Fetzer 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions Chicago

What Does Spirituality Mean to Us? Trends in Spiritual Identification, Behavior, and Resiliency

Session Description:

As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and new challenges emerge, we recognize that spirituality has been more critical than ever to get us through these difficult times. Fresh data from the Fetzer Institute’s innovative study “What Does Spirituality Mean to Us?” reminds us that our spiritual lives connect us to our values, each other, and something greater than ourselves. Join Institute staff and research advisors for this insightful session that explores the latest trends in the understanding, practices, and benefits of spirituality and how our spiritual lives changed as a result of the Pandemic. Reflecting on cutting-edge methods such as artificial intelligence and visual sociology, presenters also share the ways religion and spirituality offer personal, social, and transcendent experiences and connections. Join us for an interactive and experiential session with opportunities to engage in activities and methods used in the study as well as small group discussion and Q&A.
