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”.
