Think of spirituality as a mountain so massive you can never reach the summit. Sometimes you’re on a well-worn path, sometimes you’re off wandering around trying to figure out a way forward. There are defining characteristics, the “geography,” of your place on the mountain, which are your personal spiritual and religious values. These values form a personal framework by which you see and experience the world and make meaning of your life and the universe. In this framework questions of life and death, love, choice, and free will can be explored.
We see from where we are; we understand from where we’ve been. Exploring your Spiritual Geography is like finding a “You are Here” sign on a trail map on your personal spiritual mountain. By exploring your personal spiritual terrain you can find how you use our spirituality to help make decisions more aligned with who you are, and find ways to feed your soul and deepen your connection to the divine.
We can explore our personal Spiritual Geography by examining which spiritual and religious values resonate with us and which ones we reject. What matters isn't merely what we believe, but also what we don't believe. Our Spiritual Geography includes where we are, the direction we want to head, and the paths from which we turn away.
Our premiere product is the Spiritual Geography Card Deck©, a values card sort exercise you do to prioritize the values that are most and least meaningful to you. Whether you consider yourself religious, spiritual but not religious, agnostic, atheist, or any combination thereof, the Spiritual Geography Card Deck© will help you explore your own spiritual and religious values, the “spiritual geography” in which you live.
"The Spiritual Geography card deck was helpful in identifying what is spiritually important to me and is something all people should do at least once a year.” – D.L., Silver Spring, MD
