Meditative Story is a first-of-its-kind podcast listening experience that combines the emotional pull of immersive storytelling with the immediate, science-backed benefits of mindfulness practice.
I have recently discovered the Meditative Story podcast and I am so happy I did so. If you ever find yourself looking for a mindfulness-inspired story you can listen to while walking, driving, or just sitting around listening to the rain on the window, this is it.
I have long wished for something I could listen to that would hit that sweet spot of being uplifting and centering without being either too calming or too active. I wanted to listen to something that would calm my mind without being so calming I'd fall asleep while driving. I also wanted something that was a more immersive and interactive experience than a one on one interview.
I have found just what I was looking for in Meditative Story. It reminds me of what I felt when I began listening to Imagined Life (another fantastic immersive podcast I highly recommend!). When I began listening to Imagined Life I felt transported into the highs and lows of different people's journeys. I loved feeling as if I was overcoming my fears and limitations with them as they took me through their triumphs and defeats.
Meditative Story is different than Imagined Life, and you will have to listen to both to see which one truly fits you. One of the main differences is that Meditative Story is narrated by the storyteller, where as Imagined Life has its own narrators.
You can try an episode of Meditative Story below. I chose this one because David Duchovny's voice is so perfect for this type of thing. So far, I have loved every episode I have played. I have found that they help me to face my own problems, as each one navigates something we can all relate to - fear, loss, vulnerability and so on. And when I'm stuck in traffic, I hardly notice as I breathe, relax, and fall into a moment of blissful mindfulness.
Below is a little bit from the meditativestory.com website. If you want to try out this groundbreaking mindfulness experience, you can find them on Spotify, Apple, and Google podcast.
In each episode of Meditative Story, a different storyteller uses high-sensory storytelling techniques to transport listeners to a time and place where everything changed for them.
