Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Subjective" and "individual" are not - quite - the same thing. Cultures can have - indeed are defined by - subjective narratives that are shared within the culture but not outside it.

Fair enough, subjective can be found at individual as well as at any grouping level.
Culture and spirituality is not quite the same thing either, btw.
There are culture-transversal spiritualities also. Religion or esoteric beliefs or modern "self-made " spiritualities can be shared by people with different cultural backgrounds.

People can share a collection of such 'subjectivisms' and differ on others, related, or not to the culture(s)  they belong.
Still these subjective... 'influences' touch the individual on a very intimate level, which one might think should make them very personal and difficult to share. How come that still happens then, are there any favourable factors, or criteria. And also -- is culture
- or spirituality - a man-only thing.
