Primary and Secondary Spiritual Practice

Primary spiritual practice is whatever one does just to be doing it -- for its own sake -- without thinking about achieving anything or whether it's being done "right."

Primary Spiritual Practice: This can be almost any activity. Primary Spiritual Practices vary widely from person to person. Nature hiking, cooking, gardening, music playing are the primary practices for some people.

Secondary Spiritual Practices: These support, amplify, expand, and deepen the primary practice. Secondary, supportive spiritual practices are less individual. There are five of them, and all five are for everyone.

This week, Lake Chalice will be exploring spirituality and the practices that encourage it.
