You may know Deepak Chopra for his many inspiring books, including The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and The Ultimate Happiness Prescription. A world-renowned expert on mind-body healing, Deepak Chopra has dedicated his life to helping people create joy and equanimity.
You might not know, however, that Deepak Chopra also makes video games. Well, sort of.
Recently Deepak Chopra partnered with the gaming company THQ to create a creative, fully interactive meditation and relaxation journey called Leela™.
From the email I received:
“Leela is the first of its kind to transform a popular gaming platform into a fully interactive mind-body experience. The program includes seven different meditations based on the seven chakras. Using Kinect’s hands-free system, Leela monitors your breath and offers feedback to help you refine your technique, deepen your relaxation and enhance your overall wellness.”
Since I don’t own a gaming system, I wasn’t able to try the game to provide an official review. However, I jumped on the opportunity to provide two games as a giveaway for you! This clearly isn't traditional meditation, but it could be a fun way to relax regardless.
Leela’s Key Features:
Rebalance and Revitalize. Leela invites you to utilize natural full body gestures to completely relax.
Chakra-based meditation. Through seven meditations and movements, Leela helps you focus and connect with specific areas of the body to relax and enter into your personal flow site.
Stillness in motion. Now for the first time ever, you can actually see and measure your breathing using Kinect technology. Leela displays the movement of your breath and provides gentle feedback and encouragement to enhance your meditation practice.
Create. Customize. Connect. Create and customize your own personal mandala—artwork that expresses and individual’s unique essence and intentions. The personal mandala is a visual meditation woven throughout Leela that can be shared with friends on Facebook.
Wellness made personal. Leela encourages us to explore our natural rhythms and thoughts to cultivate a more creative, harmonious and balanced life through play.
