This week on The Broad Perspective we welcome:
Anna Gatmon, PhD
Living a Spiritual Life in a Material World
Four Keys to Fulfillment and Balance
“People don’t necessarily want to give up material comforts in order to pursue the promise of spiritual fulfillment. At the same time, we all have an intrinsic need to lead meaningful, purposeful lives that contribute to a better world. Happiness lies in finding the spiritual value in our material desires and bringing our inner longings to physical realization” -Anna Gatmon, PhD

When asked to explain spirituality in simple terms, Dr. Gatmon replied:
“You’re flying in a plane…suddenly there is turbulence and everything is shaking, with the plane bouncing up and down….to get out of turbulent air, the pilots often climb to a higher altitude, where the atmosphere is calm…That is what spirituality is all about – rising to a higher altitude of emotional and mental stability, where there is no turbulence and you can sail over the disturbances of daily life with greater ease.”
