Mindful Gaming With Deepak Chopra
From nzherald.co.nz/Derrik J. Lang
Spiritual guru Deepak Chopra believes video games can accelerate neural development and biological evolution.
At the end of a long day, many gamers zone out by competing in online death matches, or check out by escaping to virtual realms. Spiritual leader Deepak Chopra – who is in Auckland this week – is hoping gamers will instead choose to chill out with Leela, his ambitious new effort to combine gaming and meditation.
“I personally believe that you can accelerate neural development and biological evolution through video games,” said Chopra. “Unfortunately, that’s not what we’re doing right now. What we’re doing is creating addictions to violence, adrenaline and mindlessness, rather than mindfulness. That was my personal motivation to get involved in this medium.”
