A series of guided meditations featuring nature sounds in which we exercise our creative and spiritual minds by using our imagination. In each meditation we take a virtual trip to a remote location and we imagine using all of our senses to create the complete experience in our own minds.

Wow- Relax Into Your Own Private World
I have to say I think this is one of the best series of guided mediations that I own!!!!! I did the 'Down the River' meditation yesterday, just randomly, and I'm still reeling about how calm it left me feeling-it made me want to go right back and repeat the experience! These meditations are great to tune in to whenever you're having a stressful day, no matter what is happening in your life. The nature sound effects are so incredibly realistic you literally do feel as though you are right there. I agree with my fellow reviewer about the voice being a litte monotonous but I personally found myself forgetting about it before long. What I like about this podcast is that it's very much about the individual experience; you are told what to try and see but only up to a point, it's up to you to make the experience your own. It's amazing that this is for free. I would definitely consider buying these nature sound effects from the Mood Streams website. Enjoy!!!!!
This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. However, the voice issue.... I appreciate this being free but the voice is boring and monotone, dull as can be. Maybe the best result is if I could find something similar spoken by a woman, then I would pay xxx amount. Again I appreciate these podcasts!
Best meditation podcast
This series is just wonderful; since I started listening a couple of weeks ago, I've been sleeping more soundly and feel more like I have the inner resources to cope with life.
I'm from the UK, so often find these things a bit too American, spiritual or cloying. However, Nguyen's voice is soothing, the monologue understated yet imaginative, and the sounds are varied and evocative without being intrusive.
'Down the River' is my favourite - I've listened to it several times now and it gets more vivid and relaxing every time. I'd recommend doing the 'Preparation for Meditation' track before every meditation getaway; this really deepens the experience.
