Spiritual resilience, defined as transformational learning, is demonstrated through periods of spiritual, religious, and existential struggle. It moves beyond other forms of biopsychosocial resilience to envision radical new possibility. Research described perceptions of 55 married and civil partner same-sex couples who rejected religion, claimed a religious identity, excluded from formal religion, found accommodation with spiritual or religious identity, or formed their own meaningful trajectory. A second study discussed observations from 75 Black and Jewish participants who coped through meditation and prayer, shifted their cognitive stance, connected more deeply to the Self, or built their own life philosophy.
