I recently wrote a travel book on how to use Technology and Mindfulness to go deeper on your travels while you simultaneously make it cheaper. It not only outlines how to make a smartphone into your personal travel agent, it covers how you can use a mindfulness practice to get the most out of your travel experience. The book starts by outlining the concepts of manifestation: dream and opportunity. It discusses how to formulate your travel dreams, then find the opportunity from the universe to seize your dream.
The middle part of the book covers all of the technology around travel. From the airline websites for travel hacking, such as skyscanner.com and kayak.com to the social networks such as couchsurfing.org and Facebook.com that will help you to stay for free with locals while they show you their culture as you live with them.
The final part of the book wraps up with more details about mindful travel. This covers everything from having an attitude of gratitude to attract more things about which to be grateful, to learning lessons and seeing the positive in things when the itinerary doesn't come through as planned. There's an entire section on solo female travel to help women to understand that they too can travel the world solo. The final section of the book talks about journaling, and how you can use journaling as part of your mindfulness practice as you travel.
Recently, I also posted an article on selfgrowth.com that outlines the concepts one level deeper than this blog post. So, check them out, and check out my book too so you can also travel around the world!
Press Release: Sunday, March 1, 2015
“It is wisdom to know others; it is enlightenment to know one's self.” ~Lau-tzu
Guided Meditation Treks has released two new meditation apps for iOS.
The first is an app version of the debut album, “Guided Meditation Treks Vol 1.” Four meditations of spoken word, binaural beats, isochronic tones, pink noise, and nature sounds help you connect to your higher self. The app allows volume control of each element as you take treks to “Meet Your Spirit Guide,” “Reprogram a Counterproductive Thought Pattern,” “Heal a Relationship,” and “Manifestation.”
The second app is a do-it-yourself tool called “Binaural,” which empowers users to generate their own binaural beats and isochronic tones. The app links to a reference sheet that discusses these sound healing technologies, which have been scientifically proven to alter listeners’ brainwave patterns and reduce stress, induce sleep, increase focus, help you relax, and increase creativity. From there, users are taught about the different frequencies and how they induce different effects on the listener. By understanding this technology, users are empowered to create their own tones to use in their own meditation practice or share with others.
