The Little Book of Spiritual Health

The Little Book of Spiritual Health Gift Set. 


The Little Book of Spiritual Health introduces the concepts of contemporary spirituality and spiritual health to our colleagues in the broader healthcare sector. It is an acknowledgement of the huge burden they have carried being the front-line workforce throughout the Covid-19 health crisis. Every aspect of professional working life has been impacted and this has extracted an enormous toll on our precious human resources and esteemed colleagues. The Little Book of Spiritual Health is a timely offering that provides a foundation to begin or continue the exploration into one’s own spiritual health as an integral part of holistic wellbeing.

In our professional settings we are all familiar with how the other domains of human expression, i.e. the physical, psychological, emotional, social, and mental work together, but very often the spiritual is overlooked. The collective experience of the pandemic has asked us all to go deeper with our reflections of what it means to be human and how we integrate our spiritual and existential realities into our daily responsibilities and lives.

The Little Book of Spiritual Health is offered as a resource to inspire genuine care of the soul in honour of the dedication, commitment, and continued courage our healthcare professionals bring to their roles in service to the community.

“When I sat down to read The Little Book of Spiritual Health I reflected on so much about what's important to me, my values and my family. It also got me thinking about how important my spiritual health is as part of my overall wellbeing. I encourage healthcare workers to take the time to stop and reflect on some of the beautiful questions this little book so eloquently invites us to reflect on.”

The Small Gift

The Small Gift is about taking a pause and reconnecting to Self. In doing so, we are better able to know what matters to our patients and their carers, and how best to be of service in our many different health and caring roles. The Small Gift invites you to go a little deeper, to become still and touch upon your innate source of sensitivity as you contemplate and ponder the 18 questions contained within. All the answers are known to you and will reflect your own unique life circumstance.

The questions ask you to focus on what it feels like to experience spiritual health, as well as reflect upon what it might feel like to experience spiritual dis-ease or dis-stress. It is from this place we can bring greater understanding and awareness to the totality of our lives.  

You will notice that The Small Gift is in the likeness of the beautiful peony, a flower that has been revered by Chinese Emperors and represented in Chinese art through-out the ages. The peony has come to be associated with riches, wealth, and honour. We chose it for this project as a representation of our heart centre and the beauty and delicateness that lies at our essence.

"I was lucky enough to receive the Small Gift some months ago and ever since it has come with me, in amongst the objects of daily life and mess in my handbag. Every time I see it there, I take it out and feel its beautiful texture, I turn the petals and fan them out, and I read the words that immediately bring me into the present moment. It is an invitation to reflect on my work and myself, and has helped me to pause and take stock. 

The Little Book is the perfect next step to thinking more deeply, becoming more still and contemplating my work as a mental health nurse. It is a lovely thing; a kindness that encourages me to regroup and reset in amongst all the chaos of health care work."
