In this article, I want to clarify the difference between interspirituality and superstition. There is a reason for doing this. Far too many people equate the terms spirituality and superstition, subsequently dismissing both. I can’t really blame them. I was raised in the New Age movement and know that many of the participants failed to make a clear distinction. They embraced superstitious practices and told everyone they were spiritual. It took me a while to separate the two in my mind.
Before I go any further, let me define the terms so that we are on the same page.
Interspirituality: The exploration of the immaterial or sentient parts of our being using methods and ideas that are shared by and/or exist between the world’s wisdom traditions.*
