That said, what does spirituality have to do with psychotherapy? After all, meditation has a place in many of the world's religions but it is not necessarily a religious practice.
The same seems true of spirituality as an essential aspect of this human experience. It seems to me that either we have faith, or we're still looking for it.
And that doesn't necessarily mean religion, although it can mean religion.
My up-bringing and personal identification are both Jewish. Mostly secular and cultural, with a fair amount of knowledge from 12 years of Hebrew School, little to know Hebrew language competence (I seem to be quite incompetent at learning languages), and just a little bit of current practice.
But over three decades of participating in psychotherapy with my clients has taught me there are innumerable ways that a sense of something larger than ourselves figures into how we feel - about ourselves, about our relationships, even about getting up in the morning. And I am always open to dicussing faith (or the seeming lack of it) when this appears to be a critical component of my clients' struggles. Christianity, Catholicism, Buddhism, Islam, Religious Science, Judaism - they all have things to teach us and I am open to learning and sharing any of it with my clients.
