"A new spirituality is a hybridization of traditions of the past, beliefs and practices of the present, and innovative ideas surrounding a new scientific synthesis and cosmology, the widening cultural democratization of the sacred, and a quest for the sacred within the secular. The new spirituality is profoundly this-worldly. It reveres the grandeur of nature in an unfolding universe. It celebrates embodied spirituality, reflects the subjective turn of modernity and postmodernity; emphasizes feelings, experience and the quest for human authenticity; accentuates human fulfillment in this world; reveres and affirms the cosmos and our belonging to it, and recognizes the infusion of nature and matter with spirit, consciousness, or life force."
