How do we use technology to deepen our self-agency, to enhance our humanity? Melissa will take us through a deep dive into the potential of extended reality (XR) technologies to challenge for-granted ways of being and offer opportunities for renewal and growth. This talk will explore the latest research in XR, mindfulness, gamification and psychedelic-assisted therapy as a nexus for the creation of ‘cyberdelics’. Cyberdelics involve immersive and bespoke virtual environments that encourage exploration of the psyche to develop self-mastery and intentionality in life. This talk will explore key experience design targets and showcase a brief cyberdelic experience.
