+ Pool is an initiative to build a floating pool for everyone in the rivers of New York City.

1. Pop Matters: Can Games be Spiritual Experiences?
“We agreed in fairly short order that, as religions and fandoms both tend to organize themselves around stories and looking to characters as models for behavior, a case could indeed be made for games as religion.

2. Beth Green: Self-Serving Myths Women Tell Ourselves About Men
“I also asked us to look more deeply into our own sexual behaviors and what they reveal about our lack of fulfilling intimate relationships and the disconnection between our sexuality and our spirituality.”

3. New York Times: Of Spirituality and a Quest for Romance
