Welcome to the Spirituality Channel at Patheos! Spirituality Itself is a group blog where the content and contributors are as eclectic as the channel itself.

In his seminal work The Mystic Heart: Discovering a Universal Spirituality in the World’s Religions, Wayne Teasdale intimated that, because mystical spirituality is the origin of all the world religions, the real religion of humankind can be said to be spirituality itself. Brother Wayne, who was a Catholic monk who lived as a Christian sannyasi according to the Hindu code of renunciation, didn’t reject the world’s rich diversity of religious expression, rather he wanted to make available to everyone all the forms the spiritual journey assumes. That’s exactly what this blog aims to do.

You can follow our regular Spirituality Itself bloggers and, in the spirit of diversity and inclusion, meet new bloggers who post occasionally here. We welcome guest posts. Send your proposal to me at ksheehanroach@patheos.com.
