About the Website
The inspiration to create this website came from the overwhelmingly positive response to our Meditation Oasis podcast. As we began to see how easily people were beginning to meditate and the positive impact it was having in their lives, we looked for more ways to support their experience with meditation.
Our Online Meditation Course distills the essence of everything we’ve learned about meditation for those who want to learn to meditate on their own. It’s inspiring to know that meditation is so natural that it can be learned online!
As people share their experiences with us and request additional content, we continue to stretch the boundaries of what Meditation Oasis has to offer. Although many people report getting significant anxiety relief from our meditations alone, we were receiving many requests for something special for anxiety. In response to that, we’ve developed a special program, At Ease – Anxiety & Worry Relief – which has a journaling and exercises in addition to meditation.
Our Smartphone Applications are our latest offering for meditation, relaxation and wellness. Apps can include many features that are not possible on a podcast, CD or even an online program. Our Online Meditation Course and At Ease Program are both available as apps, along with many others.
Our path with meditation —
It seems like we’ve been exploring the world of meditation forever. We began practicing, then teaching, meditation in a very specific style. We thought we knew what meditation was, and the best way to do it. Over the years we’ve explored many forms of meditation, as well as other spiritual practices and the healing arts. We’ve found there are innumerable ways to enter a meditative state and to experience the benefits of meditation. Our understanding of meditation has expanded to the point where we see all of life as meditation.
Our meditation CDs have been an unexpected and fulfilling gift in our lives. Our first CD was recorded at the request of students, and one thing led to another. By now, we’ve heard from people all over the world who have used our CDs. We’ve been amazed by how many people the podcast has reached, and we are continually inspired by the heart-warming comments we receive. Our smartphone apps have now expanded our reach even further.
We’ve led guided meditations for years and know the meditations arise from the energy of the group. We’re eager to see what happens as we continue to explore our inner and outer worlds through meditation with our ever-expanding group of meditators.
These meditations are about you… We hesitate to write a lot “about us”. These meditations are all about you. We thank you for joining us!
Wishing you a peaceful mind and an open heart…
