What do you think of when you think of spirituality? Some would say that spirituality involves the search for enlightenment or a connection to something other than ourselves.

Take a look at the video below (from the start until 1:36)  to see one short perspective on spirituality:

How does this search for spirituality, enlightenment and connection involve technology? Have new forms of religion restored technology or has technology restored religion? Or could it be a combination of both possibilities?

According to Feng and Petrina, there is a desire for meaning and purpose and a turn to spirituality and religion to find this purpose (2009). How does technology fit in with the re-emergence of religion? What do you think about the possibility that spirituality and technology are interconnected and mutually interdependent?

These are some questions to start thinking about as you begin your journey to explore the connectivity of spirituality and technology.
