Postsecular means:

  • a renewed interest in the spiritual life
  • a relaxation of the secular suspicion towards spiritual questions
  • a recognition that secular rights and freedoms of expression are a prerequisite to the renewal of spiritual enquiry
  • a spiritual and intellectual pluralism, East and West
  • a cherishing of the best in all spiritual traditions, East and West, while recognising the repression sometimes inflicted on individuals or societies in the name of 'religion'
