Do you ever feel that your digital devices are capturing every ounce of your attention and perhaps even a piece of your soul? What if you could carve out time in your busy calendar for space, creativity and a sacred pause?
In this workshop we will explore the practice of the Digital Sabbath, an entire day dedicated to living without the influence of social media, email or digital advertisement. So-called Attention Engineers use gambling principles to make online experience as addictive as possible, but you don’t have to escape to nature or go on silent retreat to find a reprieve from these constant bombardments. Together we’ll create a game plan for designing and maintaining this counter-cultural practice that will open your mind and heart to new and exciting possibilities.
