Banyen's Description: 

Technology can now evoke and control the spiritual experience. This book, dedicated to Huston Smith, is a journey through the high-tech aids for psychological growth that are changing our world, while exploring the safety, authenticity and ethics of this new world. Spirit Tech maps the "brain-based technologies designed to trigger, enhance, accelerate, modify, or measure spiritual experience."

It's no surprise that we're turning to technological aids for the spiritual journey. From apps that help us pray or meditate, to psychonauts enriching and refining experience through entheogenic molecules and plants, to cybernauts seeking the fast track to nirvana through magnetic brain stimulation—have you been to VR Church?—we are on the brink of the most transformative revolution in the practice of religion: an era in which we harness the power of spirit tech to deepen our experience of the divine.

Spirit tech products are rapidly improving in sophistication and power, and ordinary people need a trustworthy guide. Through their own research and insiders access to the top innovators and early adopters, Wes and Kate take you deep inside an evolving world:

  • Find out how increasingly popular wearables work on your brain, promising a shortcut to transformative meditative states.
  • Meet the inventor of the God Helmet who developed a tool to increase psychic skills, and overcome fear, sadness, and anger.
  • Visit churches that use ayahuasca as their sacrament and explore the booming industry of psychedelic tourism.
  • Journey to a mansion in the heart of Silicon Valley where a group of scientists and entrepreneurs are working feverishly to bring brain-based spirit tech applications to the masses.
  • Discover a research team who achieved brain-to-brain communication between individuals thousands of miles apart, harnessing neurofeedback techniques to sync and share emotions among group members.

Spirit Tech offers readers a compelling glimpse into the possible future and is the definitive guide to the fascinating world of new innovations for personal transformation, spiritual growth, and pushing the boundaries of human nature.

The creative spirit of our species is drawing up forward into more profound and transformative connections with the spiritual depths of reality itself.

“A thought-provoking treasure of information and reflections on multiple tools that may accelerate the processes of personal development and spiritual awakening.” —William Richards, Johns Hopkins Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research and author of Sacred Knowledge
