What if there was a way to reduce stress and become kinder, calmer, and more patient? Join us as we host a discussion on immersive technologies and explore the past, present, and future of meditation and mindfulness.

This special Phoenix VR For Good meetup is graciously being hosted by Pamela Slim at her small business development center, K'e. K’é is a physical space in downtown Mesa that hosts the The Main Street Learning Lab, which is a community based leadership development lab that supports and strengthens the work of diverse entrepreneurs – especially entrepreneurs of color and their allies.

Contributing to our discussion will be Ricardo Nieland. Mr. Nieland is an assistant researcher in the Embodied Games virtual reality lab with Mina C. Johnson. Ricardo has been practicing meditation for 2 years and helps run the Bhakti Yoga Club and SKY@ASU at Arizona State University. Both clubs practice breathing exercises to calm/clear the mind to enter the meditative state and have discussions on yogic knowledge. Ricardo would like to make virtual reality a tool to help people get into the meditative state.
