Five fundamental life-world existentials has been identified for reflecting on human experiences:
- lived space (spatiality)
- lived body (corporeality)
- lived time (temporality)
- lived human relation (relationality or communality) and
- lived spirit or lived meaning (spirituality)
These dimensions through which human beings experience their world impact on one another and all play a part in the way meaning is created in experience. Each individual has his own way of experiencing temporality, spatiality, corporeality, relationality and spirituality. These life-world existentials are used for both reflection and interpretation in Existential Psychotherapy.
