Ancient Forest NatureBody™ Meditation
Take a peaceful journey on a winding path through an old growth forest. Breathe the fresh, cool air on a misty day. Feel your feet and legs release as you enjoy the springy soil of the path. Your whole body deepens into complete relaxation as you lie back in the pillowy moss. Become a part of the magic of the forest.
This meditation is a sample of our full NatureBody™ massage meditations. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed writing it for you.
Your mind is incredibly influential to your body.
NatureBody™ massage meditations mentally bring you back to your original home in nature, where we humans have lived for thousands of years. By guiding you with visual imagery, you imagine your body moving freely. As you imagine yourself moving and relaxing in nature, your body responds: your heart rate slows, your breathing softens, and your muscles relax.
As you listen to this meditation, you will begin to see the power of the mind to relax your body.
Do your best to vividly imagine as you listen.
Imagine yourself standing in the ancient forest. Look around the forest and imagine the giant trees towering above you.You are mentally placing yourself in this peaceful setting. Feel a gentle breeze on your face. Now imagine your muscles responding.
Your imagination of the natural stimuli in the meditation triggers your brain’s response to relax your body.
NatureBody™ massage meditations remind you of your personal experiences: of wind, of moisture, of cool mountain air and sultry tropical breezes.
In the Ancient Forest meditation, imagine being embraced in life: aware beyond your skin. Feel through the earth under your feet to the mycelium below. The thrum of life penetrates every breath on this earth. Our lives on land are connected to the sea and the air, and vice versa. There is no separation when you reach this level of awareness.
We are cultivating an atmosphere of healing that shares the feelings of massage: the feelings of being more relaxed and connected in the world
where all is well.
From wellness to oneness,
