A spirituality that is practical and experiential is derived from our own life story. Exploring the ups and downs and twisting pathways of our lives enables to see where and how our lives intersect with history, culture and the transcendent realities of our lives. Our life stories have their own innate wisdom and patterns. Whether one explores his or her story in writing, by reminiscing within, or by telling it to another, our sense of contact and connection with the rest of humanity, with nature, with the universe, with our own sense of the divine is frequently enhanced.
The process of remembering is literally a process of gathering the various pieces of our lives and finding the connections and themes that hold them together.
