Guided Meditation Treks presents a guided meditation album whose guide is Mother Nature. Available as an mp3 album, this experience will help you connect with nature as you connect your brainwaves through science.
Binaural Audio from Nature Recorded on location in full stereo, Mother Nature tells you four different stories in real-time. Unlike other nature albums recorded in mono and combined, or spliced together from different events, each track represents a time and place where you are transported into a real habitat. The mp3 Album includes over 6 hours of pure nature soundscapes.
Brainwave Entrainment The album contains 4 additional hours of the same nature locations, refined and mixed with binaural beats, a brainwave entrainment tool. The four tracks can be played through headphones to bring the listener to one of the four basic states of consciousness: Sleep, Relaxation, Creativity, Focus.
The app includes versions of Sleep, Relax, Create, and Focus frequencies as well as additional binaural beats and isochronic tones presets, which can be modified directly and saved as new presets. The album focuses on providing a large quantity of nature sounds with some brainwave entrainment. The app is the culmination of all of the feedback from the free app, Binaural, and includes some of the audio field recordings from the album.
Costa Rica Rainforest
Recorded near Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, underneath several large leaves in the woods, this track brings you the ebb and flow of the rainforest. As the sound of the drops bounce off of the leaves, trees, and ground, the soundtrack includes insects, birds, and other wildlife who come and go as the rain builds up to a downpour before fading back into a gentle steady drizzle within the symphony of nature. This is also the backdrop for the "sleep" track.
Recorded in the heart of San Marcos, Texas, this track has a different take on rain as it hits the manmade structures of pavement and awnings. As cars hiss by the window and the occasional train is heard in the background, the suburban soundscape reminds me of childhood nights listening to the thunder outside my bedroom. This is the background sound for the "create" track as well.
La Fortuna Waterfall
Recorded in La Fortuna Costa Rica, this track allows us to connect to this epic waterfall in the heart of Central America, formed millions of years ago by the La Fortuna volcano. As the mic position is set between different locations, the main noise sound of the waterfall itself is complemented by soft waves from the pool, locusts, and even the occasional breeze that comes from the powerful water as it hits the pool below. This is the background sound for the "Relax" binaural beats track on the album.
Playa Negra Ocean Waves
Recorded on Playa Negra, the black sands of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, this track illustrates the periodic and distinct waves that come and go in this particular area. This recording is also used in the "Focus" meditation on the album.
Binaural Beats Tracks
In addition to the raw nature sounds, the album and app contain tracks with binaural beats in the background, each of which is tailored to bring your brainwaves into a specific state:
Sleep with Rainforest and Delta Binaural Beats
Relax with Waterfall and Theta Binaural Beats
Create with Thunderstorm and Alpha Binaural Beats
Focus with Ocean Waves and Beta Binaural Beats
The app allows further flexibility with the addition of isochronic tones and isochronic noise. This is the premier meditation technology app, combining authentic nature sounds with synthetic tones and noise with the purpose of entraining the brain to active a desired state.
