    I think getting in touch with your own spirituality helps with a better understanding of life. It completes and assist with your person growth. It Enlightens you on your quest for peace and fulfillment. Spirituality is a large part of your inner being, don’t confuse this with religion though.
    I really like your site,it is done well but I just noticed this personal void by not considering a person’s inner spirituality with the steps. It has added lots to my life and goes hand and hand with your steps. I consider your final mystical step as a completion or beautiful transition period. Thank you for sharing your wonderful site…

      Hi Candie,
      many thanks for your comment.

      In the context of the Centered Life Model, spirituality is a considered as a value. The model must be open by definition. Open means that it is not up to the model to define a specific set of values: the model simply states that it is essential for people to identify their set of values making a connection with their core self. The model gives the direction, each person will then find his/her path.

      However, spirituality is clearly one of the main direction that can be taken (but not the only one); indeed, as soon as the meditation practice achieves an advanced stage (see this post on Meditation), spirituality is intrinsically in the path.

      I will write a specific post soon to clarify the concept of open model and why it is so important in this context.

      Dimitri
