In advance of Mental Health Awareness Month this May, Miraval Resorts has collaborated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), to launch Sensory Journeys, a series of ASMR videos with guided meditations, linked here. ASMR describes the calming, euphoric, or tingling sensation that some people may feel in response to certain quiet or repetitive visuals and sounds (such as running water, nature sounds, etc.), and ASMR videos have become a tool for meditation and stress relief as people seek out new ways to foster mental wellbeing in these uncertain times.
In the Miraval x NAMI videos, viewers can relax to guided mediations led by Miraval specialists or the sounds of birds chirping at Miraval Austin, bees buzzing at Miraval Arizona, and horses galloping at Miraval Berkshires. These 10-minute videos are available complimentary for all on miravalresorts.com/sensory-journeys and are a continuation of the Miraval X NAMI partnership created in early 2021 to promote the intersection of mindfulness and mental wellbeing.
