How is spirituality related to health?
Some research shows a connection between your beliefs and your sense of well being. Positive beliefs, comfort, and strength gained from religion, meditation, and prayer can contribute to well being. It may even promote healing. Improving your spiritual health may not cure an illness, but it may help you feel better.
McMaster Spiritual Resources
The McMaster Multifaith Resources website is an idea that started with the Interfaith Issues Working Group of the President’s Advisory Committee on Building an Inclusive Community, also known as PACBIC. PACBIC works to advance the University’s 3rd strategic goal: “building an inclusive community with a shared purpose.”
The Interfaith Issues Working Group is mandated to:
- make recommendations on emerging interfaith issues on campus.
- establish suitable interfaith gathering and prayer spaces on campus
- consider ways to ensure that reasonably priced and diverse food choices are available to all members of the campus community, including choices for those with specific religious dietary requirements.
