What is Spiritual Well-Being?

Spiritual well-being is a personal matter involving values and believes that provide a purpose in our lives. While different individuals may have different views of what spiritualism is, it is generally considered to be the search for meaning and purpose in human existence, leading one to strive for a state of harmony with oneself and others while working to balance inner needs with the rest of the world. Everyone’s optimal well-being will be different, depending on individual needs, experiences, personality, and one’s circumstances. As we make our way through life, different aspects or dimensions will fall in and out of balance - it’s our job to try and maintain as much of a balance as possible!
