A Longitudinal Study of Spiritual Engagement, Self-transcendence, and Human Flourishing
The Spiritual engagement Project is a longitudinal study that explores the relationship between people’s engagement in spiritual practices and communities, and their health and well-being. Building on previous work, we are now examining in detail how deep, dramatic, and permanent shifts in people’s worldview can result from engagement in transformative spiritual practices.
