2 doctors agree
In brief: Relationships
Relationships are the vehicle by which spiritual growth takes place, the spiritual qualities of kindness, compassion , empathy, tolerance must be practiced with others and cannot develop in isolation.

In brief: For sure
Family and personal relationships can give us endless opportunities to practice (or learn from the ground up) qualities such as patience, kindness, lovingness, compassion, and service -- all of which contribute to spiritual growth.
Some have said, "if you think you're spiritually evolved, go visit your parents for a weekend." :-) we're all growing, and our connections with each other are key.

Could not agree more - the various aspects of our lives flow together and create an overall picture of who we are. Spiritual issues impact relationships, and relationships are a reflection of spiritual issues.
