A Definition of Spirituality

"Spirituality as lived experience can be defined as conscious involvement in the project of life integration through self-transcendence toward the ultimate value one perceives. This general definition is broad enough to embrace both Christian and non-Christian religious spiritualities as well as secular spiritualities."

~ Sheldrake, Philip, The new Westminster dictionary of Christian spirituality (Louisville, Ky. : Westminster John Knox Press, ©2005), [1]
