Happy Friday, glad to have you here. I have some great updates and titles for you to check out this week; let’s dive right in!
A QUESTION I HAVE BEEN PONDERING
What is the modern sanctuary?
From festivals to biohacking spas, we are witnessing the emergence of a new place to connect with ourselves and each other, that is both authentically modern and authentically Western. How are traditionally unspiritual pursuits like technology and business a part of this contemporary vision? How is this vision already bubbling through? And what can we do to help institutionally support it?
Speaking of, check out this new space in LA that I’ll be heading to in the next few weeks.
TITLES WE HAVE OUR EYES ON
Lucid Dreaming inside of Virtual Reality?! As a kid, and even through college, I was obsessed with accessing and controlling my dream world. I read books, drank special tea, and had night time rituals that put me into a dream world that I had power over.
I say to this day it started me on my spiritual journey. This title seems to make this world more accessible, unlocking parts of the imagination we could only have dreamed of.
Alan Watts is in my top 3 Buddhist masters. He can take the world beyond language and distill it into bite sized chunks of wisdom that is delicious to chew on. This VR title allows you to see the fundamental principles behind “as above, so below”, with Alan narrating. If you don’t know, now you know.
August 25 – September 2 | John McClellan, our CFO, Alexa, our social media guru , and I will be at Burning Man in a few shorts days! Come find me at Red Lightning 5 o’clock and Esplanade – ask for Lyle and someone will point you in the right direction.
September 25-26 | Our team will be in the Bay Area exploring the latest in VR , with a few quests to demo our titles and create a lot of smiles. In the area? Let me know and I’ll connect you with our team members there.
LATEST WITH ANDROMEDA
While our main focus is publishing our first title, AudioTrip, in the upcoming months, we have also been focused on the other side of the company, expanding our pipeline through non traditional distribution. This means corporate offices, spas, therapy centers, immersive art exhibits, and education programs.
We will soon be announcing a few exciting partnerships on this front. We can’t wait to share more!
LATEST WITH OUR TITLES
GROUPFLOW BRINGS A MUCH WELCOMED EXTRA DIMENSION TO OUR WORK ON INTIMACY AND CONNECTION. HEARING ANOTHER HUMANS BREATH AND HEART BEAT CREATES A DEEPENED CONNECTION TO OURSELVES AND ONE ANOTHER. I LOVED EXPERIMENTING WITH THE INTERSECTION OF HUMAN CONNECTION AND TECHNOLOGY AND FOUND GROUPFLOW SO VALUABLE.
--MICHAELA BOEHM, AUTHOR, INTIMACY & RELATIONSHIP TEACHER
We are excited to start integrating them into our events, location based installations, and our company as a whole.
The last AudioTrip teaser video was just that, a small teaser, for us to try out our new in-studio MR setup. Over the past few weeks we have brought in incredible b-boys, shufflers, and flow artists.
And of course, we can’t forget about our marketing ninja SwanVR who put out a Beatsaber MR video last year to the tune of 100 Million views. We believe she can catch lightening in a bottle twice!
The trailer will be dropping in the next couple weeks, stay tuned.
