There's certainly no shortage of guided meditations online, especially as many consumers now see spiritual practices as an extension of their health routines. These guided meditations often take the form of audio files that are sometimes accompanied by relaxing visuals, but Guided Meditation VR sets itself apart from the rest by putting virtual reality technology to use. Guided Meditation VR is a relaxation app for the Gear VR—and soon, the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive—that provides a completely immersive and relaxing environment for meditation.
Although there are many apps that have helped to bring meditation into the mainstream, many people are still intimidated by the idea of having to sit down quietly and stay with their thoughts. Guided Meditation VR encourages people to ease into meditation without having to keep their eyes shut.
