Does Technology Challenge Us as Spiritual Beings?

That’s the big question and it was asked by one of our favorite and most popular guests on The COIL, Dr. Katina Michael, Associate Dean - International, University of Wollongong, NSW Australia. In a bit of a format departure from our typical episode structure, the hosts valiantly attempt to answer the aforementioned “big question” and it quickly evolves into a spirited discussion on techno-spirituality. Perhaps the discussion didn’t evolve at all – the entire episode was intelligently designed. The only way to be certain is to listen and judge for your self.
