We make rituals

Our rituals are not apps nor games but a revolutionary new category of human-computer interaction built by and for love.

To imagine caring technology that intrinsically cultivates compassion and creativity in ourselves and each other, we've imagined an organization and an ecosystem that follow the same principles. 

Our team looks through lenses of social neuroscience, adult developmental psychology, depth psychology, game design, AI, ancient wisdoms and other areas of expertise across cultures and philosophies from the perspectives our own lived experiences as marginalized people. As we co-create, test and iterate we use a combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis to expand our experiences and hone our intuitions. 

Our resulting model is a beautiful alternative to the gamification model and has deep implications.
