– What is the connection, the relationship between spirituality and mental health?
There is a connection between spirituality and purpose. Purpose comes in when you believe in something bigger than ourself. People often ask me how did you find your purpose? I answer it found me. When we are spiritual it really lets us get rid of that ego. It opens us to mindfulness, being in the present, empathetic thinking, compassion, forgiveness, in my situation I had to go through forgiveness what I have gone through... in spirituality there is meaning in what we are going through, everything happens for a reason... Everybody has their own type of spirituality, their own type of praying, or meditation, their own type of conversation with their higher being. When I look at spirituality from a mental health perspective, I look at it as a holistic way of seeing the mind, body, soul, and spirit connection. I call it the puzzle, each one of them affects the other if some part is missing if people have mental health issues and they do not have that holistic view of self when they do not live as an authentic self but rather a limitation self, ... so it's when we let go of the ego and let in the mind, body, soul, and spirit connection, then we put the puzzle together.
The interview went in many interesting directions related to mental health and spirituality, and definitely brought out the best of Kristin's deep understanding of the topic.
