Deepak Chopra Introduces Dream Weaver App for Smartphones with Strobe Lights, Making It Easy to Experience the Benefits of Meditation & Deep Relaxation Automatically

Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

The Chopra Center announced today the launch of the new Deepak Chopra Dream Weaver app for iPhones and Androids to meditate, relax and dream instantly. The Dream Weaver app uses the strobe on a smartphone synchronized with Deepak’s narration, holographic sounds, and original music. Users experience this program with the strobe light pulsing through closed eyelids.

“We are excited to make the powerful technology of Dream Weaver available in this new app, which makes it easy to meditate any time, anywhere in the world,” said Chopra Center co-founder Deepak Chopra. “As a growing body of scientific studies shows, meditation offers profound benefits for physical health and emotional well-being – including stress reduction, decreased blood pressure and heart disease, alleviation of depression and anxiety, chronic pain and many other health issues.”

Deepak Chopra noted, “Anyone can learn to meditate and the benefits are both immediate and long-term. You can begin to experience benefits the first time you sit down to meditate and in the first few days of daily practice. For example, a landmark study led by Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital found that as little as eight weeks of meditation not only helped people experience decreased anxiety and greater feelings of calm; it also produced growth in the areas of the brain associated with memory, empathy, sense of self, and stress regulation.”

“I have been meditating daily and teaching meditation for over 30 years because it is one of the most important things one can do for physical health, emotional well-being, and the cultivation of creativity, happiness, and balance. I recommend meditation on a regular basis, once in the morning and evening, ” Dr. Chopra said.

There is a growing recognition of the value of meditation, and some of the most successful people in the world practice meditation, including Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Russell Simmons, Orlando Bloom, Goldie Hawn, Tina Turner, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and many others.

“While there is no substitute for authentic meditation, most wisdom traditions have evolved methods to help people achieve altered states and move towards the direction of transcendence such as chanting, kirtan, trance dance, etc. The rhythm of these wisdom tradition technologies actually slows people’s brain waves from their normal busy brain frequency we call Beta (13-30 cycles per second or Hz), to Alpha (8-13Hz) – meditation, Theta (4-8Hz) – deep relaxation and dreaming, and Delta (.5-4Hz) – dreamless sleep. Other cultures use peyote, ayahuasca, mushrooms and more recently LSD. One can also learn to control their brain waves through various neurofeedback technologies such as electroencephalograph, galvanic skin response, and heart, pulse and breath rates,” Deepak Chopra said.

“The Dream Weaver app is different in that it does not require anything of the user other than showing up. The app causes the LED strobe light on the smart phone to flash rhythmically from 20Hz to 0.5Hz. The experience is had with one’s eyes closed resulting in a meditative, relaxed or dream state depending on the program,” Dr. Chopra added.

The Dream Weaver App ‘Virtual Trip to the Forest’ is available for $14.95 for iOS iPhones from Apple App store, through iTunes at this link, and from Google Play for Android phones and tablets which have LED strobes at this link.

Deepak’s YouTube video about the App can be found at The original music on the Dream Weaver app was composed by Dr. Rudi Tanzi, a world renowned-neurologist and musician who co-authored the best-selling book “Super Brain” with Deepak Chopra.

The Deepak Chopra Dream Weaver light and sound mind machine has 16 LEDs, sells for $299 and comes with 9 Dream Weaver programs on disks. Additional program disks or downloads cost $14.95 each. With the Dream Weaver app, users receive the same programs, also for $14.95 each, but don’t need to buy the Dream Weaver machine. The app programs use the electronics built into Apple and Android smartphones with a single LED camera strobe to deliver the experience. People with photo-induced epilepsy should not use these programs.
