Faith and Spirituality in the Face of Loss

[1]When someone we love dies, it is inevitable that questions of faith and spirituality arise. For some faith is challenged, for some it is dashed, for some it is a comfort, and for some it is a new exploration.

I believe we are all spiritual beings, although formal religious belief may not be a part of our life. Regardless, tending to the spiritual side is a part of the healing process, and I have found these following things helpful in supporting the spiritual side of the grief journey.

Faith and/or spirituality are a part of life and contribute to our mental health and ability to survive hardship. However spirituality takes form in your beliefs, embrace it for yourself, and nurture it in others, as they seek peace and comfort at such critical times in life.
