Since time immemorial the human relationship with spirit, whether all-embracing or outright hostile, has been a key part of how people sense and make sense of what they perceive as their own personal realities. The archaeology of our social and physical worlds gives testament to the tangible imprint of spirit and spirituality through time. Spirit touches our world and leaves its mark, whether we believe in it or not. Based on empirical research with spiritual practitioners, this chapter explores a dual reading of spirit's touch in the modern world, as both physical contact and psychical connection.
