Spirituality & Practice

Resources for Spiritual Journeys

Spirituality & Practice is a multifaith website providing resources for spiritual journeys for people of all religions and spiritual paths.

Our Values

Spirituality and practice are the two places where all the world’s religions and spiritual paths come together. While respecting the differences among traditions, we celebrate what they share in common. We affirm interconnectedness and oneness as the true nature of reality. We acknowledge the active presence of Spirit in all aspects of everyday life.

We believe in the power and potential of the Internet to create, support, and sustain individual and group spiritual practice. We focus upon personal and cultural resources that are expressive of the quest for meaning and purpose, wholeness and healing, commitment and community, contemplation and social activism.

Our Vision

We envision a global circle of people vitally engaged with the wisdom and practices of the spiritual traditions, who are thereby equipped to live deeper and fuller lives and to serve their communities and the wider world.

Our Mission

Spirituality & Practice serves people of all the world’s religions and spiritual paths and those with no tradition through the website. Our mission is:

• to sustain and expand a content-rich website that creates, compiles, and curates a multifaith
and interspiritual wisdom archive;

• to demonstrate spiritual literacy, the ability to recognize the spiritual dimensions of life written
in the texts of our experiences;

• to provide authenticated and thoroughly researched and sourced resources for spiritual journeys;

• to offer a positive and spiritually progressive perspective on contemporary media,
particularly books and films;

• to encourage everyday spiritual practice as an integral part of individual and community life;

• to promote the use of spiritual practices to enhance the quality of life for individuals
during times of challenge and transition;

• to facilitate new types of spiritual communities and conversations using the technology
and worldwide reach of the Internet;

• to develop new lifelong learning opportunities around spiritual practices, character qualities,
and civic virtues, including e-courses, online retreats, and practice circles;

• to partner with and support spiritual teachers and organizations to reach learners outside the
current models of local congregations, weekend workshops, conferences, and university programs.

• to foster multifaith understanding in our increasingly pluralistic world.
