The story of the Meditation Oasis podcast

Were it not for the Meditation Oasis podcast, you would not be visiting this website. We received such a positive response to our podcast, that we’ve been inspired to do more to support people in learning and practicing meditation and incorporating it into their life’s journey.

We already knew that our CDs were having a positive impact on peoples’ lives around the world, and we were searching for ways to reach more people.  The idea to start a podcast came up and we began by podcasting the first track on our Pure Relaxation CD.  After that we started creating meditations and music specifically for the podcast.  With thousands of people listening to our podcast and the many positive comments we’ve received, Mary started a blog and we went on to create this website.

The development of Meditation Oasis is a joint project.  Mary always says that when she creates a meditation, she is literally meditating with those listen.  It’s like one giant group meditation, and the meditations arise from the “energy” of the group. We receive many requests for specific meditation themes, and often the meditations are inspired by those requests.  Your heart-warming comments and wonderful questions inspire us as we grow and learn with you.

We encourage you to leave comments and ask questions!

What is a podcast?

If you are not familiar with podcasts, here is some information.

A podcast is basically an audio or video broadcast on the internet.  The word comes from a combination of the word broadcast and iPod (which is Apple’s popular MP3 player — a portable player which allows you to store and play audio and video files).  It’s easiest to think of it as a radio or TV show that you receive on the internet.  Unlike a radio or TV broadcast, however, you can listen to or view a podcast anytime you want to.

Our podcast consists mostly of guided meditations with music, with a few episodes of talks about meditation.  You can listen to it on our Podcast Listening page simply by clicking the links you find there.  If you have an iPod or another MP3 player, you can “download” the podcast episodes to your player and listen to it wherever and whenever you’d like.

You don’t need an iPod or MP3 player to listen to a podcast on the computer, but you do need those to store them.

About subscribing to a podcast. You can subscribe to a podcast in the same way that you subscribe to a newsletter, and automatically receive it when a new episode is released.  You can subscribe through a number of services like iTunes or through what’s called an “RSS feed”.

    Thanks for stopping by, Ally — glad you’re enjoying them!

  5. Sandy on August 30th, 2008 3:35 pm

    I just love your guided meditations. I have listened to many others out there and yours are the ones I return to. They are calming, quiet and keep me focused. They really help me start the day. Thank you so much for doing this.
    Sandy

  6. Mary on August 31st, 2008 8:59 am

    We’re so pleased that the meditations are helping, Sandy. It’s great that you are using them regularly — that brings even more benefit.

    You are so very welcome, and thank you for your comment!

  7. Kristen on September 1st, 2008 3:14 am

    I love your podcast – your voice is amazing. I have meditated off and on for the past ten years but so far nothing has taken me into myself quite like the guided meditations. Thank you.

  8. Mary on September 1st, 2008 8:25 am

    Hi Kristen,
    I love your phrase “taken me into myself”. How beautiful that this is happening! You are very welcome.

  9. balaban begen on September 3rd, 2008 1:25 pm

    You are very welcome, Balaban! Mary

  11. Gilles Emond on September 6th, 2008 11:07 am

    Thanks for your perfect moment of life when I listened to your guided meditations.

  12. Mary on September 6th, 2008 11:47 am

    You are welcome, Gilles!

  13. Lisa on September 14th, 2008 4:26 am

    I’ve written before to tell you how your meditations have helped me. I just wanted to say thank you, again, your meditations have given me back my life from anxiety and insomnia. Lisa

  14. Mary on September 14th, 2008 8:58 am

    Thanks for checking in again, Lisa. It’s good to hear that you have continued to use the meditations and experience the benefits. You are welcome, again!

  15. Liz Calleja on September 24th, 2008 2:49 am

    Mary your guided meditations have been a great help to me in my recovery from illness. I listen to you every day over here in Australia.

  16. Mary on September 24th, 2008 9:01 am

    Glad to hear that, Liz. Best wishes with your continued recovery…

  17. Treeah on October 7th, 2008 12:52 pm

    Hello
    I was never the type of person who would think about even mediating. But by surprise I gave birth to my children in my 40′s. With this I seem to have gotten a little Anxiety. I fell upon the Podcast with my Ipod and I have to say that I really appreciate Meditation Oasis podcast. With a little medicine and the Meditation I seem to be just fine. I hope others can benefit as well…

  18. Mary on October 7th, 2008 1:10 pm

    We’re really glad the meditations are helping, Treeah!

  19. Karen on October 10th, 2008 12:58 pm

    I love the podcasts (which I download onto my iPod from itunes). I listen to them at the beach, while at home or on the train ride to work.
    I love the guided part but wonder if they could last a bit longer after that with just the music?

  20. Mary on October 10th, 2008 3:53 pm

    Glad you’re enjoying the podcasts, Karen.

    Actually, our plan is to have at least 5 minutes of music continuing beyond the guided meditation part in the future. Our last podcast (Inner Child) was made that way.

  21. Judith on October 11th, 2008 12:31 am

    Mary, thank you so much for creating your Inner Child pod cast. I discovered your site just by searching for topics on meditation 3 months ago when I started to learn about and teach myself meditation. I will be 60 next year and can’t believe I have waited this long to discover how simple and peaceful the answer to a healed spirit truly is. Your soothing words and beautiful music are now part of the daily nourishment for my soul. Peace and love from New Zealand.

  22. Mary on October 11th, 2008 9:39 am

    Hello Judith,
    You are very welcome! I’m so glad you have discovered meditation and love to know we are sharing this peaceful experience across so many miles.

  23. Bob Geurtze on October 26th, 2008 6:29 pm

    I have enjoyed your meditations very much and get a lot out of them, Thank-You.
    I would like to see you do a meditation on releasing fear from your inner self.

    Thanks
    BG

  24. Mary on October 27th, 2008 9:56 am

    Glad you are enjoying the meditations, Bob, and thanks for the request.

  25. Ashley on October 28th, 2008 7:43 pm

    I love your podcast so much! As a busy college student, it’s easy to forget how to unwind. When anxiety and classes make me a nervous wreck, your podcasts help me calm down and focus on what’s really important in my life.

    Thank you so much!

  26. Mary on October 29th, 2008 2:45 pm

    You are so welcome, Ashley! It’s wonderful to hear from students who are meditating. It makes such a difference. I know my college years would have been so much better with meditation!

  27. LT on November 1st, 2008 9:18 am

    I love the music used in your “music only” podcast. Is it one of your own works?
    I never thought I’d be a person who meditates. But, when I actually tried one of your guided meditations (Going Deep Within) somehow, I was able to relax enough to go into that “silent space” and I actually received an answer to a big question in my life. Not once but twice!
    I also received help during the “Inner Child” piece. I saw myself as a child, loving God and curious about the things of God. I never want that to end.
    I know this probably won’t happen every time I meditate, but I just wanted to share with you both the news of the breakthroughs I have received through your podcast meditations.
    Many, many thanks. May you receive more than you have given.

  28. Mary on November 2nd, 2008 10:24 am

    Hi LT,

    Richard (Maddux) composes all of the music in the background of my meditations and it is his music in the “music only” podcast. Our Pure Light CD has 10 selections of music from the background of our podcasts and CDs.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to describe your beautiful experiences. It is inspiring to hear about them. What a blessing to be able to go into that silent space and get answers. That is definitely the state where your intuition is fully available.

    Best wishes, Mary

  29. Edward McCormack on November 21st, 2008 4:08 pm

    Could you podcast another track of music alone similar to the last one?
    Thanks, Ed McCormack

  30. Mary on November 22nd, 2008 10:59 am

    We will consider that, Ed. In the meantime, you might be interested in our Pure Light CD which contains 10 selections of background music from our podcast and CDs.

  31. hk on December 11th, 2008 6:58 pm

    Great site and tips on meditation! I enjoyed reading your articles.

    As a physician, I also recommend meditation to people for things like insomnia, anxiety, etc. It’s a huge part of my own spiritual practice.

  32. Monique on December 13th, 2008 12:25 pm

    Oh thank you for your podcast. I was looking for something that would help me release my stress while I was at home or at work.
    Is there a way if you can do a past life meditation?
    I cannot find a good one at all for a podcast.
    Thanks
    Monique

  33. Mary on December 15th, 2008 10:41 am

    You are welcome, Monique. Glad you found the podcast.

    We have lots of requests and keep them all in mind, but can’t do them all. Often what people are looking for when they make a particular request can be found in another meditation, just in a different form. Anything that happened to us in the past, no matter how long ago, is still here with us in the present and can be dealt with from many angles.

    Best wishes.

  34. Frine Pedraza on December 24th, 2008 12:55 pm

    I just want to congratulate for your excellent service, you can’t imagine how many people have been blessed with your sharing knowledge.
    My best wishes today, tomorrow and always, in this life and the next ones.
    With respect and admiration

    FP

  35. Mary on December 24th, 2008 5:29 pm

    Thank you for your kind words, Frine. We send you all our best wishes as well.

  36. Lynne Riday on January 10th, 2009 11:09 am

    Ditto to all the positive comments. Mary has such a pleasant and reassuring speaking voice, I feel encouraged even if she is only explaining about meditation. I am transitioning to embracing a new life as I approach my senior years, so I need all the help I can get. Meditation Oasis is a valued part of my personal support system.
    My God bless you for sharing your gifts.
    -Lynne Riday, Early Childhood Specialist, and partner of author John Burkitt

  37. Mary on January 10th, 2009 11:52 am

    Thank you so much, Lynne, for stopping by and commenting. I’m so glad the podcast is helping. I wish you well with your transition.

  38. Carla on January 11th, 2009 3:55 pm

    Hi,
    Just wanted to let you know that I listen to your meditations periodically and they’ve been great help to calm me down.
    Thanks you for taking the time to share your knowledge and energy with the rest of us.

    My sponsor and some of my brother sponsors (in recovery) had started a Sunday morning meditation group a while ago. I discovered your meditation podcasts and we often use your meditations. I want to thank you for making this resource available! Personally, I was very intimidated by meditation until I stumbled upon your podcasts. I can’t say much more than thank you and I continue to recommend your site to friends!

  42. Mary on February 15th, 2009 11:28 am

    You are welcome, Daniel. I’m so glad you have the Sunday morning meditation group. What a great resource, and it’s fulfilling for Richard and I that you are able to use our meditations. We wish you, your group and your friends all the best…

  43. Rob on March 23rd, 2009 4:07 am

    I started listening to these during a time of great stress, sometime in 2008. I still use these regularly. I cant tell you how beneficial these have been to my life. Thank you thank you.

  44. Mary on March 23rd, 2009 11:22 am

    You’re welcome, you’re welcome, Rob. Thanks for stopping by to comment.

  45. Billie on April 4th, 2009 3:49 pm

    I found your meditations a while back and have listened to some over and over. Your podcast have really helped me to tune into meditation and bring an overall clarity to life. So glad that you are continuing with your gift and helping many such as I to find a peaceful, simplistic state of mind. I look forward to many more of your blissful meditations!

    Thank you for everything that you’re doing and please keep them coming!

  46. Mary on April 4th, 2009 4:27 pm

    You are welcome, Billie. Glad you are getting so much out of the meditations!

  47. annora on April 7th, 2009 4:04 am

    Hi Mary

    thanks for the awesome podcasts, they’re amazing. I usually listen to you before i go to bed at the end of the day. Your voice is soothing and very calming. I’ve just started my first real job and it was pretty stressful, but listening to your podcasts have helped a lot! I’m doing better now :)

  48. Mary on April 7th, 2009 9:39 am

    You’re welcome, annora. Starting a job, especially your first is so stressful. I’m glad you’re enjoying the podcast and that it’s helping with your job. Good luck!

  49. Russell Harrison on April 20th, 2009 7:22 am

    Thanks for your generosity in providing the podcasts. They are wonderful. When I hear your voice, I respond as I would to the voice of a good friend.

  50. Mary on April 20th, 2009 9:22 am

    You are welcome, Russell. Interesting that you refer to my voice as that of “an old friend”. Meditation does create an intimacy with oneself and therefore with others. When I create the meditations, I am not in the “instructor” mode, I am simply meditating with all of you. Perhaps that’s what you hear or you may simply be getting into such a comfortable place in yourself that you feel that way.

  51. solen on April 21st, 2009 9:21 am

    Hi Mary,
    Thank you so much for your brilliant podcast, I listened to them in a lot of different occasion in my daily life.
    I live in Paris and I travel often, I couldn’t travel without your meditation anymore, they smooth and balance me after long flight.
    I have one question, which one would you advice to listen after exercising-like after cardio or running?
    Sincerely
    Solen

  52. Mary on April 21st, 2009 10:47 am

    You are welcome, Solen. I would imagine that after exercising, it would be good to do something restful like the Deep Rest meditation. You could also try the Body Awareness Meditation to help integrate the effects of exercise. Also good would be any of the basic meditations that don’t have a specific focus, such as Simply Being, Effortlessness and so on.

  53. Dan on April 28th, 2009 8:05 pm

    I have been downloading many of your meditations from emusic. This is wonderful. Your centering and letting go meditations have taken me to a new level. Thanks so much.

  54. Mary on April 29th, 2009 8:59 am

    You are welcome, Dan. Thanks for taking the time to comment. It’s inspiring for us to know that you have gone “to a new level”!

  55. Nina on May 6th, 2009 10:40 pm

    Hi Mary,
    I just wanted to say thank you for the fabulous work that you do. I love listening to your Meditations and in particular, I love the ‘Simply Being’ meditation – I listen to it every day!
    Thanks again
    Nina

  56. Mary on May 7th, 2009 9:54 am

    You are welcome, Nina. It’s great to hear from you!

  57. annie_M on May 14th, 2009 8:36 pm

    I started using the podcasts following surgery. I never had visits or breathing exercises from a therapist after my procedure. Once home I realized that I was not able to take a deep breath without being uncomfortable. Your exercises not only reversed the problem but have helped me to strengthen my diaphragm….and what a better blood pressure reading!!! thanks

  58. Mary on May 15th, 2009 2:26 pm

    Great news, annie_M. You are welcome and thanks for sharing your experience. Which podcast episodes did you use?

  59. Mary on May 22nd, 2009 3:22 am

    Hi Joey,
    So glad you are enjoying the meditations. Great that you are connected with your own source as well. Best wishes!

  60. Joey on May 22nd, 2009 11:47 am

    I love your meditations. Your voice is soothing and so is the beautiful music. I have been using them to relax before sleep for about 6 weeks. Even though I have my own source (see website) I deeply appreciate your meditations.

  61. Karen Lee on May 26th, 2009 9:07 pm

    Hi Mary and Richard:

    Your podcasts are a wonderful part of my life. I too like to start my day with one and appreciate the ease and gentleness in which you have given this gift to all of us. I recommend you all the time to friends and plan to incorporate my learnings in the freelance writing career I am embarking on (focusing on finding peace as a working mother).

    Best,
    Karen

  62. Mary on May 27th, 2009 9:18 am

    Lovely to hear from you, Karen, and to hear how you are incorporating the meditations into your life. You are welcome!

    Finding peace as a working mother is a challenge, and we’re glad you’re finding ways to do that and especially sharing that with others. Best wishes in your career.

  63. Vincent on June 8th, 2009 1:07 pm

    Hi Mary,

    In many of your guided meditations, you say things like “become aware of everything your experiencing” and name “sensations in the body”, “thoughts”, “emotions”, etc…Do you mean become aware of all these things and hold them in your attention at the same time, or rather, move your attention from one to another? Perhaps I missed the point all together?

    Thanks for your help and all your great podcasts.

    Vincent

  64. Mary on June 8th, 2009 6:29 pm

    Great question, Vincent. First, with all of the meditations, take the “instructions” very lightly. They are never meant to be followed in a precise way. The idea is to be very easy about them, just letting them be gentle prompts to your own experience of going within.

    When I say those things, it’s mostly just to help you become aware of what is going on in the moment, as opposed to being caught up in thoughts about things. It’s becoming aware of what is happening here and now, but it’s not a matter of “noting” it or naming it in any way, nor do you need to hold these things in your awareness.

    The word “notice” is important. Noticing happens spontaneously so in a way the instruction points you to what is naturally happening. Noticing is different than “looking out for” or concentrating on something.

    You are very welcome. I hope this explanation helps. Feel free to ask if this doesn’t make things clearer!

  65. Dan on June 29th, 2009 8:38 pm

    Mary,

    I wrote in about 2 months ago telling you that your guided meditations on centering have brought me to a new level. Well, I want to thank you again for your continued updates as many of them have become a regular part of my daily meditations. As a musician and film composer, this has helped strengthen my creativity and enhanced my ability to create artful music in general. As a working adult and father/husband, they help me keep balance in times of perceived unbalance. The music is also wonderful. Please keep up the good work!

    Peace to you and yours
    Dan (NJ)

  66. Chris on June 30th, 2009 9:07 am

    I found your meditations on itunes this week. They are wonderful! For some reason, Mary’s voice sends me into a trance within the first few minutes.

    Just the same, your podcasts have reminded me to just let things be – everything going on inside me. I forget that spiritual healing is a process, and like a broken arm, it takes time.

  67. Mary on June 30th, 2009 9:07 am

    Dan, thank YOU for this lovely update and of course you are so very welcome. As a musician and composer, you know the ultimate fulfillment is when your work touches someone and so hearing reports like this is very fulfilling for Richard and I.

    And, by the way, I am originally from NJ — nice to hear from you!

  68. Mary on June 30th, 2009 9:22 am

    Chris, so glad you’re enjoying the meditations. I agree — I find it really helps to remember that healing/growth are gradual and take time. I also need to remind myself (often) that it’s not about achieving some final goal or state of perfection, but relaxing into the process and learning to enjoy what we have along the way.

  69. Raul Arias de Para on July 28th, 2009 7:45 pm

    Mary,
    I just made a donation. I’m very grateful for your podcasts. I go to sleep every night listening to them and, if I wake up in the middle of the night, your voice soothes my soul and I fall sleep again,
    Love and peace,
    Raul

  70. Mary on July 29th, 2009 9:17 am

    Raul, I’m so glad the podcasts are helpful for you. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, and thank you also for your donation. Donations help us to continue offering the podcast. We wish you all the best.

  71. Monique on August 4th, 2009 6:20 pm

    Hi I would like to thank you for your wonderful meditation cd’s and podcast. I would like to know if there will be a past life meditation guide? I think that your voice will be wonderful for it. Again I would like to thank you for your wonderful collection and I look forward to getting more of them.

  72. Mary on August 5th, 2009 9:33 am

    Monique, you are welcome! Thank you for your request. I don’t have plans for such a meditation, but keep a list of all requests and do consider them.

  73. Alan on August 20th, 2009 1:01 pm

    My sincerest gratitude for the podcast you provide. They are key to development of my meditative practice.

  74. Mary on August 21st, 2009 9:54 am

    So glad to hear that, Alan. You are so welcome.

  75. mary on August 29th, 2009 8:07 am

    During the last six months my life has taken a 180 turn. While planning my wedding (which will take place in two weeks) I’ve lost my job, and relocated from New Jersey to Phoenix, Arizona because of my fiance’s new job. In the process, I’ve felt very lonely to say the least. I’m completely stressed and anxious. Thankfully, meditation oasis has been of great help to me. The breathing exercises have helped my heart rate to lower a bit. I was under a constant state of tachycardias and insomnia became a frequent companion at night. My concern is, I think I still don’t know how to meditate or concentrate. What exactly, am I doing wrong?

  76. Mary on August 29th, 2009 12:29 pm

    Hello Mary, You are certainly under a lot of stress, and I’m glad the meditations are helping.

    Reading our Difficulty Meditation page and some of the other pages about how to meditate may help with your meditation. If not, you might want to consider taking our Online Course which gives you more support for learning meditation and also provides you with 4 personal email consultations.

    We wish you well.

  77. Maureen on September 16th, 2009 8:10 pm

    Mary, I have turned so many people on to your meditations. including my children Your meditations put them to bed each night. Thanks…………very grateful and excited about meditation. Maureen

  78. Mary on September 17th, 2009 9:24 am

    Maureen, I love thinking of your children going to bed with the meditations! I hope to create some in the future specifically for children, but I have heard from others who use the podcasts with their children.

    You are welcome, wonderful to hear of your excitement about meditation!

    Hi, I had always been interested in meditation but had not been lucky enough to find one that suited me, until I accidently ran into Meditation Oasis. I subscribe to the podcasts and I am very happy with your sessions. With so many responsabilities like work, kids, college, etc. it is very hard to stay focused and sane :) I have been listening to your guided meditations at night and most of the time I don’t even get to the end of them and I am already sleeping and best of all I wake up feeling great. Thank you so much for your meditations, my next goal is to get my worrisome husband to listen to them as well.

  81. Mary on December 16th, 2009 10:00 am

    This is good to hear, johanna! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.

  82. Kim on January 17th, 2010 2:54 am

    I can’t wait for your app to be available for Android! I own an Android phone, not an iPhone and I love your podcast.

  83. Mary on January 17th, 2010 10:54 am

    Hi Kim, So glad you are enjoying the podcast. We do have plans for our apps to be available for Android, but it may be a while until that happens.

  84. Alice on January 21st, 2010 9:45 pm

    Dear Mary,
    I have been going through some hard times in my life and do not get much sleep. I started listening to your podcast from my Zune and sleep comes so much easier to me and you make me feel like everything is okay in life and just to pick up where i left off later. Thank you for (unintentionally) helping me.

  85. Mary on January 22nd, 2010 10:16 am

    Hi Mary. It´s been a quiet few months since I havent Write.But i just wanted to tell you that since the first i wrote you I´ve been listening to your podcast. I have the almost all. FOr rest, for chakra, stress, resting in the source ( my favorite by the way) .
    I wanted to ask you which is the appropiate podcast for the day ,or it depends.
    Finally I experienced the benefits of your podcast on “the war”. What i mean is that the only way to feel no stress is to have some hard times but still be in completly calm.
    Thanks for been in my life. Can yoy give some tips, nexts steps to improve myself…
    Kisses!
    Luis

    Hi luis, It’s wonderful that you have been using the meditations regularly. I’m not sure what you mean “appropriate podcast for the day”? If you mean for the daytime as opposed to night, I would say that it does depend. You can try them and see what works best for you. In general, though, I think the meditations you mention are all good night time meditations. Of course the Morning Energy Meditation is good for the beginning of the day, and I think the meditations with a “focus” like Inner Child, Creativity, Intuition would be better done during the day.

    As for tips for self-improvement, that’s hard to say without knowing you, but perhaps I can write sometime soon with some general lifestyle tips that might be helpful to everyone. Thanks for the idea!

  95. Kim Bullington on June 27th, 2010 6:43 pm

    Mary,
    I found your podcast while searching for meditation options. I am new to meditating and your guided meditations have been great for me. I noticed that they were done a while ago…are you still doing the podcasts or do you have other meditations available elsewhere? Thanks for sharing your sessions – they have been a great way for me to get started. Your voice is amazing.
    Gratefully yours,
    Kim

  96. Mary on June 28th, 2010 9:24 am

    Hi Kim, you are very welcome. Our plan is to continue to add new meditations to the podcast, but we aren’t always able to do it as often as we’d like. We will be working on a new one soon, though. We do have other meditations for sale. Some albums of meditations are available as mp3 downloads in our Shop on the website, and if you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, there are some available as Apps.

    Hi Mary – Long time!
    I listened to your podcast on opening the heart. It was awesome. Felt good vibrations on my head as the meditation progressed. Your voice is very soothing – Will listen to other podcasts. Thanks!

  98. Mary on July 24th, 2010 6:17 pm

    Karthik, Good to hear from you. Glad you liked that one. It was recorded with my local group and all had good experiences. You’re welcome.

    As one of the ‘ worlds worriers’ I used to find relaxing at night impossible with my mind spinning. Now I listen to you most nights and all those worries disappear. Don’t take offence but I rarely hear the end of your meditations because I’m off into the most glorious sleep and I wake next moring with my headphones still on. Thank you so much.

  102. Mary on August 25th, 2010 9:14 am

    You are so welcome, Fewmus. No offense taken! So glad you can let go of worry and get a “glorious sleep”!

  103. Joanne on August 29th, 2010 6:48 am

    Hi Mary,

    I wanted to thank you for your wonderful meditations. I find them to be very helpful and relaxing.

    I often listen to the podcasts when I travel to work on the train. Previously, I always felt I had to be in a silent place to meditate, but your podcast made me realise that I can meditate on the train (when I have the most spare time) and just accept that there might be noise or movement around me.

    I also listen to the podcasts at night before going to sleep as they clear my mind of thoughts and worries that keep me awake.

    I am also doing your Online Course and am finding it to be a wonderful and peaceful experience. Thank you for making learning to meditate so easy to understand. I used to worry that I wasn’t ‘doing it right’ because my mind would wonder but your materials have made me realise that this is a normal part of meditation.

    Best wishes!
    Joanne

  104. Mary on August 29th, 2010 9:26 am

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences, Joanne. We’re glad you’re enjoying the course and that it’s helping with your meditation. You are very welcome!

  110. Ck on November 13th, 2010 6:55 pm

    Thank you, thank you, thank you – for bringing all of us that much closer to a global spiritual change. Though meditation has been part of my life on and off in the past I came back to it 2 years ago and periodically seek out guided meditations as they feel like being part of a group energy and also help when I get into a rut or feel overwhelmed. I am very much enjoying yours. There is so much more room for me to grow and I am thankful for every opportunity to do so. Blessings
