Loving Meditations was founded by Tamara J. Green, LCSW and David Dachinger. Tamara is a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and meditation facilitator. David is a Grammy® nominated composer and a stage-4 cancer survivor. As a caregiver and patient they lived through cancer diagnosis and treatment including scans, radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. Their journey led them to discover growing scientific research demonstrating how meditation and mindfulness can improve patient stress.
Use your wait time productively! The average doctor's appointment takes 121 minutes, including 64 minutes waiting for care or filling out forms; only 20 minutes is typically spent actually seeing a doctor. (Harvard Medical School)

Ratings and Reviews
Of great Help!
I started using Loving Meditations today, after many years of using other platforms. The quality of the sound and of the images is outstanding. Tamara Green's voice is so calming and soothing, that one changes its state of stress immediately after starting to listen to the Meditation. I am completely impressed about what Tamara and David Dachinger are accomplishing in one's body and mind with their Loving Meditations. Thank you so much for caring the ones that most need it.
Instant calm, peace that also stayed with me
The soothing guiding voices, music, imagery, and special vocals of these meditations and offerings instantly take me out of my own troubles and into a peaceful, even exhilarated state. I resonate with this app especially because the creators “walk the walk” and know how hard things can be navigating a broken life, or what seems broken or challenging. I recommend for everybody as well- everyone will benefit from the content.
Bringing such a gift to those going through cancer. Tamara and David put their heart and soul into this app. Having lived through this themselves, their love and empathy is evident. This is a crucial piece of the healing journey. What a blessing!
