Whether you’re craving a 5-minute meditation or relaxing in the metaverse for a while, Tripp VR meditation has revolutionized meditation and then some.
Having already garnered prestigious awards such as Time Magazine’s “Best Inventions of 2022,” a Lumiere Award for “Best Use of Virtual Reality for Health and Wellbeing,” and a CES 2022 Innovation Award for “Best Innovations in Health and Wellness,” Tripp is a game-changer for what we consider “contemplation”.
The wellness app, available on Meta Quest 2 (formerly Oculus Quest 2), PlayStation VR2 and smartphone, combines immersive virtual reality gaming with captivating, engaging world views, transporting you away from your apartment and into a diverse world of legendary adventures. I meditate regularly and think Tripp has perfected a guided meditation for beginners, intermediate and advanced people looking for temporary relief from everyday reality.
If I recommended one health and wellness app this year, it’s this one. Read on to find out what happened when I tested Tripp VR meditation for Meta Quest 2 and why I was officially stunned.
Tripp describes themselves as “agents of personal transformation” and “the metaverse’s trusted digital wellness platform” focused on matters of the mind. Forget what you know about meditation as Tripp VR guides you on a journey through realms to find your version of zen using a wealth of research and resources.
The app hosts more than 100 immersive mindfulness experiences using a series of breathing exercises, soothing audio, and guided visualization tailored to your mood, which you can select each day. The demo is free, but a subscription will cost you just $7.99 and includes frequently updated content and a daily two-part mindfulness practice called Focus + Calm.

I slipped on my Meta Quest 2 headset and gently pulled into the knife. Here’s why I’m rating Tripp VR for meditation whether you meditate or not.
1. It was built from scientific research
Far from its suite, Tripp has developed a meditation platform based on Research (Opens in a new tab). A wide range of studies have shown that mindfulness meditation can improve working memory, attention, mood, and well-being, as well as reduce anxiety, symptoms of depression, and stress levels.
One study published in Search portal (Opens in a new tab) He specifically assessed VR brainstorming using the Tripp app. It found significant improvements in attention and working memory after 21 days of daily use among the participants.
Studies on meditation and emotional well-being are constantly increasing. And Evidence (Opens in a new tab) Deep, rhythmic breathing has been consistently shown to help control the rate of breathing and move the body from the parasympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic nervous system—from responding to stress and elevated cortisol levels to feeling deeply calm and relaxed. bingo.
2. I felt calmer
I have a lifelong relationship with meditation, but it has not been an easy journey. Countless times I sat down, eyes closed, goodbye in my lap, doing anything possible to stop my thoughts or ignore the itch in my thighs. It took me a while to realize that meditation is what you want it to be.
Some people may turn to expert Deepak Chopra for mindfulness meditation sessions, but I found Tripp stimulated my need for active participation in the process—I wanted to meditate without meditating. It’s the perfect solution if (like me) you struggle to sit still still. I can access Dreamscapes designed to put me to sleep or use gameplay mechanics that require me to direct graphics by gently moving my head. During one session, I had to move towards the “bonus coins” scattered across the screen while avoiding obstacles.
There’s a lot to look at, too. Whether hovering over an idyllic ocean under the Milky Way or gliding through a kaleidoscope landscape – I’m never bored of exploring.
3. The journey is personal
I spent most of my time looking around in awe. Fluttering birds and twinkling stars surrounded me. As I was breathing in, a trace of light appeared to appear in my chest, and as I was exhaling, I breathed the light away.
Tripp uses the basics of meditation and builds on them. Did I want to feel more focused? calm? Energetic? I can report my mood before each session and tailor a personalized experience depending on how I felt or wanted to feel. Tripp then checked in before and after, asking me to rate my feelings on a scale of 1 to 10. I can track progress using the partner app, keeping tabs on my daily sessions.
Meditation is universal, but the methods that work for each person are very personal. Tripp brings out what it means to meditate, elevating it with stunning graphics, beautiful sound, and plenty of personal adventures to indulge in. It’s my new favorite mindfulness app and a strong health and wellbeing contender to watch out for.
