Deepak Chopra is widely known for his alternative medicine advocacy, but he’s also become a prominent figure in Web3 for finding ways to leverage emerging technology and the metaverse for good. Across his various projects, he has been steadily moving toward building a new way to bring his fans and followers together online.
Chopra first got into Web3 about two years ago when he teamed up with tech entrepreneur Poonacha Machaiah to launch Seva.Love, a digital platform and social good initiative that cultivates wellbeing within virtual worlds and creates NFTs to support its mission. Now, the New York Times best-selling author, Seva.Love, and Web3 ecosystem project Utopia have now come together to launch ChopraVerse: House of Enlightenment. This new metaverse environment that Chopra calls his virtual home is fully focused on wellness and features immersive meditation experiences, curated content in each room, NFT integrations, and more.
“Seva.Love gradually graduated to the metaverse,” Chopra told Boardroom in an exclusive interview. “We are slowly moving to real-time immersive experiences, where our digital lives and our lives in the physical world will merge into one reality.”
The ChopraVerse Origin Story
When Chopra was conceptualizing his metaverse experience, he asked himself a question: “Can we create a house where this kind of energy flows for every aspect of experience?” He’s speaking specifically about the layers of experience our bodies are connected to, from emotional to mindful to energetic moments.
Chopra hopes users will step into the ChopraVerse to design their own homes and create their own sacred spaces in order to connect with themselves further across the platform’s offerings.
