Spirituality is ultimately, to borrow from Ronald Rolheiser, about what we do with the fire inside us, how we channel the life-pulse that drives each of us.
Put another way, spirituality is about our deepest passions, desires and beliefs and how we put those into practice in our lives. Spirituality gives us a sense of who we are, where we came from, where we are going and what sense there is in all of this.
Viewed through this lens, spirituality is for everyone because it engages us with life's big questions about identity, meaning, purpose and place in the world.
Students at NMC will be challenged to think about these ultimate questions, not in an effort to tell them what to think, but to reflect and grow in their own understanding, beliefs, values and vocation - that is, a student's sense of purpose or calling as a healthcare professional.
