From bookstores to summer camps to medical conferences, the word spirituality is on many people's lips. Understanding what it is and how it affects our lives has become a major quest for men and women of all backgrounds. As Harvey Cox, noted Harvard theologian, says in this week's News & Trends, "The change in the mental climate is something quite remarkable."

Because of this, we thought it would be helpful to explore not only some definitions of what spirituality is, but also what it does. One author tells about her experience of white water kayaking and the relation she saw to spiritual progress. Another explains how peace from painful memories can be gained. For one man and his family, gratitude as a spiritual quality is found crucial to their obtaining a new home. And when a wife felt at odds with her husband's perfectionism around the house, a deeper spiritual love proved to be the answer.
