FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Sensible Spirituality is the conscious integration of a person’s principles,
values, and practices with their physical, mental, and emotional life.
What do you mean by Sensible Spirituality?
Sensible Spirituality means practicing one’s preferred spirituality in a way that produces growing freedom, usefulness and productivity, as well as personal fulfillment, purpose, and happiness. Sensible Spirituality recognizes the sacredness of each person, embracing what is good and true in their lives, and guides them through the energizing process of defining their core values and principles. Sensible Spirituality helps individuals and organizations connect inner purpose with outer goals.
Is there anything religious about Sensible Spirituality?
Spirituality is not always religious. Religion is not always spiritual. Religion (re- again + ligare- to bind together) desires to bring people into community. Sensible Spirituality honors this purpose and works with people to help them discern where they will thrive.
How do you address differing belief systems or religions?
Beliefs can divide; values always connect. By understanding various religious and cultural traditions, we are conscious of a diversity of perspectives. With that in mind, we work with universal, shared values that cut across religious traditions, to build strategies for improved collaboration and productivity.

To this end, we offer a Spiritual Development Process (assessment), counseling, mentoring and navigation for management and staff.
How are you any different from other consultants and coaches?
As spiritual care consultants and providers, we place spirituality at the center of our work, rather than seeing it as a component. We are not therapists, nor do we act in place of professional religious ministers. We take a holistic health vs. traditional pathologic approach, observing the unified system that contributes to organizational and personal health. This is Sensible Spirituality. We work to unify body (communication and boundaries), mind (values and assessment), and spirit (mission, vision, and leadership) and so identify and support the soul of the person or organization.
Why should we hire Sensible Spirituality Associates?
If you want to flourish, individually and corporately, we bring decades of experience and insight as teachers of spiritual living and working. We work with our clients to achieve results.
How much does it cost?
