Across world religions and throughout the history of human experience with the Divine, we find certain universally recognized strategies to nourishing spirituality. While each person’s experience is unique, there are ways of approaching life that maximize our availability to spiritual presence. In this episode of our mental health and addiction recovery podcast, Jackie Pack talks about some of the things we can do to increase our spiritual practice and to connect to something Higher around us. Perhaps the real challenge in life is learning to love others, ourselves, and accept there are forces in the universe more powerful than the self in control.
