Data and Spirituality

I’ve been thinking lately about the interface between data and spirituality, and while I have some ideas that I’ll be presenting in future blog posts, I thought I’d start with a question. A plea for learning, really.

How have people thought about using data to inform and promote spiritual practice? What I’m looking for is something along the lines of The Quantified Self meeting spiritual formation?

There are, of course, no end of academic studies of spirituality, many of which use data (including this interesting article that just came out in JSSR–about types of spirituality).

I’m looking for something more applied–how people have used data to increase spirituality.

Any ideas? thoughts? references?
