CMACers Dr. Wesley Wildman and Kate Stockly are in the process of writing Spirit Tech: The Brave New World of Technology-Assisted Spirituality, a book that will further scholars’ and consumers’ understandings of a new frontier of religious practice.
Here’s a brief summary:
From psychedelic tourism to techno-geek psychonauts, spiritual seeking has finally merged with high-tech entrepreneurism. Most people are still not aware of these technologies of spirituality, let alone how they are likely to develop over the next few decades. Spirit Tech introduces and evaluates, from the perspective of two scholars who have decades of research on religion and spirituality behind them, several new spiritual technologies within what they call the “scattered supermarket of special spiritual services.”
