This chapter examines the application of the arts as a nondenominational tool for reconnecting spirituality and medicine. It discusses efforts to change the medical community's perspective of a patient's journey through illness from being impacted only by technology and scientific advances to inviting holistic questions about spirituality and creativity. The chapter provides some examples of the far-reaching interest in the arts, medicine, and spirituality movement, which demonstrates the fact that a real desire exists to reunite the science of medicine with the art of medicine.

Keywords:   arts, nondenominational tool, spirituality, medicine, medical community, creativity
