Each gathering in the MindWise Flow Camp metaverse offers immersion, resonance, and a focus on the themes of shadows, darkness and light.

Learn how Designing Wonder is transforming XR experiences:
Designing Wonder is all about world dreaming and experience building.
As a guide, Caitlin Krause shows how to create XR experiences that have emotional resonance and impact. Talking about The VR Hero’s Journey, applied mindfulness and neuroscience, and Maslow, Bloom, James and more, Caitlin Krause introduces a new framework for how to design meaningful experiences filled with wonder and awe.
Designing Wonder concepts and methodology is about experience design, reaching everyone from corporate training leaders to educators and those who organize social groups in VR. With expert guidance about how to connect and thrive as you design experiences for yourself and others, Caitlin’s accompanying book, Designing Wonder, includes a section of interviews with leaders & researchers in fields of cognitive science, UX and learning design.
These experiences, trainings and readings are filled with ideas and stories that you can apply to your own design, leadership and life. If you’re passionate about VR and XR collaboration, as well as new opportunities in spatial immersive tech, Designing Wonder is created with you in mind.

Thank you to everyone who joined the Designing Wonder BOOK LAUNCH CELEBRATION! We had a full house, and it was such an inspiring time together, with audience Q&As and a lot of examples and exercises from the book.
There are wonder-themed workshops, talks, interactive sessions and mindfulness meditations happening on a weekly basis, so stay tuned for updates, as announcements about Designing Wonder and events are posted daily on socials (Twitter / LinkedIn / Instagram).
More about MindWise XR experiences, empowering you to connect with your purpose and presence
MindWise workshops, books, guides and experiences take learning and leadership to new levels. The focus is on honing presence and connection, empowering you to build skills in social-emotional intelligence, compassion, voice and storytelling as vehicles that you can use to transform your work and personal life.
Learn how we can work together 1:1, or how I can lead a training for your team. My recent events included the themes “Leading with Mindful Presence,” “Storytelling and Leadership by Design,” and “XR Collaboration.”
The three prime outcomes are improved relationships, wellbeing, and imagination capacity (the ability to have a creative, innovative mindset). Talk with me to discover how these sessions and methodology can meet your needs in this period of immense complexity and change.
Part of a series of MindWise XR offerings, my immersive training experiences are typically 90-minutes, and apply research-based practices in neuroscience, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, design thinking and storytelling for mastering XR leadership, learning and collaboration.
A note on tech and supported devices: You do not have to have a VR headset device to participate in MindWise XR trainings. Some XR trainings can be in a 2D environment (Zoom, for example), and for VR (virtual reality) experiences, while the experience is best using a HMD (head-mounted device), it’s also possible to join via a 2D desktop (in which case, you will want to use headphones to avoid an echo). I will train you and your team to make sure you’re all set to connect and learn valuable practices!
Feeling grounded, inspired, renewed and centered allows us to have greater capacity to innovate, create, reflect and forge powerful relationships with our teams, collaborators, learners and audiences. These skills are critical to our leadership and well-being, especially in times of heightened anxiety and stress. Virtual Reality is the ideal place to practice this type of connection, using mindfulness and social-emotional development, inside-out. I’ve designed MindWise Experiences focused on best practices in mindful leadership, creative mindsets, well-being and empowered connection. Hear what participants have shared, and follow updates here!
There are events individuals can attend, and there are custom experiences offered for individuals and teams who would like deeper engagement. So, for those new to these trainings: they hinge on connection! Read about one recent session and stay tuned for news about upcoming events.
I wrote about “why mindfulness in VR is different than anything you’ve felt before” in this article, and will be continuing to run sessions that educators and community from all over the world can join.
