How can I explore my spiritual self?

David Kuhl
Hospice & Palliative Medicine
Ways of exploring this important part of who you are can happen in discussions over meaningful topics; in self-reflection through journal writing; in therapy; in understanding yourself by reading about myths, wisdom literature and world religions; in religious traditions; and in contemplative practices. If you prefer to walk while you contemplate, you might find that walking a labyrinth is effective. To do so is to purposefully walk a metaphor of your life’s journey. It symbolizes a walk to your inner being -- and back again. It is not intended to confuse you; neither is it a puzzle to be solved. The purpose of a labyrinth is to demonstrate that the way into its center is actually also the way out from its center. It will broaden your sense of who you are.
