A SPIRITUAL health programme is being launched this Wednesday at the Findhorn Foundation.

Dr William Bloom is the director of the Spiritual Companions Trust which has organised the event.

He said: "A wealth of scientific evidence demonstrates that spirituality improves your physical, emotional and psychological health. This is because spirituality can reduce stress and anxiety, and can bring your body and mind into a state of healthy balance.

"There is a wealth of rigorous academic evidence that spirituality can help people sustain their wellbeing and recover more easily from illness.

"Recognising the jewels at the heart of all the world’s faiths and welcoming diversity, Your Spiritual Health Programme is the first accessible programme to make explicit how spiritual health works and how to achieve it.

"And unlike many self-help approaches, which can be overly self-focused and narcissistic, we also place a strong emphasis on care and service to others."
