Reconnect with Nature & Start Meditating

Clara Starr's meditation podcast series Your Sleep Guru™ was inspired by the experience of being revived by nature and meditation. Clara uses visualization, a gentle but powerful meditation technique that allows the listener to use their imagination to help them relax and sleep. To date, the series has helped hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.

ABOUT

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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    YOUR REMEDY FOR CALM & SLEEP

    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.

During the meditation, you will also experience the ritual known as Takigyo, or waterfall meditation, practised widely in Japan. In Takigyo, the Shinto purification ritual, you cleanse the mind, body and spirit by standing underneath a mountain waterfall. The meditation begins with a simple relaxation exercise and ends with the AMSR of the tropical waterfall.

    Lotus Land
    Lotus LandA Guided Meditation to Monet’s Garden
    In the latter part of his life, the artist Monet purchased a farm outside Paris, where he spent years creating a magical masterpiece—an exotic lotus land. In the garden of Giverny, he painted and meditated for almost 30 years. Many of the canvases he made during this time depicted waterlilies with large blossoms and pads suspended as if in space in the azure water mingled with the clouds. The guided meditation, Lotus Land, begins with a simple relaxation exercise and then journeys back in time to the colourful garden of Giverny. Here you will discover an otherworldly sense of peace. The visualisation ends with soothing ambient sounds from Monet's water lily garden.
