MIAMI, FL and CORAL GABLES, FL--(Marketwire - May 8, 2012) - Zagada Markets, through its Zagada Foundation, announces the support of Tam Hunt's debut film, Seeking the Divine: Spirituality in the Information Age.

The film focuses on the trend away from organized religion and toward a more personalized and authentic spirituality. Its format is a collection of interviews, anecdotes and observations about modern spirituality, from both experts and laypeople. An attempt is made at outlining the central and unifying commonalities among the emerging spirituality suitable for the Information Age that defines our current lives.
Hunt summarizes the key message of the film by expressing the following: "How do we find meaning in a universe that is often so cold? We are increasingly rejecting the solutions offered by organized religion and instead embracing a more personalized path to truth and spirituality."
A sampling of important observations from key interviewed participants are captured from the quotes featured below:
"The first thing to recognize is that the view of God that is the standard view, the all-knowing, the all-powerful, the all-loving, is just one possible way of conceiving of some sort of intelligence greater than our own. There is a view that it's sort of all or nothing. But maybe this is a mistake, not that there can't be some sort of higher power."
Prof. Jonathan Schooler, Psychology, UC Santa Barbara.
"I started to see so many common themes and imagery [in all of my reading in various spiritual and religious traditions] and I started to think that there's probably a mind that we have that is echoing a [larger] mind that we don't have, but we're part of that mind and that mind is part of us."
Elizabeth Stewart, Art Appraiser and scholar of religion.
In supporting the venture, Peters is quoted as saying, "In business we're traditionally taught to stay away from mentioning religion and politics; however, the renewed focus by business schools to now seriously include courses on ethics and governance, and society's wider embrace of social entrepreneurship, care giving, work-life balance and the like, are all meta spirituality concerns," Peters said. "The spiritual practice of the late Steve Jobs and the products his company delivers to us, and the philanthropic thrust of Bill Gates and his foundation, are solid exhibits in applied spirituality from the information society heavyweights," Peters emphasized. "We celebrate and support Tam's film project and encourage others to do so with us," Peters concluded.
