We all have physical, emotional & spiritual needs, regardless of whether religious faith is a part of someone’s life.

Numerous studies conducted over the past 50 years show the benefits to one’s sense of health (physical) and well-being (emotional) when spiritual needs are addressed (tended).

What are Spiritual Needs?

We all are asked “big” questions about life. These questions can include:

  • Who am I?
  • For what purpose was I born?
  • Why is this happening? Why is it happening to me?
  • What does it all mean? How do I make sense of this?
  • What gives me comfort and hope?
  • What am I grateful for?
  • What do I trust? Who do I trust?
  • Who is my “beloved community”—those who love me and is loved by me, no matter what?
  • What or who—beyond myself—do I believe is important in my life?
  • How do I move forward?

All of these questions relate to spiritual needs, and are usually – frequently prompted by crisis (whether physical or emotional) and lives have been turned upside down.

Tending to our spiritual needs is a part of returning to our sense of balance and overall wellness in body, mind and spirit. Tending to our spiritual needs gives us strength; we are better able to cope; we find meaning; we are comforted and find a sense of peace in a time of crisis.

How Do I Begin?

Find someone to talk to, someone who can listen with empathy and support as the “big” questions are sorted out. We journey inward and gain self-awareness, while learning to listen to and trust our own inner wisdom. Within a few visits, great things can be accomplished.  (email/phone)
