Awen is the Celtic word for “inspiration”. We believe that being inspired can lead to greater emotional awareness and understanding. Inspiration has the power to bring about an "emotional awakening" in people, which can lead to a positive impact on the world.
We are inspired by the experience of awe, and how this feeling is connected to the mental health and emotional well-being that a person can feel. In the last decade, research on positive emotions has shown that experiencing awe is associated with transformative changes at both psychological and physiological levels. We will harness the power of awe and create new healing experiences in our revolutionary VR worlds. Awen has synchronized itself with the coming XR revolution, providing an approach that is to forever change and evolve the mental health landscape. Awen intends to use innovation in digital technologies (XR, AI, Biofeedback and more) to create ever evolving solutions aimed at supporting humans’ emotional well being in the digital and real world.
Our vision is to make this experience accessible to all. We want to create a world where every young person can have the tools to self-regulate their emotions, and maintain a clear and enhanced mental state. Good mental health and emotional well-being is our main concern, and we are designing a tool to help with the struggles of everyday life. We want those who use our product to leave with a sense of radical calm instilled in them, to carry throughout their day. We are inspired to explore the future of mental health as our species evolves into the digital age. With the use of a VR headset, which will soon become as prevalent as the mobile phone, anyone young and old will be able to take the time to alleviate their anxiety and stress.
