Wild Divine manufactures and sells hardware (the iom) along with interactive software that allows users to explore the mind-body connection in real time. The iom is a consumer electronic device that uses finger sensors to transmit, in real-time, your levels of stress, tension, excitement, or calmness to the software installed on your PC or Mac.
Depending on the desired outcome, your thoughts, emotions, levels of stress, tension, or excitement cause things to change on the computer screen. Some training events may require you to meditate and relax, others will ask you to raise your energy level. It's all about learning to use your mind and body to maximize your quality of life.
The iom is cutting edge feedback technology. The iom is about the size of an iPod with three comfortable fingertip sensors, and connects to a PC or Mac via a USB port. The fingertip sensors transmit, in real-time, your levels of stress, tension, excitement or calmness. The iom is the lightstone's replacement.
We have a growing selection of software titles to use with the iom and the lighstone:
The Passage is an adventure "gaming" style format, and Wisdom Quest is an expansion pack for The Passage. Relaxing Rhythms and Secrets of Meditation are guided training programs, where you are lead through steps by experts who explain the concepts, guide you through practices, and then you can use the feedback hardware to put your knowledge into action.
The lightstone was the first version of our feedback hardware, and has been replaced with the iom. All Wild Divine software works with both the iom and Lightstone, but the Lightstone has been discontinued in favor of the iom and is no longer available.
Yes! Zen Journey is our next full title, and be on the lookout for WildDivineOnline.com, a new and revolutionary way of accessing the world that is Wild Divine.

The feedback programs can give you more awareness of your own internal states of consciousness. Other possible benefits include the potential for a clearer state of mind, heightened powers of imagination, greater understanding of the mind/body connection, reduced feelings of stress, and more energy and relaxation, focus.
The feedback portion of the iom hardware has a well-proven scientific basis. It was developed in collaboration with some of the leading experts in the country, in particular, we chose those whose work emphasized optimal human performance, such as Liana Mattulich, M.D., Dr. Bob Whitehouse, and Sunny Turner. According to Dr. Bob Whitehouse, a psychologist and biofeedback expert who consulted on the game, feedback uses electronic equipment to monitor a person's internal physiological states and gives feedback that helps the recipient learn how to control these states, to activate balance, release or to recover from them. Others that contributed to The Wild Divine are Jean Houston, a pioneer researcher in human capacities, Nawang Khechog, a former Buddhist monk and one of Tibet's foremost world music composers and musicians, and Liana Mattulich, an M.D. and biofeedback expert.
