How do Humanists do Spirituality?

Humanism is a naturalist philosophy meaning it rejects supernaturalism. However, it is a holistic philosophy of life which is as much concerned with personal development as it is with social responsibility.   In that sense it fits in perfectly with a “spiritual” life practice.

So, how do Humanists improve themselves? How do they remove bad habits and replace them with better ones. How do Humanists cope with tragedies such as what happened at Sandy Hook back in Dec?

How can we who hold a naturalist view of the world better work with people whose beliefs about the supernatural are so different than ours?

Here is the Jan 2013 Ask a Humanist, which is based on questions posted by Spiritual Naturalist Society director, DT Strain.
