Whereas religion describes a shared system of beliefs and participation in typically public worship, spirituality is personal, describing one’s inner path and the practices that enable a person to discover the essence of his or her being.

Matador publishes extensive content including personal essays and narratives on spirituality as well as interviews with spiritual leaders.

Matador’s Brave New Traveler channel has focused on “inner travel” or travel as an essentially spiritual act.
