Muse App for Loving Kindness Meditation

#1

Greetings! After reading some of the early eeg studies on Tibetan monks doing compassion meditation, I think I know a way that an app could be created for Muse that could be used to entrain compassion and loving kindness meditation. I’ve been experimenting with Muse Monitor and I’m getting readings consistent with the research. I’m not a developer and can’t really write the necessary code. Anyone interested in collaboration?

Hi Mark,

I am a graduate student at San Jose State University, California, USA. Few of us here are working on developing tools to help meditate better and attain mindfulness. It would be great if we could discuss more about this.

Yes! i have read the book “stealing fire” and it talks about this and also Nuns that go into deep prayer and lose their sense of self. Not sure if the compassion meditation is the same- i think the compassion is a gamma wave type, but the Nun related loss of self is linked to decreased activity in the right temporal lobe (don’t quote me but i think thats the area)

I’m currently working on something that can allow me to see the different states - i.e. gamma, delta, alpha so that i can understand meditation more.

Dan Winter is working on an app http://www.flameinmind.com
