Decades of research suggest that spirituality — that is, the drive to seek positive connections to something bigger than yourself — is an innate part of the human experience. 

When we reach a certain age, we begin asking questions not only about our meaning and purpose, but the meaning of purpose, says psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller. 

One organization working to better understand spirituality and why we’re drawn to it is the Fetzer Institute, which has spent decades conducting studies to support educational programs that nurture the spiritual aspect of the self. 

In light of rising rates of mental health conditions in the U.S. and beyond, spirituality may be the key to building more resilient minds.
