The benefits of spiritual well-being are numerous and include a deep sense of inner peace, an increase in hope, compassionate relationships, a reduction in stress, anxiety, and compassion fatigue. When employees are spiritually healthy there is more clarity when faced with making everyday choices and taking actions that are more consistent with our beliefs and values. This course will provide practical tips for caring for your mind and spirit and creating an organizational culture that promotes spiritual wellness.
