Science and Spirituality: Friends or Foes?
Albert Einstein wrote: “The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental motion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.” Join us as we explore how the mysteries and discoveries of Religion and Science can help inform and guide the process of creating your own unique and personal meaningful life.
This workshop will explore the intersection and divergence of thought arising from the human quest to answer the most fundamental questions about the universe through science and through spiritual paths. We will focus on the meaning of space, time and the physical world through scientific and spiritual lenses and explore the potential for how interaction with technology can aid and detract from our development as individuals and a species.
There is no requirement for any particular knowledge or background in science or commitment to a spiritual practice to participate in this workshop.
Workshop Leader: Bobby Gintz
Bobby is a veteran of the computer communications and robotics industry with over 35 years of experience. He has led and contributed to all aspects of technology product development, design, and marketing. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering a Master’s degree in Computer Science and an MBA Master’s in Marketing and Project Management. He served as VP of Development for Equinox Systems and led engineering for Northrop Grumman Remotec. He is also a commercial pilot and certified flight instructor.

In childhood he was found to be both Dyslexic and Ambidextrous.
