Consciousness in VR Hosted by SpiritualVR
Sign up on Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/consciousness-in-vr-tickets-31767286810
Please join us for an engaging evening of celebration, conversation, and experience to explore the intersection between our inventions and our intentions.
Virtual reality and related technologies are going to powerfully and irresistibly reshape the ways we think about ourselves, others, and the world around us. Unprecedented opportunities to build wisdom and higher consciousness will abound, and so will applications that can isolate, separate, and divide us.
Which will we choose? Who will be doing the choosing? The central question we may ask of technology mirrors this spiritual one: who is ruling whom? How do we make mindful choices about the development and uses of technology? How do we ensure that tech reflects our diversity, our varied experiences, and the unique voices that make our individual and social consciousness vibrant and meaningful?
Those are some of the questions that will be considered during the evening, through a discussion among panelists who have thought deeply about them and in other activities and conversations. There will also be plentiful opportunities to personally experience many current virtual reality creations. And food! And beverage! And spectacular interactions with soulful sisters and brothers as well as a special launch announcement!
If you are among those committed to aligning what we create with who we want to be, this event shouldn’t be missed.
Lisa Padilla, Founder and CEO SpiritualVR
SpiritualVR: VR is going to change the way we grow and experience spirituality. VR will change the way we experience the world, period. Many people have yet to experience VR but when they do, they will join the rest of us in understanding the possibilities in bending reality and what that means to our emotional impact, how it changes our lives, our spirits. SpiritualVR is a content creator and publisher focused on spirituality and self-improvement. We are leveraging the unique properties of VR to create emotionally powerful spiritual experiences that can have a positive impact on you after you return to the real world. VR allows us to present emotional forces that motivate change. And these changes are so impactful, that they remain with us long after people take the headset off. That’s powerful. Let’s use that power for good.
