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
