TORONTO (Reuters) - A new smartphone app aims to ease stress and guide users through meditation by monitoring brain waves that change as people become more relaxed.
" "It doesn't matter whether you're meditating as part of a secular practice, or spiritual practice. It all creates the same change in the brain," said Chad Veinotte, a director of the company, which launched the app last month."
The 21st century's mantra is without a doubt "there's an app for that." Creative people around the globe see a need and boom they create an app.
Well now there is an app that monitors your brain waves while you are meditating as a way of helping you deepen your practice. I'm not sure if Buddha would have used it had it been around 2500 years ago but I'm inclined to think he would at the very least tried it out.
It's easy to get caught up in our thoughts and think we are traveling correctly on the path of a deeper meditation. Well maybe getting a little feedback might give us a hand on that path... Something to think about.
