Spirituality is widely recognized as contributing to overall well being, especially those with a chronic illness. Ellison (1983) conceptualized spirituality as consisting of two components. Religious well being (RWB) is the relationship that one has with God while existential well-being (EWB) is derived from a purpose and meaning in life. What is not known is the relationship between RWB and EWB and global quality of life in people with heart failure. A sample of 57 persons participating in a longitudinal study of quality of life completed the Ellison Spirituality Well Being and a global quality of life tool (Index of Well Being). The mean age of the predominantly male sample (66%) was 57 years. EWB had a slightly stronger relations with global quality of life (r=.47, p=.001) than RWB (r=.43, p=.001). The combined spirituality score predicted 24% of the variance in global quality of life in this sample. This sample did report a high degree of participation in religious activities and daily prayer. No gender differences were found. Faced with a serious and deteriorating chronic condition with a 50% 5-year mortality, this sample of persons with heart failure reported a considerable influence of spirituality on their overall well being.
