Why it's more POWERFUL.
The reason GROUP meditation is so special: "The Maharishi Effect"
In 1993, an experiment was done in Washington, DC, a city known for having a very high crime rate. The experiment was carried out to prove the hypothesis that if the square root of 1% of a population meditated at the same time, with the same intent, crime would drop. It did. Significantly. For approximately 8 weeks, 4000 members of a Transcendental Meditation group arrived in Washington and meditated. Sometimes there were more of them, sometimes less. They came when they could and stayed as long as they could to conduct the experiment. The results shocked everyone (except the meditators). All types of crime, violent and non-violent, dropped 15% - 24% during that period. Civic records were scanned as far back as possible to see if the massive drop had ever happened before, or if there could be any other explanation. It hadn't and there wasn't.
Imagine what the world would be like if One Mind Live got enough people meditating together all over the globe...
Do you agree that the world could use that kind of help?

Why it's MORE ENJOYABLE.
New, original music to meditate by every week makes it that much more blissful
Stephen Fearnley is an award winning digital media artist, composer and filmmaker. His work has been shown over the last 30 years in group shows and retrospectives. He teaches digital media and sound design for film and recently won the Goulburn Regional Art Award for his digital image “Anomalous Object, Port Kembla”. He currently works from his home and studio, Cloud Farm Studios, in the Southern Highlands of NSW and enjoys watching the crystal clear night sky for anomalous objects...of the third kind.
For each meditation, Stephen creates a new and original soundtrack by entering his own deep state of creativity and receptivity. He's a master at using tones and scales, both ancient and modern, to invoke some serious soul-connection and move us along on waves of relaxation as we meditate. The moments of synchronicity, when things "happen" in the music in perfect alignment with and in perfect support of each week's meditation (remember, this is all "fresh-squeezed" as he likes to say!) bring tears to our eyes.
IF MUSIC CAN DO THAT TO SALT, IMAGINE HOW IT CAN AFFECT OUR BODIES...
