What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Everyone has their own unique happy place. Early Access will allow our team time to include additional environments, meditations, teachers, and added functionality based on your feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to leave early access in late 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The core experience is one of simplicity: you, an environment, and a meditation. But we will more than double the number of environments and meditations, while debuting one-of-a-kind functionality.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Guided Meditation VR is the meditation app we always wished existed, even at its current state, with:
  • 27 environments hand-crafted for comfort. When we initially released this was 12.
  • Over 16 hours of custom meditation content. When we initially released we had 3 hours.
  • Exclusive features, like quick meditate, motion mode, and a music visualizer to relax within these environments.
  • Most meditations have 2 minute, 5 minute, and 10 minute variations, or users can choose no meditation audio to simply enjoy the sounds of nature.
  • Granular options for graphics quality, supersampling level, or volume (Meditation, Music, and Environment sliders). Based on feedback we include additional controls, tooltips, teleport colors, and much more.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the price as we launch fresh content and new functionality.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'd love the community's input on environments, meditations, customizable options, and functionality to improve your experience. We'll use this important feedback to prioritize new additions.”

\\\- Now Available: The Calm Pack -///

We're excited to announce the third update for Guided Meditation VR, called The Calm Pack. This is available now for 100% free!

TL;DR: tons of new features, environments, and Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality support.


The Calm Pack adds 5 new environments bringing our total to 27. Each space was made with love, based on your feedback. These environments are focused on softer and more personal spaces.

Lost Woods ///
Refresh your mind in this private lake retreat as the morning mists evaporate your worries.

Night Flowers ///
The rolling hills soak up the soft moonlight as you melt into the scenery.

Blackrose ///
Somewhere far away there is a heavy cloud blooming into a thunderstorm. Rest in the crisp rain and wash the troubles away.

Nokia Bay Night ///
Even the poppy jungle space of Nokia Bay needs a rest from the sun.

Aether ///
Leave Earth behind as you contemplate what's beyond the horizon of your every day in this alien landscape.


The Calm Pack brings some long-requested features.

Full Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality Support ///
Official Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality support. This includes not only the HMD, but also the Oculus Touch and the Windows MR Controllers as well. Pick any major VR HMD and enjoy.

Introduction Mode ///
This mode is a 15-minute journey through the environments set to an inspiring soundtrack. Perfect for the new user or those new to VR.

Radio Feature ///
Many people aren't fans of meditation. They prefer to relax to their favorite music instead. This is why we built the Radio feature, which pulls in external internet radio streams. We've included one sample radio station with licensed music, but you can add in any internet music stations you like in under 5 minutes.

Learn more by visiting

Visualizer Mode ///
For those that something different, we've created Visualizer mode. See your meditations, music, or radio stations in a fresh way.

Environment Updates ///
We've also revisited the environment art or image effects in many of the environments to better reflect the original vision.

This release includes hundreds of improvements, enhancements, and bug fixes:
  • Tooltips are now available by default for each mode. These support Oculus Touch, Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality controllers. Tooltips can be turned off in the options.
  • Teleport fade color can be changed in the options.
  • New Meditation Series: Relaxation. We got rid of the old and created a much improved version using Yoga Nidra.
  • New main menu environment.
  • Destroyed many tricky bugs.
  • Performance enhancements for some of the most intensive environments.


Last September we secretly released a massive content update without saying a word on Steam. In all truthfulness, this was part science experiment and part return to the days where game releases would contain undiscovered magic.

We called this the The Nature Pack. Click here to view the release trailer. This release included the environments below!

Lost Paradise ///
Your very own tropical private island awaits. Based off of Bora Bora, this mix of resort and wild will bring smiles.

Hanna Valley ///
Bask in the serenity of hidden a bamboo forest nestled under a waterfall at the gates of a forgotten valley city.

Subzero ///
Cool a heated mind within these ancient ice caverns.

Endless Ocean ///
Evening turns to magic as the bioluminescent plankton washes across the sandy shores of a mysterious island.

Horizon Dawn ///
Dusk covers the parched plains as you find peace in this clearing between sun-baked rocks.

Atlantis ///
Join a secret world brimming with life deep under the ocean waves and see the world through a new lens.


For those of you who have a mobile or standalone VR HMD, we recently released a version of Guided Meditation VR completely rewritten from scratch.

Download for Oculus Go

Download for Gear VR


Guided Meditation VR recently debuted on Xiaomi's MiVR. This was our first pass at app localization and we learned quite a bit. It has been a pleasure to help people across the world meditate in VR!


We believe people can live happier lives through virtual reality.

When we began this quest (way back in 2014!) the idea of using VR for personal wellness was a fantasy. What started as a way to escape a chilly Chicago Winter using the recently launched Oculus Rift Dev Kit 1 grew into something beyond our wildest dreams.

Thank you for joining us on this ride. Thank you for sharing ideas which have made the app better with each update. Thank you for challenging us to learn more and try harder, even when we thought it was impossible. We'll be forever grateful for the kind feedback and support we receive each day.

We're planning one final pack before we exit Early Access on Steam. And we want it to be our best yet. So, if you have ideas or suggestions please email us at We'd love to hear from you!

Thank you again and until next time!

Thoughts on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift DK2, Oculus Go, and Gear VR editions:

“Guided Meditation’ Proves That ‘VR Relaxation’ Will Almost Certainly Become Its Own Genre”
– Road to VR

"A brilliant way to clear your head of distractions and frustrations."
– Polygon

"Cubicle Ninjas might have just set out to relax the world with Guided Meditation VR, but their passion project could become a revolution [...]"

“When I removed the headset, I felt euphoric. Part of me had expected the experience to be an anti-climax, but instead, it had been a revelation […] My happy, creative mood lasted the rest of the day.”
– IDEO Stories

"If you’re new to meditation, and don’t have access to a class or a teacher, and you’re looking to learn some of the basics of a guided practice like loving-kindness, an app like Guided Meditation VR would help."
– Health

"Slowly, I let the pixelated environment float into my consciousness. I find my eyes resting on the lapping waves that reflect the clouds—a perfect visualization for a metaphor the narrator offers me, to think of my thoughts as clouds and let them pass."
– Fast Company

"Takes relaxation to high-tech levels."

"Turn it on and relax your body and soul."
