Feeling Systems: Using Meditation to Prepare Us For the Metaverse workshop -- VIRTUAL

This workshop will be given:
   Day 3: Sunday, 24-July-2022, 5:00pm - 5:30pm, Workshop C (D'Angelo 307) -- VIRTUAL

NOTE: You do NOT need to register to take this workshop -- please show up early to ensure a seat at Workshop C (D'Angelo 307).


NOTE: THIS IS A VIRTUAL WORKSHOP, but takes place live at A New HOPE

Advances occurring in spatial computing and new buzzwords like “metaverse” represent both tremendous opportunities and unprecedented challenges upon our “feeling” systems. As stakeholders in an ecosystem evolve to include people, machine, objects, and their environments, we can use mindfulness practices to manage stressors this virtual world may evoke.

Using mindfulness, we also can begin to anticipate and address developing questions of this new world order:

  • How do we create meaningful interactions/relationships in a digital world?
  • How do we identify and address trauma as analog and digital interactions become increasingly “seamless”?
  • How do we define “optimized processes” and apply analytics that give positive value to processes that may otherwise be defined as “inefficient”, e.g., pausing, looking, connecting? This workshop will invite participants to practice mindfulness techniques, which will include guided practice (in a seated or lying position); gentle movement (with modifications for seated practice), and vocal exercises as part of trauma-informed mindfulness practices.
