Spirituality has various definitions between races, cultures, and environments, it is important to define spirituality and to understand the context in which it connects with the demographic spirituality is interacting in. The authors define spirituality as an amalgamation of prevailing thought, which consists of individual beliefs that may or may not be associated with a religious institution, but yet provides meaning to an individual's life.
