The app uses the strobe on your smart phone synchronized with Deepak's narration, holographic sounds and music. You experience this program with the strobe light pulsing through your closed eyelids.

HATFIELD, Mass., Sep. 27 /CSRwire/ - Deepak notes, “I have been meditating daily and teaching meditation for over 30 years. It’s one of the most important things one can do. I recommend meditation on a regular basis, once in the morning and evening.” Some of the most successful people in the world practice meditation such as Arianna Huffington, Russell Simmons, Orlando Bloom, Goldie Hawn, Tina Turner, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and many more.
“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. Many scientific studies provide evidence that meditation has profound effects on the mind-body physiology within just weeks of 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.”
“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.”
“The Dream Weaver is different in that it does not require anything of the user other than showing up. The Dream Weaver 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.” The programs include Deepak Chopra speaking and original music by his friend and co-author of Super Brain, Dr. Rudy Tanzi.
The Dream Weaver App ‘Virtual Trip to the Forest’ is available for $14.95 for iOS iPhones from Apple App store, through iTunes at smarturl.it/dreamweaveriphone and from Google Play for Android phones and tablets which have LED strobes at smarturl.it/dreamweaverandroid. Deepak’s YouTube video about the App can be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhqCugSRL4E.
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 you get the same programs, also for $14.95 each, but you 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.
