Meeting God in Virtual Reality: Using Spiritual Practices with Media explores the holy ground of imagined or constructed reality, sometimes known as “virtual reality.” The term "virtual reality" is here defined not only encompassing cyber space, but also film, television, and other media of popular culture.
Presbyterian pastor and spiritual director Daniel Wolpert, and a faith-based media literacy advocate and spiritual director Teresa Blythe, know that people are searching for tools that bridge popular culture with Christian spirituality. The co-authors believe that this ebook will assist people in developing awareness of the Spirit of God that is present in media.
This guidebook introduces six prayer practices and describe how they may be used with media, including:
- the Benedictine practice of lectio divina
- the Ignatian Examen (an awareness prayer)
- imaginative prayer
- the discipline of study
- spiritual discernment
- imageless centering prayer.
