The term open source comes from the world of software and technology. It refers to a system with source code that is publicly visible and open to change; typically by a large community of contributing authors. (Most software is closed: you can’t open it up, change it, or see what’s inside.) In our case, open source is a metaphor for a style of spirituality that is collaborative, open and evolving.
Just think of it like Fight Club… First rule of Open Source Spirituality is: stop trying to be “spiritual.” Be you instead.
Nope. And the free membership is good for life. I’ll eventually have some things up for sale, but that’s still a ways off. I’ve got a lot of ground to cover, and I want to get Open Source Spirituality out and up and running before I worry about things like books and apparel and other goodies.
Nope. I probably hate spam more than you do. And I won’t ever sell your contact info either. When you Join the Tribe, you’ll get email updates for things like the Crash Course and occasional big news events. But you can unsubscribe at any time. If you would like to get more regular updates on things like new and upcoming blog posts, you can sign up using the Get Email Updates form below. (You can unsubscribe from those at any time too.) I wanted to make the two separate so that you have more control over your email preferences.
