I've played Leela twice now and each time I'm impressed with how relaxing it is. It is a video game for the Wii, but it's about meditation, breathing, and peace.

More games should be like this.

I've been playing this a little bit daily and it is quite nice. It draws you in slowly into each game and also has guided meditation as well.

I do recommend this game for anyone who wants to practice meditation skills.

Once you play the various sub-games you unlock a final game which is a "floating through gates in the sky" game which literally can go on forever. It helps you learn how to focus.

The game is not about Deepak, he is only the creator of it. It is about engaging in visual / audio activities to build focus skills. So there are no videos of him for example.

Dear Illusive -

That's interesting, I don't think I've seen any ads from any sort of meditation person. The only even related ad I can remember is when they used to have a lot of Dianetics ads running.

With all the silly beer ads there are on TV, I'd like it if we had more ads on for meditation and peaceful activities!

Maybe we'll get one during the Super Bowl. But I bet they'll mostly be for beer, and involve half naked women for GoDaddy ...

I bet researchers could do a study on our society based on the types of ads we are being shown.

We're not shown peaceful ads about harmony and serenity and relaxing by a lake, generally.

We're shown ads with mostly naked women guzzling beer, men ogling the women, and Viagra. And fast cars.

Maybe eventually our society will evolve some more so those aren't our prime interests.

I'll do a count of superbowl ads, to see what categories they fall into! Interestingly the only ones that spring to mind as being ones I love for their quite love are the Budweiser horse commercials, like the one with the horse running with his cow friend, or the WTC one. So those are still beer ads.

so you would prefer wine ads ..those things are a part of life and selling a line of a product ..you wouldnt expect to see a beautiful palm beach sunset for a beer ad that would be more like a travel agency...i just see it for what it is and dont read more into them ...take it for what the intention is ...i dont try to see negativity

Ah but actually the Corona commercials are exactly about sitting on a beach with a sunset, and embracing that relaxation smile So I love Corona commercials! They are about seeking out serenity no matter what is going on around you.

I did keep track of the commercials for the superbowl - and I loved that Madonna ended her show with a lovely choir song and the message of world peace!! Fantastic!

I'll make up a thread for the commercials.
