Abstract

The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the effect of an Integral Life Practice workshop on perceptions of health and spirituality. An integral psychological approach using mixed quantitative and qualitative methods in a pre- and post-test, quasi experimental and control group design was used to assess changes in health and spirituality perceptions as quantitatively assessed on standardized scales. Data collected from 42 participants in four experimental workshops were compared with data from a control group of 26 persons. Significant differences observed in health and spirituality perceptions were supported by participants’ qualitative experiences and workshop evaluations. The findings are discussed in relation to previous and future research.

Keywords: Integral life practice, workshops, health, spirituality, perceptions.
