David Webster argues that modern spirituality is not only unhelpful, it can make you stupid, selfish and unhappy.
This week on Tapestry, the author and teacher says that the mind, body, spirit movement is a lot like a cocktail - and not in a good way. You start with a little Buddhism, add a dash of meditation, shake it all up with a bit of chanting, and what do you end up with? A hot mess.
In the second half of the show, Kevin Miller's documentary, Hellbound?, asks whether Christians should be rethinking eternal damnation. The British Columbia fimmaker found that even asking the question gets some believers anxious, antsy, and very angry.
Kevin talked to all sorts of people - churchgoers, priests, theologians - essentially anyone who had an answer to his big question: What if we just abandoned the idea of Hell?
There's an upcoming screening of Hellbound? taking place in Vancouver. And abridged version of the documentary will air on CBC's Documentary Channel on April 1, 2013.
