Animal Meditations is a collection of guided meditations that merge the listener with an animal. Each track focuses on experiencing the body and habitat of a specific animal in real time for five to ten minutes. Each animal is researched to ensure that the information conveyed is as accurate as possible. We're only asking for a minimum of $1 for the initial collection of six tracks, but every dollar will help move this project forward and enable us to produce more collections of Animal Meditations.

Why We Are Making This

The first animal meditation was an experiment with a friend after reading about Pangolins, a small scaled tropical mammal. Colin Everest joined the project to record and mix the tracks and has been my partner in putting it together along with four other friends - David, Jake, Pete and Sam. We have six tracks in post-production and more on the way.

Current Tracks:

  • Sloth, written and narrated by Jake
  • Great Egret, written and narrated by Jon
  • Laysan Albatross, written and narrated by Colin
  • Octopus, written and narrated by Sam
  • Roosevelt Elk, written and narrated by David
  • Diamondback Rattlesnake, written by Pete and narrated by Colin

Risks and challenges

Though Animal Meditations does have some costs in time and technology, this is a labor of love. Our goal for this campaign is simple: 100 pledges of $1 each in 10 days. If you like it, back it for $1 and share it with others.
