Virtual Vacations: Meditative Audio Tours Around the World

Welcome to Virtual Vacations, our series of meditative audio travel tours of both popular and off-the-beaten-path destinations around the world.

Paris: Settle in, close your eyes, and imagine yourself exploring the City of Light. We’ll wander from the Left Bank over the Ile de la Cite, along the Ile Saint-Louis, and across to the Right Bank. (8 minutes)

Vietnam: Let’s take a peaceful cruise up the Mekong River in Vietnam. Along the way, we’ll admire the scenery and see local life as it unfolds along the sloping banks. (6 minutes)

Zion National Park: Imagine the towering red rocks, hear the gurgle of newly formed streams, and feel the cool mist of waterfalls on your face as you wander the winter canyon. (7 minutes)

Guided Forest Bathing Session: Whether you choose to wander the twists and turns of a deep jungle or stroll the well-worn paths of a childhood wood, allow this mindfulness practice to transport you to where the air is fresh and the trees reach up toward the sky. (9 minutes)
