The website Spiritual Study is devoted primarily to the study of spirituality as such; secondarily there is space for particular spiritualities as well. As such, Spiritual Study includes all spiritualities and people, believers and non-believers. Spiritual Study is study of spirituality involving not only our mind and intelligence, but our whole life, emotions, body, experiences: it is cultivation of a spiritual experience, indirect connections, awareness of our self. This website is a sharing place, aimed to be the highest quality comprehensive portal to spirituality, with space for friendship and inexpert people as well; you can use any part of it, and especially the course, as an instrument for meditation and nourishment.
Here you can find:
- a complete Course of Spirituality for all levels, from absolutely beginners with no ideas about spirituality to the highest, most advanced, levels
- an online discussion forum where you can express and share yourself, your thoughts, questions, experience; you can also use the forum to get or give, depending on your competence or needs, counselling and help, either publicly or privately
- a blog with videos, progressively integrated in the Course of Spirituality
- a directory of best resources for your research and experience about spirituality.

You can see in this video an example of what I am talking about:
