Abstract

Therapeutic effects of Mindfulness meditation practices in clinical interventions, specifically in the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, chronic and acute pain are scientifically well founded. Mindfulness is increasingly being supported by technology and among various interventions immersive VR seems rather peculiar due to its ability to improve decentering and interoceptive awareness. A systematic review on Virtual Reality supported Mindfulness is currently being published. In this paper, some preliminary results of this review are presented, also providing a brief discussion about a possible evolutionary technological trend, on the basis of the input and output perceptual domains exploited.
