ABOUT THE COURSE
There is a big connection between spirituality and psychology. Prayer could be a spiritual exercise if demonstrated in action. Most people think that spirituality is based on the number of hours spent in a Church or the hood of a monk. Spirituality has nothing to do with all that except when intrinsically evaluated within the context of decision and behavior. On the other hand, it takes into account all the minutest details of what we do, the way we do it, the intention for it etc cetera. In this sense, psychology becomes a vehicle through which spirituality becomes feasible and attainable. There can be psychology without spirituality or religion, but there can be no religion or spirituality without psychology. Besides, spirituality is not the same thing as religion per se.
