This exploratory paper presents a pilot study conducted with 64 undergraduate students at Edinburgh Napier University in November 2023. The aim of this study was to understand how people who do not necessarily identify as religious engaged in what they saw as spiritual and or faith-based practices and how those participants saw technology playing a role now, and in the future of these experiences. The pilot study is part of a series of initial investigations to understand two key areas: What do modern practices around religion, faith and spirituality look like? How could technology support modern engagement and new interactive experiences with contemporary faith and spiritual practices?
