    O, the joy of a forest walk! How wonderfully refreshing it can be to take a stroll in the forest, on a warm sunny day with birds singing and beautiful scenery. But it’s not always possible to head for the forest every time we want to refresh, relax, and enjoy nature. Which is why I […]

  • Chinese Flute Meditation Music

    Chinese Flute Meditation Music, Featured Article

    There is something magical and alluring about Chinese traditional music. As a kid growing up in Europe, Chinese music always took my mind on a journey to a far-away continent and foreign culture. Bamboo, pandas, exotic clothing, pointy hats, monks in temples and strange language. The music has a similar effect on me now, though with a little […]

  • Throat Singing Meditation Music

    Throat Singing Meditation Music

    Ever since the first time I hear Mongolian throat singing, I’ve been captivated. How is it possible that someone can sing two notes at once, and in such a deep, mysterious and primal sounding way? Perhaps I should take this as a sign to try and learn it myself… What do you think? No matter your […]

    Relax your brain for a few minutes! A study has shown that chanting can reduce activity in the limbic system (associated with stress, emotion, learning, motivation, and more), effectively relaxing the brain.
