The student who has a higher spiritual quest score is more eager to continue in the industry, has a higher thought process regarding the future and scope of ones career. The much professional approach is what is required by hospitality professional, however there are numerous times at situations when the stiff back attitude is not required and these demands for a humane and holistic approach toward hospitality. We are practicing hospitality where we welcome guests mostly strangers however even some repeat visitors, into our lives with graciousness. To be hospitable, you need to accept pluralism as a natural condition in the world. Celebrate the diversity of the Creation. One particularly valuable spin-off of hospitality is inter-religious dialogue. Spirit speaks in many languages, and this spiritual practice helps us receive these multiple messages. Equanimity plays an important role in the quality of undergraduate students lives because it helps to shape how they respond to their experiences, especially experiences that are potentially stressful.
