Our reliance on technology is rapidly changing how each of us experiences life. We re facing new issues and difficulties, we re encountering new emotional triggers, and we re relating to each other in new ways. As Dr. Nancy Colier writes, How we spend our time, what motivates us, and what we want are all are on a radical course of transformation. The promise of technology is that it will make our lives easier; yet to realize that promise, we cannot be passive users we must bring awareness and mindfulness to our relationships with our devices.
The compulsion to constantly check our devices plays on primal instincts, teaches Colier. Even people with strong spiritual practices or those who have never had other addiction issues now find themselves caught in the subtle trap of these miraculous tools we’ve created. Through The Power of Off, she offers us a path for making use of the virtual world while still feeling good, having healthy relationships, and staying connected with what is genuinely meaningful in life.
With The Power of Off, Colier sounds the call for wakefulness, reminding us that we can use technology in a way that promotes, rather than detracts from, our well-being. This book provides an essential resource for anyone wanting to create a more empowered relationship with technology in the digital age.
