How often do you find moments of deep peace and satisfaction in your day-to-day life? How often does connection with other people, the divine, or nature make you feel more alive? How often are you touched by a sense of awe-inspiring beauty, compassionate love, or pure joy? For many of us, these kinds of experiences tend to be fleeting and all too rare. Fortunately, new research is suggesting that a regular practice of paying attention to experiences like these can help any of us find them more often and cultivate richer, deeper, and more satisfying lives. InSpiritual Connection in Daily Life,Lynn Underwood introduces her Daily Spiritual Experience Scale (DSES), which is comprised of sixteen simple, multiple-choice questions that invite us to become more attuned tothese extraordinary experiences in ordinary life. The DSES is the definitive set of questions for measuring the experience of spiritual connection and has been used in hundreds of studies, translated into over twenty languages, and used around the world by counselors, therapists, nurses, social workers, clergy from multiple faiths, and business leaders. Spiritual Connection in Daily Lifeoffers a step-by-step guide to using the DSES to improve our abilities to sense the “more than” in the midst of our days. Embraced by people from many different cultures, religious traditions, and professional backgrounds, the DSES doesn’t require any extraordinary experience like hearing divine voices or embarking upon a dramatic religious conversion. Nor does it belabor the exact definition of “spirituality.”Rather, it simply invites us to focus on aspects of our daily lives such as deep peace, sense of inner strength, longing, and compassionate love. The sixteen questions also provide a common, nonpolarizing language for communicating with others about the role of the “more than” in our lives. Adherents of all faith traditions, as well as people with no religious leanings whatsoever, have experienced profound and lasting benefits from having these experiences, including improved health behaviors, better relationships, decreased stress and burnout, and improvements in daily mood. Now all of us can reap these same long-term benefits with just a little bit of self-reflection and Dr. Underwood’s expert guidance.

Ernst Cassirer wird 1874 in Breslau geboren. Er studiert Jura, Literatur und Philosophie in Berlin, wechselt aber dann nach Marburg und schliesst sich der Marburger Schule des Neukantianismus an. 1899 erfolgt die Promotion mit einer Schrift uber Descartes bei Paul Natorp. Nach seiner Habilitation 1906 halt Cassirer als Privatdozent Lehrveranstaltungen in Berlin und folgt dann 1919 einem Ruf an die neugegrundete Universitat in Hamburg. Hier kommt es zu einer ausserordentlich fruchtbaren Zusammenarbeit mit der Kulturwissenschaftlichen Bibliothek Warburg, in der der Grundstein fur die Entwicklung seines Hauptwerkes Die Philosophie der symbolischen Formen gelegt wird. In diesem dreibandigen Werk (1923-29) wird der Entwurf einer systematischen Philosophie der Kultur unternommen. Dem Begriff der symbolischen Formen, in denen sich menschliches Erleben mit Hilfe z. B. von Sprache, Kunst, Mythen oder Wissenschaft ausdruckt, kommt dabei die Funktion zu, einen geistigen Bedeutungsgehalt mit einem sinnlichen Zeichen zu verknupfen. Kultur ist in diesem Zusammenhang die Sinnschopfung des Menschen durch Symbole, was dem Umstand Rechnung tragt, dass es auch primitivere Formen der Welterkenntnis gibt. 1933 emigriert Ernst Cassirer uber England nach Schweden und nimmt die schwedische Staatsburgerschaft an. Acht Jahre spater ubersiedelt er mit seiner Frau und drei Kindern nach Amerika, wo er bis zu seinem Tod 1945 verschiedene Lehrtatigkeiten ausubt.Lynn Underwood, CBO, received his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering. He is certified in 12 categories by the International Code Council.
