Delta Yoga Studio Owner Endangers Public With COVID-19 Insanity

  • Post Category:news

B.C, C.A—Delta Yoga Studio owner Mak Parhar endangers public health with absolutely insane COVID-19 insanity. Delta Yoga Studio was closed down recently after its owner, Mak Parhar, sent members an email stating that Bikram yoga kills coronavirus.  At the time, public officials stated that his claim was potentially dangerous. Hot Yoga actually creates an atmosphere that is ideal for the novel coronavirus to spread. Although Harvard and other health organisations have stated that there are benefits of yoga for coronavirus, practicing hot yoga in a group setting is certainly not the answer. Because of the threat to public health, officials…

How To Use Meditation To Stop Time & Make It Faster Or Slower

  • Post Category:news

New research has revealed that meditation affects our perception of time, self and space, creating feelings of selflessness and timelessness. It is possible to use meditation to stop time, or to make it pass faster or slower. Time is a subjective matter. When we are anxious or depressed, time seems to pass slowly. When we are happy or excited, time seems to pass quickly. And so, our experience of time is inherently linked to our emotions in the present moment. Mindfulness meditation, or Vipassana (a Theravada Buddhist tradition) creates control of emotion, and thereby changes the way we perceive time.…

  • Post Category:news

California, U.S—A resort in California is offering a retreat from coronavirus self isolation, with yoga, meditation, wellbeing activities, and more. If you’re bored of being stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic, you can always book a holiday to Southern California, where a resort is offering a luxurious retreat to get away from the coronavirus situation—although you should also be warned that California has one of the highest rate of COVID-19 anywhere in the world, with more than 10,000 deaths, so I’m not sure how smart a decision this would be. There's a total lack of respect for the pandemic…

This AI Is The Future Of Meditation And It’s Insane

  • Post Category:news

A mind-reading AI (Artificial Intelligence) that turns thoughts in your mind into words could be the future of meditation technology and therapy. A new artificial intelligence can accurately translate words in an individual’s mind into sentences. The AI currently supports 250 words. It is actually designed to be used as a way for people who have lost speech ability because of paralysis to regain that skills. However, there are direct ways in which this technology could be applied to cognitive behavioural therapy, and could, in coming years, form the basis of the future of meditation technology.

SoundSelf is a VR meditation game that the developer, Andromeda Entertainment, tells us will feature a “technodelic transformative meditation experience”. Sounds funky!

Either they represent a genuinely significant step forward for mindfulness (like Headspace, for instane), or they are simply a commercial cash-in on the current trend (like we recently saw with the release of the Mindful…
