The pace of living today and the pressure to cope within an increasingly complex career context make it easy to disconnect your true self from your work (soul–spirit disconnection). Such disconnections can have disastrous effects on a person’s life. However, people can take steps to increase their soul–spirit connection in their work. We use the hope action theory and career flow model to demonstrate how counselors can help their clients address these issues.
