Integrating Spirituality, Healthcare, Education, Citizenship



The Foundation for Holistic Spirituality is a campaigning and educational body working in the emerging culture where spirituality, education, healthcare and citizenship converge. Through:

• Listing and Networking

• Building Community

• Enabling Representation

• Educational Resources 


Our Projects

UK Census 2011, Map and Community
Our primary work at the moment is to map and list holistic spiritual activities in the United Kingdom. We need a more informed and accurate picture. This is the purpose of the Holistic Map website.

We have also just completed a campaign asking people to put HOLISTIC in the Census 2011 religion box. more

At the same time we want to enable networking and community-building. We are looking to enable this through online social networking and through Local Hubs. more

Representation and Citizenship
In order to engage as citizens, the holistic approach to contemporary spirituality needs to have some kind of representative structure, which can be recognised by public decision-making and consultative bodies. Holistic Spiritual Alliance is a move in that direction and we will be enabling its establishment over the coming two years. more

Education and Research
It is important that resources are developed which clearly explore and educate in this emerging field. We are at the very beginning of developing these resources. more

We have however already completed a major piece of work, WorldWatch, which is an accessible online digest of all international conflicts in which faith and religion play a part. more

We are also the enabler and certificating body for the Spiritual Companions project. more

What You Can Do

We are at a crucial stage of our development. After two years research and development, we now need to expand our team with some key partners and volunteers. more

 

 

Enabling a holistic approach to contemporary spirituality.
Working together we can make spirituality a natural part of everyday life — for everyone.



Our Definitions

As best we can, we have developed these definitions to be appropriate for the contemporary context.

'Spirituality'
The natural human connection with the wonder and energy of nature, cosmos and all existence;
and the instinct to explore and understand its meaning.

'Holistic'
Everything is connected. You can understand a whole only by looking at its parts. You can understand a part only by looking at its whole. Celebrate diversity and connection.
