Spiritual balance involves searching to create a personal sense of life's meaning, purpose, and direction through everyday experiences.

Each person expresses their spirituality differently depending on their values, ethics, morals, and beliefs.

  • Do I make time for relaxation in my day?
  • Do I make time for meditation and/or prayer?
  • Do my values guide my decisions and actions?
  • Am I accepting of the views of others?

The University of Akron Department of Philosophy
"In a philosophy class we don’t just memorize facts or study famous theories, but rather learn to think critically by examining our own beliefs and assumptions. Philosophy asks the big questions: who and what are we, why are we here, is there a god, what makes life meaningful, what is the difference between right and wrong? Even if we can’t find definite answers to all these questions, the search itself is rewarding."
