Abstract
Abstract Life-history and auto-ethnography research methods were employed to explore the influence of spiritual beliefs upon individuals’ leisure time activity throughout their life experience. Data were collected from a semi-structured discussion among 12 individuals with different spiritual backgrounds. Overall, it was found that religious and non-religious spirituality influenced participants’ leisure participation at different stages of their lives in both positive and negative ways. Specifically, six themes emerged from this study: (1) Recreation and Play Catalyst; (2) Family Leisure and Religion; (3) Social Enabler; (4) Time and Schedule Conflicts; (5) Guilt and Fear; and (6) The Role of Otherism.
