The story is told of a South American tribe that
went on a long march, day after day, when all
of a sudden they would stop walking, sit down
to rest for awhile, and then make camp for a couple
of days before going any farther.
They explained that they needed the time of rest so that their souls could catch up with them.
Whatever gives meaning to your life.

Spirituality is the practice of staying consciously connected with what makes us alive, with ourselves, and with one another and the great other.
- Robin Carnes and Sally Craig
Spirituality is something you have on the inside that will get you where you want to go on the outside. Sean, age 8
Spirituality is the diverse ways in which individuals answer their longings to be connected with the largeness of life – a longing that animates love and work. Parker Palmer
