Spiritual Naturalism Today

Religion & Spirituality >

A conversation on science, nature, and spirituality, sponsored by the Spiritual Naturalist Society. In this podcast we explore the many varieties of naturalistic spiritual practice from a wide variety of traditions. Those with a scientific/rational view of the world, who hold no beliefs in an afterlife or literal gods still ask the question: what is the best way to live to achieve happiness and flourishing? Inspiration will come from secular Buddhism, ancient Greek thought, naturalistic Paganism, Taoism, Humanism, modern research, and more. Spiritual Naturalism and Religious Naturalism can include meditation, ritual, mythology, music, and so on.
