Four Spiritualities: Are we all spiritual, even if we don’t use the word ‘spiritual?’
100 years of psychological and religious study have led many researchers to the conclusion that the human search for meaning (spirituality?) is expressed in four major ways, based on four major personality temperaments.
UUA President Peter Morales has called us to create an expansive and inclusive faith, a “big tent with no borders.” We usually think of inclusion and diversity in terms of race, gender identity, religious belief, or sexual orientation. What if our inherent personalities and spiritualities separate us more than race, sexual orientation, or belief? What if the real challenge facing us is to overcome our personality and spirituality differences? Perhaps embracing the four spiritualities will enable us to create the “big tent” that includes everyone, even those of us who might not fit into someone else’s definition of “spiritual.”
