participatory spirituality

Participatory spirituality is an approach to spirituality that takes spirituality serious and does not reduce spiritual experiences to illusions or culturally conditioned phenomena. At the same time, participatory spirituality is not wedded to any specific religious dogma; indeed, the version espoused here is one that puts emphasis on all genuine spirituality being beyond any dogma or tradition. It suggests that spiritual phenomena are participatory in the sense that they can emerge from the interaction of all human attributes and a nondetermined spiritual power or creative dynamism of life. Thus, spiritual phenomena come into existence out of a process of participatory co-creation between human multidimensional cognition and the generative force of life and the spirit.
