Incarnational Spirituality in Translation  new!

   Incarnational Spirituality embraces the understanding that we have a spiritual presence and inner resources that emerge from the very act of incarnation itself, not in spite of it or from some place beyond it.  Incarnational Spirituality sees the world as inherently a spiritual domain with roots in the sacred–in the ground of all being–as fully developed and accessible as the spiritual roots we may find in any non-physical realm of being.

We have not come from some spiritual domain to the earth.  Rather, we have enlarged the spiritual domains in which we live and function to include the one we call the earth.  We have not left spirit or the sacred; we have enlarged our repertoire of how we can experience and express our spirituality and our sacredness. – David Spangler
