical and balanced approach to spiritual development. This approach comes from within you and is useful in your daily life.
You may already have a good feeling for this or you may be searching for an answer. Many people know they have their own answers. The exercise below will give you more of a feeling for your spirituality.
We give a definition next for spirituality. What’s most important for many, however, is having their own sense of what true spirituality is in their lives.
