Students’ Spiritual Security Education
Keywords:Spirituality, spiritual culture and security, spiritual values, values and meanings sphere, morality.
The article is devoted to the problem of students’ spiritual security education, which, in our opinion, requires a deep study nowadays, because of the acute need for the finding of spiritual value and sense support to protect students from the negative impact of the external environment. According to the authors, spiritual security is defined as a developed spiritual property of a personality, which is a system of universal human values, ideals of a positive personality. Spiritual security includes the value and sense sphere of the personality, culture, a high level of spirituality, and the ideals of the personality. The inclusion of art education elements in the educational process of the university plays a significant role in students’ spiritual security education. The authors accentuate that the special course “The Spiritual Foundations of Your Life” occupies a special place among the pedagogical disciplines that contribute to students’ spiritual security education. The program of the special course focuses on the awakening of spirituality, which can fill the spiritual emptiness of the personality and the education of the Spiritualized Image of a Person of Culture of the 21st century. The authors are convinced that the result of students’ spiritual security education would be their spiritual awakening as spiritually, culturally, morally, artistically and aesthetically oriented and innovatively thinking personalities with a highly developed creative potential.
