About this event

We know a lot about the therapeutic benefits of geekdom. This session is about the spiritual benefits— enhancing our sense of identity, meaning, and belonging — of engaging in our geekdoms. How can RPGs, video games, comic books, participation in fandoms, etc. help us discover who we are? How can "playing to bleed" and the fictional distance afforded us by playing games and reading sci-fi/fantasy strengthen our growth, exploration, and healing. Have a discussion with panelists who have spent years thinking about and living spirituality.

Geeky therapist or therapizing geek. I love games and popular culture and I like to think about how we engage with these cultural artifacts in a meaningful way.
