The more we learn about meditation, the more we’re beginning to understand just how powerful a practice it can be.
Most people associate meditation with deep breathing and relaxation exercises. But in reality, this practice is adaptive and multi-disciplinary.
Mindvalley wanted to create a new way to incorporate meditation into your modern, busy life.
So, what did we come up with?
Introducing Soulvana: Mindvalley’s meditation app for Android and iOS.
What Is Soulvana?
Soulvana is Mindvalley’s newest meditation app that combines scientifically-proven technique with the convenience of a handheld app.
It can be tough to find time to squeeze in a meditation practice. We’re all busy and finding time to sit down and meditate can be a big ask.
But that’s the beauty of Soulvana. Having access to this app means you can take your practice with you on the go.
So, the real question is: what makes Soulvana unique?
We’re introducing Soulvana as something that goes above and beyond a meditation app.
Well, Soulvana offers the ability to connect to online group meditations. And this form of meditation has been proven to have staggering effects.
What Are The Benefits Of Group Meditation?
Group meditation has been studied in a number of different contexts. Each time, it’s shown to have multiple benefits, at the personal level and beyond.
Group meditation has been shown to help practitioners literally tap into the same brainwaves. If you’ve ever tried binaural beats, you know how powerful this practice can be.
Meditating with others also helps you stay accountable.
When you’re practicing on your own, it’s a lot easier to phone it in. Maybe you’re tired, distracted, or just plain don’t feel like it today.
When you meditate with others, you increase your accountability and are more likely to stick with the habit.
You’ll also increase your empathy and awareness, along with all the other powerful benefits of meditation.
It’s really a win-win situation for everyone.
Participate In The Ripple Effect
Perhaps one of the most astounding results of group meditation is what’s called, “the ripple effect.”
This effect was first discovered by those studying practitioners of transcendental meditation (TM) in the 1970s. Since then, the study results have been replicated on numerous occasions by different groups.
Studies have demonstrated that when groups meditate together, there is an physical increase in peacefulness in the surrounding community. Crime rates drop in the surrounding areas and there are less motor vehicle accidents. Incredible.
With our online group meditations, you can connect and meditate with thousands of people from all over the world — from the comfort of your home. The benefits and positive effects are 10x more powerful than typical solo meditation.
Do you feel ready to take the benefits of your meditation practice to new heights? Mindvalley’s new Soulvana App is ready to take you there.
