What is Enlightment Audio Interview

Carter Phipps, editor of What is Enlightment Magazine, interviewed me this week on how Digital Dharma relates to the evolution of consciousness. WIE is produced by Enlightenment Next, the organization created by spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen.

To listen to the interview you can visit WIE Unbound and sign up for their free 15-day trial. WIE Unbound is the gateway to the behind-the-scenes audios and videos including interviews, lectures and dialogues with the leading spiritual teachers, philosophers, scientists, and activists featured in every issue of What Is Enlightenment? magazine. All audios and videos are available to download or stream online.

This is how they describe the podcast on their website.

In this Unbound audio, WIE’s Carter Phipps speaks to Vedro about why he thinks that the spirituality of the future will be one that finds a way to embrace the rapid technological change that is increasingly shaping our lives as we move deeper into the twenty-first century. Drawing upon the ideas of a rich array of thinkers, including Ken Wilber, Don Beck, and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Vedro describes how technologies native to each stage in human history, from the printing press to television to the world wide web, have simultaneously molded—and been molded by—developments within society, culture, and consciousness.

Television and the Broken Heart: Compassion, Codependence, and Consumption -- From Chapter Four

This is an audio clip (with video animation) of a presentation I made two years ago at the Institute of Noetic Sciences conference on "Consciousness and the Media." I will post all of these clips, even though they are a bit outdated.
