A JOURNEY THROUGH WATER

 

Featuring Mädchen Amick

Greetings Earthlings. This is Mädchen Amick. Because I care about all things mental wellness, I'd like to take you on a very special meditation journey through water... Did you know that our beautiful earth's surface is 71% H2O? Maybe this is why I have such a special connection to water sounds. We start in Costa Rica's Osa Penninsula...

THE GENTLE WINDS OF MARIPOSA GROVE
 

Featuring Constance Zimmer

I’d like to take you on a journey to an oasis of serenity located on the southern tip of Yosemite National Park. A place where millennia old Sequoias stand tall and proud. A place called Mariposa Grove. It’s late spring and the winter snow has long since melted. The sun, still climbing in a near cloudless sky of cornflower blue creates a warm, dappled light as it filters through the canopy. The soothing sound of a delicate breeze fills the air as it makes its way through the gathering of trees. Before you immerse yourself in the moment, I’d like you to focus briefly on your breathing. As you do, you will slowly feel yourself becoming calmer… more relaxed… more at peace. All it needs is for you to control the rate at which your chest rises and falls… leisurely… rhythmically… unrushed. Breathing in… 2… 3… and releasing… 2… 3… Breathing in… 2… 3… and releasing… 2… 3… As you enter the grove, you feel the ground beneath your feet. You feel rooted and strong. You look around and pause. Ancient Sequoias rise majestically into the California sky. Trees stretching 300 feet high, poised like trusted guardians, within a magnificent living temple…watching over you. There for your safe keeping. You feel a calming reverence. ..

THE RIVER AND THE WREN
 

Featuring Maggie Wheeler

I’d like to take you to a very special place. A peaceful place. A place where the tranquil waters of an ancient river have meandered their way through the English countryside for hundreds of years. As you embark upon this journey, allow yourself to become completely immersed in the moment by focussing on your breathing. All you need to do is just gently inhale… 2… 3… and release… 2… 3… Inhale… 2… 3… Release… 2… 3… With each rise and fall of your chest..as you breathe slowly, evenly and deeply, you will gradually find yourself becoming more and more relaxed. It’s early May, the sky is a magnificent shade of powder blue and the hallmarks of spring are all around you. To reach the river, we first pass through a meadow, resplendent in colour. Yellow buttercups…. Blue forget-me-nots…. White daisies…. Purple violets…. We enter by way of an old wooden kissing gate. A line of oak and beech trees stand strong along the river’s edge and we start to hear the distant sound of birdsong. Calling to you. Welcoming you...

A WALK THROUGH THE BLUEBELL WOOD
 

Featuring Kyle MacLachlan

I’d like to take you on a journey through an enchanting ancient woodland located in the heart of the English countryside. Since 1275, the year in which local legend first makes mention of its existence, it has managed to remain unscathed by mankind’s progress. Home for many forms of wildlife, over the centuries, it has also been a place where countless souls have gone to find peace, comfort and inspiration. Imagine, if you will, all those souls in whose footsteps you are about to tread. We begin our journey by walking along a narrow trail that takes us through a field of tall grasses; soon to be harvested to create winter hay. It’s early in the morning and the sun’s gentle rays fall softly upon you; bathing you in a warmth that seems to melt away all cares and concerns. A solitary cloud, floating in the sky is gently ushered away by a delicate breeze. All around you, you can hear the sound of nature waking up to a brand-new day..

A SERENGETI SUNRISE
 

Featuring Nathalie Bolt

I’d like to take you on a journey to Serengeti’s National Park. It’s dawn and a majestic looking sun is rising gracefully above the horizon. Streaks of cadmium yellow, burnished orange and delicate pink are lavishly painted across the sky, as if placed there by the hand of an invisible artist. Silhouetted against this stunning backdrop are several Acacia trees; their twisting limbs reaching out to welcome in the new day. Before you fully embark upon your journey, I’d like you to spend some time focussing on the rise and fall of your chest. By controlling the rate at which you breathe, which should be measured and leisurely, you will find yourself becoming more and more immersed in the moment; creating within you an increased state of peace and calm. Inhale… 2… 3… and release… 2… 3… Inhale… 2… 3… and release… 2… 3… As night increasingly gives way to day, the air begins to slowly fill with the muted sounds of mother nature as she awakens from her slumber. All manner of animals, birds and insects adding their voices to the incredible soundscape....
