Wisdom is the embodiment of truth
The WisdomVR Project is the realization and preservation of the intergenerational experiences that bring humanity closer to itself.
It’s an opportunity for viewers to put on the headset and share the timeless presence of being with another person who's sharing their story.
It’s an experience a viewer exits knowing another more intimately and in turn, may gain insights about themselves.

Gary Yost’s background in art and technology combines filmmaking with the invention of 3D animation and visualization software. His unique experience spanning decades, provides the project the essential skillset required to bring these encounters to life.
Oculus, The Long Now Foundation, Ram Dass, Peter Coyote, Gavin de Becker and others fully endorse the project.
Recently virtual reality has become a truly workable medium. Virtual Reality headsets like the Oculus Go, Quest and Rift, HTC Vive and Vive Pro, Google Daydream and Samsung GearVR are now inexpensive and becoming ubiquitous. State of the art 3D/360° immersive cameras are now available for the first time.
We create fully-immersive experiences in which any person can be embodied with these important cultural icons who are sharing personal stories and teachings in their home environments.
