Summary Once taught almost exclusively in seminaries, spirituality is now finding its way into the curricula of professional training for health and welfare workers. How this should occur, particularly within the context of the secular university, raises many questions and may require different approaches to those used to teach spirituality to theological students. This article introduces a framework of lived experience, which was developed to stimulate social work students to consider the importance of spirituality in both their own lives and in the lives of clients, and concludes that these are exciting times for the teaching of spirituality.
