The Spiritual is not the Religious

Yet the spiritual is inclusive. It is the deepest sense of belonging and participation...
One might say that the spiritual is that realm of human experience which religion attempts to connect us to through dogma and practice. Sometimes it succeeds and sometimes it fails. Religion is a bridge to the spiritual, but the spiritual lies beyond religion.”
Dr. Rachel Remen's books, Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather's Blessings, are two of my favorite books. She has been a medical professional for several decades, advocating mind/body holistic health techniques in treating disease. She founded the Institute for the Study of Health and Illness at Commonweal (ISHI.) She is a wonderful, love centered teacher and writer, and is one of the enlightened elders of our world today.
