Default Re: Defining Spirituality - A Gestalt therapy perspective

Ray,

You open up a psychological bags of worms regarding spirituality. So what does spirituality mean to you? There are millions of definitions. Spirituality differs from "having religion," or "knowing God." Most therapists wouldn't pray if their clients asked them to because that is reserved for Pastoral Counselors as i have read and have been told. Most therapists are secular in their psychological thinking. Even most so called christian therapists do not believe in spiritual tenets. Most therapists do not believe anything spiritual but their theory that will "cure" their clients. So why pray? I think bringing in the Spirituality card is a comfy cover to offer their clients, but few hardly believe Spirituality works.
