This community is for anyone who is interested in helping with elphie's web project: Geek Spirituality - Mysticism for Rationalists.

The goals of this project are as follows:

A. To explain aspects of spiritual practice and mysticism in terms that are appealing to rationalists.
B. To show how spiritual and mystical techniques are applicable even to the lives of rationalists and athiests.
C. To provide techniques for achieving altered states of consciousness and exploring the psyche.
D. To act as a bridge to allow rationalists greater access to spiritual teachings that are written from a non-rationalist perspective.
E. To improve the quality of life of geeks by allowing them greater access and understanding of the irrational parts of their psyche and the psyche of others.

This site consists largely of a series of essays from my research and my own spiritual practice. I am looking for people who have an interest in this topic to critique my early drafts, and add their input and suggestions. In addition I could use some design help. Feel free to participate as much or as little as you would like.

The site is scheduled to launch in October 2006.
