Awakening the spirit is at the heart of STAR’s work, and is the underlying goal of our program. STAR provides an opportunity to discover and develop authentic spirituality. Throughout the process, many participants find themselves strengthening their spiritual orientation as they go deeper into their own experience. Those for whom the realm of spirit or soul has seemed vague, remote, or nonexistent often experience a profound rekindling of this aspect of their lives.
While matters of the soul and spirit are central to the work of STAR, we neither advocate nor prescribe specific religious beliefs or spiritual practices. Rather, STAR supports a personal search for authenticity in these and other issues, while taking great care to honor the reality and validity of each experience.
