Spirituality means different things to different people. Some people feel spirituality can only be nourished from mainstream faith traditions whereas others feel an internal connection through meditation is sufficient to harness tranquillity and serenity. In our dynamic and complex world, can traditional faiths like Christianity and Islam still be an enabler in attaining higher states of spirituality or are more people likely to distance themselves from conventional faith traditions to explore and practice spirituality for themselves ? Can a person reach the heights of spirituality through their own life experiences and through their own meditative practices ? Why are so many young people distancing themselves from conventional faith traditions and becoming agnostic or unbelievers ? These and more will be discussed in our conversation panel.
