Embark on a journey to find your inner Zen as you wander through the event’s mandala of thoughtfully-crafted 3D builds, pictured above.

The Monkey and the Moon by Cansy

Calm the waters of an interactive meditation pool inspired by Japanese painter Ohara Koson. In this immersive new experience by designer Cansy, you’ll first wander along a Zen garden path, surrounded by bamboo and artfully-arranged stones. As you walk deeper into the garden, you’ll engage in deeply mindful activities from creating spiral patterns in pebbles to participating in reflective tea ceremonies. Your journey will culminate in a meditative experience under the moonlight.

MetaParty Vibes Mesmerizing Meditation Space

Relax at The MetaParty Vibes Mesmerizing Meditation Space. More than just a digital retreat; “it's an immersive, interactive, and multi-sensory experience designed to transport you into a realm of digital tranquility.” This innovative 3D environment, a brainchild of developers Dogman and Rub_qbe from House of Tang, was brought to life under the artistic vision of streamer and community-host Bleace. In a blend of art and technology, the MetaParty Vibes Space features two specially designed Wearables. Join concerts, chats and specially-created immersive meditation performances at 6pm UTC (1pm EST) each day. 

Nirvana Oasis by OVA.DESIGN

Experience the unique floating architectural design of the Nirvana Oasis, an acoustic environment which transforms through kinetic movements within its spatial design. Specially crafted by architectural practice OVA to promote wellness, the build provides a serene sanctuary for mental rejuvenation and finding your inner balance. “Immerse yourself in the serene dance of stillness, where the soul floats weightlessly in the tranquil embrace of inner peace.”

ASCLEPIEION by OgiWorlds

Encounter “The Shard of the Silicon Sage”, a digital creation born from the infusion of ancient wisdom and visionary insights into the very fabric of artificial intelligence. It stands as your ethereal meta-guide within the Meditation Chamber.

Mindful Reflection: The Metaverse Empty Chair Coaching Experience

Immerse yourself in a unique virtual experience crafted by architect Negar Hekmati, developer Pooya Panahandeh, and Master Certified Coach Iman Abrishamchi. This collaboration focuses on well-being and cognitive defusion, exploring the separation of inner voices from our true selves. The centerpiece, the Mindful Reflection Pavilion, is a twisted cube representing Hekmati's personal introspections. Each layer reflects different aspects of the designer's identity, forming a transparent, multidimensional structure. Part of the cube is intentionally deformed, symbolizing the overpowering negative internal voices. This space challenges visitors to introspect, paralleling the transformative coaching sessions hosted there.

Inner-Avatar Memory Trainer by Proteus

Explore the Inner-Avatar Memory Trainer for innovative metaverse methods to enhance memory. Designer Proteus emphasizes the significance of short, long, and the elusive mid-term memory. Unlike the rote training for short and long-term memory, mid-term memory requires exercises that minimize conscious interference. This Memory Trainer features advanced socio-technological tools, including N-Back techniques. Proteus advocates that metaverse platforms are ideal for delivering these exercises and motivating continuous engagement in memory improvement.

A Little Rain Must: A 3D Experience by warrragwag 

A Little Rain Must is a snippet from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "The Rainy Day", where the complete line reads: "Into each life some rain must fall,". The building rises from the ground via stylised tree-like structures which seemingly carry huge boxes above them. Inside you’ll find four different rooms, each one with a button that recites a Metta mantra: May I be well. May I be peaceful. May I be at ease. May I be filled with loving kindness.
