What People Are Saying
“Mind Travel is an experience like no other. Imagine a concert pianist improvising beautiful, peaceful music with imagery in the background that matches the beauty of the music — combined, it is almost meditative or trancelike.” – Jason Wachob, Founder of mindbodygreen
“Mind Travel is an amazing introduction to meditation as it takes the Traveler on a specific journey. It is also perfect for the experienced meditator as a way to enhance and deepen one’s own practice. In short, Mind Travel is for anyone!” – Sara Ivanhoe, MA Yoga Philosophy

It is an exploration in translating music into our daily thoughts, words and actions. To carry forward the lessons of music into our lives. To live with harmony, clarity and rhythm.
