    What is spirituality?

    Spirituality is a practice cultivated and created by the individual. Generally speaking, spirituality is the belief that there is something greater than ourselves guiding and supporting us throughout our lives. Spirituality is unique to each and every person and may look different based on the beliefs of the individual. I approach this type of healing with openness and curiosity of what resonates deeply with the person and explore and expand these constructs with loving-kindness.

    How is spirituality different than religion?

    If spirituality is a practice created by the individual, a group or organization of people forms a religion. Religion is typically structured in a hierarchical manner that consists of a particular set of beliefs and practices of which to follow. Spirituality is not better than religion, nor is religion better than spirituality; instead it is a preference, based on the wants and needs of the individual.
