This book contains papers presented at the 2nd Global Conference, Spirituality in the 21st Century: At the Interface of Theory, Praxis and Pedagogy held in Prague in 2012. They represent current research being done in various disciplines and settings around the world in: architecture, art, communication, education, film studies, hospice and palliative care, literature, management, musicology, performance studies, philosophy, psychology, social and cultural anthropology, social work, sociology, and theology.
The contemporary study of spirituality encompasses a wide range of interests, often founded on inter- and multidisciplinary approaches. What unites them is the attempt to research about a given process in an existential way, trying to explore the essentials of a particular phenomenon in its holistic manifestation(s). For this to be realised, research on spiritual theory, praxis and pedagogy tends to be a mindful and meticulous journey into the subtle movements of phenomenal interfaces and their interpretations. This volume offers thorough and contemplative reflections on Spirituality - reaching from its mystic qualities of nothingness to its study and practice with children. The authors hope that this book will serve as an inspiration upon which future research, application and teaching may be based.
