Meditation experience empowered by science and technology

The research, entitled The Home Within: Minimal Phenomenal Self (MPS), Phenomenal Existence and Meditation Neuro-engineering, will develop the world’s first technology platform that combines neuroscience and engineering with meditative practice and scholarship.

The platform will enable unprecedented research into meditation and aims to transform the field of meditation through its research projects, technology development and the application of neurotechnology in meditation studies.

Neuroscience and engineering

All Here has partnered with the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), a leading scientific and engineering institution in Switzerland, to launch a unique programme into self-consciousness and meditative practice.

It aims to develop, within three years, a meditation experience platform powered by immersive technology and neuroscience.

Discoveries and expected outcomes

The Home Within project’s results and discoveries, as well as the developed technologies and software, may eventually facilitate further technological and procedural developments, adaptations, and the dissemination of the new approach to the scientific community and for a potential technology transfer to the industry. 


New and immersive technologies

Building on the meditation practice and know-how program developed by All Here’s founder Erkin Bek, along with the cognitive neuroscience research and engineering work of Dr Olaf Blanke, who directs the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience, Brain-Mind Institute at EPFL, The Home Within platform will integrate VR technologies, automized movement and bodily simulations, with real-time tracking, animation and sense technologies, to study consciousness in meditation.

Creating new tools and practices for modern day meditation

The ultimate goal of the platform is for participants to learn meditation with modern tools of science & technology, and reach deep and transformative mental & emotional states that relate to their sense of existence, that are otherwise difficult or impossible to achieve. Findings from this research may lead to renewed definitions of MPS, potentially introducing new layers of existential self-consciousness, never before investigated scientifically.
