Like occupational therapy, spirituality is very individualized, therefore the specific activity and its experience, context, and environment will relate to the “essence of the person and their inner motivator” (Bassett, Lloyd, and Tse, 2008). It has the potential to influence [an individual 's] overall health and structure human experience, beliefs, values, behavior, and illness patterns (Taylor et al., 2000). It can also “affect occupational performance and development throughout the lifespan” (Donica, 2008).
