Spirituality or searching for the intangible
One of the pillars that are basic to a person is the yearning for spirituality. The real growth implies wonder about the mystery of existence, search for answer to the question of the beyond, dive into the unfathomable fate of being search or open increasingly felt in every cell own vibration of the universe, in a kind of fusion with nothing.
Spirituality is the intangible oriented search to restore the link between the human being and be Global (the universe, life, God). But the recognition that spirituality does not mean religion, but that is a vital dimension more, represents an important step forward and is a sign that humanity is entering a new paradigm. They are agnostics, even atheists, agree that there is a kind of restlessness and possibility of experience which is not reducible to the desire for knowledge - scientific curiosity - or the metaphysical bet - religion and philosophy - and even altruistic solidarity impulse, despite being linked to this. At the same time, increasingly more religious people of different traditions, sympathize with the new design and provide valuable nuances to it.
In the Area of spirituality of the Gestalt Institute proposed exploring spirituality from the perspective of the new paradigm and its relationship with human nature. And they addressed it from several disciplines, from neuroscience to interfaith through ethics, philosophy, quantum physics, evolutionary vision and science, among others.
