TitleDeep immersion with Kasina: an exploration of meditation and concentration within virtual reality environments
AuthorsMoseley, R.
Abstract

The matching of established meditation techniques and new technologies offer intriguing possibilities for exploring how particular states of mind can be enhanced and become an inducible target. The Kasina method of developing meditation skills can be utilized for exploring and enhancing such states within VR. A comparison of various techniques is involved, together with virtual immersion, entrainment and biofeedback through EEG, also known here as Deep Immersion.
