Does the Internet and our newest digital technology reflect a deeper spiritual consciousness or create new ways of thinking and perceiving? Steven Vedro makes a compelling case for how the Infosphere does both and can teach us how to take the next step on our journey to wholeness. “It’s my belief that everything is part of the dharma path… and like it or not, we are evolving into this connected global brain, this connected community, and with it at each point comes incredible moral challenges. And so the dharma path of seeing each opportunity as a lesson and how we handle ourselves… who we are as we are interacting with the media forms.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
