Helen on Unitarianism........
"If you ask what Unitarianism is, you may get many different answers from different people, that is the beauty of it I think, the religious freedom. My view is that we are spiritual beings, and whilst on this earth, we can focus upon cultivating greater wisdom and compassion for the benefit of ourselves and each other. At one time or another, we all face challenges, whether at work, home, in relationships, through loss, or illness. A practical spirituality may help us to manage the situations we face in our lives and understanding ourselves better may enhance our experiences in life. The connection between spirituality and psychology is an area of special interest to me. The depths of most world religions offer this message, as do spiritual teachers in more recent times. Some of the latter which I find especially helpful are, for example, Ram Dass and Eckhart Tolle.
