Spirituality and Healing
Defining spirituality as the art of making compassionate connection, this article makes connections between spirit, the sacred, wholeness, and the soul. The article offers some reflections on the timeliness of what the author sees as the new direction of spirituality toward wholeness and the decline of religion in Western societies. The article discusses the “psychological turn” in spirituality, and psycho-spiritual healing using the example of anxiety; and makes some points about spirituality and the healing professions, healing professionals, and our practice.
Whakahauhia ake nei te atuatanga he huarahi herenga aroha, ko tā tēnei tuhinga he whaiherenga mai i te wairua, te tapu me te ngākau. He hokinga whakaaro ēnei kōrero ki te wā tika, e ai rā ki tā te kaituhi, ki te ara hou o te atuatanga ki tōna āhua katoa me te hekenga haere iho o ngā hāhi i ngā hāpori Hauāuru. Ka matapakihia te whakaarotanga kē-ā-hinengaro e pā ana ki te atuatanga, me te haumahu-ā-hinengaro ā-wairua whakamahia ake nei te anipā hai tauira; ka whakaarahia ake ētahi āhua pā atu ki te atuatanga me te rōpū haumahu, ngā kaihaumahu me ā tātou whakawaia.
