What is spiritual Therapy?
Spiritual wellness is an important part of overall mental health and quality of life. Although for some part of spirituality is connected to religion, spirituality looks different to different people. In general, spirituality is a sense of connection to something greater than oneself.
Mental wellness is wholistic, this means that all aspects of your health play an important role in your mental well being. Your physical health, emotional health and spiritual health all form the basis of your mental well being.
