Stigma is a Greek word referring to a mark or tattoo burned onto the skin of criminals, slaves, or traitors to visibly identify them as accused or morally polluted. These people were to be avoided, particularly in public places. Stigmatization is a process that marks a person or a group of people. The stigmatized are socially rejected because they have broken a law or a social norm. They are seen as deviants.

Spirituality can include, but is not limited to, religious beliefs and it’s immaterial.”
