For over 30 years, Dr. Carrie Heeter has been studying virtual reality and waiting for it to be the next big thing. And now it actually seems to be! However, these days she focuses more on internal than external simulations — meditation.

She also talks about her own meditation experiences, such as floating through space as a polymorph. Join us for this edifying episode, or even better, join Carrie in her meditation community here:
