S A D - Spiritual Affective Disorder                                                         

Winter can be a time of Seasonal Affective Disorder, when the lack of sunlight affects our moods and ability to cope effectively.

But Spiritual Affective Disorder can also be a factor as we lead lives that are too crowded, busy, overcommitted, sometimes disturbing, and uncertain. 

At the turn of this New Year, we will explore everyday life activities that can become spiritual practices—deepening our experience of a meaningful life and giving us a chance to become more “light-hearted.”
