Spirituality in the 21st Century : Explorations

"The 10 chapters in this book demonstrate demonstrate contemporary explorations into the nature of Spirituality Studies being conducted across a variety of academic and applied fields around the world. The authors explore definitions of spirituality in the human search for meaning, comfort, healing, and belonging, as well as the borders of experience that must be transcended, wherever one belongs, traversing various paths to get reach that destination. As such, this interdisciplinary volume presents readers with various takes on the universal experience of humans, being, as they travel (in Fra Diavolo's words) through unknown country, home."--Page 4 of cover
