Abstract

The search for a 'profane spirituality' is linked to the process of globalization deconstructing existing national, ideological and religious boundaries. This ongoing deconstruction of familiar social identities and institutional settings makes it necessary to find a new and deeper source of self-orientation and creativity. Therefore, spirituality as a way of exploring our deeper self and the ultimate purpose of life becomes part of the non-religious or 'profane' processes of discernment, choice and decision-making. The paper deals with four interrelated topics: (1) The emergence of a spiritual wave in Western culture; (2) The meaning of "spirituality in economics"; (3) The European SPES project; and (4) The link to Christian spirituality
