Spirit in Practice articulates eight spheres in which one can develop their spiritual life.You can think of the eight spheres model as a spiritual analogue of the USDA’s “food pyramid.” To be well balanced in nutrients, you must eat from all of the different food groups in the food pyramid, yet not every meal need include food from every group. Similarly, engagement with each of the eight spheres over time can lead to a well-balanced spiritual life. To continue with the “food pyramid” analogy, our Unitarian Universalist tradition will not tell you specifically what foods you should eat, but the collective wisdom of the world’s religions and the insights of modern psychology do point to a general outline of a “healthy diet” for spiritual well-being.
