In light of this Blog’s acknowledgement of its Spiritual But Not Religious (SBNR) target audience, this week our Spirit On The Web feature brings you three video clips which focus on just what that community may be defined as.  

First up, Brian Holdsworth briefly speaks to why more and more people are describing themselves as Spiritual but not religious.  Next, Fr. Thomas Keating provides a congenial religious/theological perspective on why people would identify as SBNR.  We wrap up this week’s trifecta with a longish clip of Vedic teacher Acharya Das‘ talk which also addresses the issue of why people might want to think of themselves as Spiritual but not religious.  Hold on to the final 3.5 minutes for one kick ass Hari Krishna chant.
