Clara Starr is a narrative artist who grew up in the countryside of East Anglia in the UK. When she wasn't at school, she spent as much time as possible exploring the beaches, rivers and forests near her home. The experience of spending time immersed in the wild inspired a deep love of nature. Fast forward to adulthood. After seven years of working for a national news network in the United States, Clara was utterly burned out. The stress of deadlines, exposure to the news and working the night shift in the big city had wreaked havoc on her health and sleep pattern. So at this time in her life, she quit TV news and moved away from the city to the Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina. Here she reconnected with her first love, nature and started a meditation practice. Both healed her well-being and sleep disorder and restored her sense of self.

    This was such an amazing visualisation, I don’t think I heard the end! So nice thank you!

    Your voice is perfectly paced and soothing allowing one to drift off during the delightful imagery and your writing is simply delicious!
    Sarah H.Insight Timer
    With gratitude and tears, I thank you for taking me to this place
    Barbara R.Insight Timer
    Very soothing. Little pauses made it easy for my mind to relax, perfect cadence
    Linda, Forney, TxInsight Timer
    This put me to sleep within the first few minutes, it felt dreamlike and tranquil. There are lengthy, silent moments that lull your brain to sleep, but it is not boring, the mind stays engaged in a relaxing, drifting sort of way. I will be trying out more of these because it worked so well and is a nice change from the sleep meditations and music I usually use.

    I have never got past being on the boat listening to the waves…then it is suddenly morning and I have the best sleep ever.a great way to fall asleep!I must listen during the day to hear the whole visualisation😀
    AnitaInsight Timer
    So soothing and sleep-inducing. I have no idea how this ends, so I’ll be listening again tonight and every night until I hear the end—- that’s when I guess I find a new meditation. Thank you for a great night’s sleep.
    DebbieInsight Timer
    Helps my kiddos fall asleep! My kids love the visualizations, and it always puts them to sleep. My son's only complaint is that he never remembers the end of the story... because he's asleep....

    Sleep is essential, wouldn't you agree?

    Poor sleep is linked to depression, lack of concentration, an impaired immune system and weight gain, to name but a few things. That’s why a good eight hours of sleep is so important.

    What Listeners are Saying:

    Perfection! Love traveling around the world to fall asleep each night. Calming, relaxing and perfectly timed for a wonderfully deep nights sleep.

    Why doesn't this delightful podcast get many more reviews? I would make a lot of it. A pleasant young female voice, not shrill mean tone, and at an appropriate rhythm, not too lively, not too slow either. One is transported to beautiful, peaceful environments that are described very visually. Pleasure for the ear and imagination.

    The sleep story, Drifting Down the Emerald River, is based on an experience I had rafting down a remote section of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon and spending time in the otherworldly, mystical desert region of the Canyonlands.
