Spiritual Growth

Spiritual growth refers to the process of developing one’s sense of connection to and understanding of one’s own spirit and/or a more universal source of spiritual energy. Some traditions describe methods to follow with specific stages or thresholds that are reached in progression toward an ultimate spiritual state, often called enlightenment.
