SKIP THE 15-HOUR FLIGHT TO BALI AND BRING THE WELLNESS RETREAT EXPERIENCE INTO YOUR HOME WITH THIS TECH-ENABLED MEDITATION DOME THAT BATHES ITS USERS IN A SEA OF LIGHT, SOUND, AND HEALING ENERGY

BY AMANDA McCOY

Meditation boasts a myriad of potential mental health benefits, from boosting focus and sleep quality to reducing stress and anxiety. Tuning out of our constantly shuffling surroundings, however, can be a tall order that’s where Somadome comes in. The tech-enabled pod uses light and color therapy to reset the body’s state on a cellular level, vacillating between different hues, each offering a specific healing property. Every session begins and ends with white, believed to promote balance, harmony, and overall well-being. Violet, the color of transformation, stimulates immunity while green strengthens the nervous system and light blue alleviates stress. The lights are accompanied by a poetic melody of binaural beats, thought to affect the brain states of mood, attention, and perception of pain. Users can choose among guided tracks based on their goals for each session, from physical performance to focus and creativity.

Whatever your intention, the dome provides a true mental and physical retreat from the comfort of your living room.
