Happy New Year and best wishes for a prosperous Year of the Dog!
We have started a new project lately called the Lamma Meditation Society. It's intention is to serve as a laboratory and training ground for the combination of meditation and music, and as a way to connect and give back to the Lamma community. We held our first weekly meditation on December 17, 2018 and have been enjoying weekly meditations ever since.
Today the Lamma Meditation Society is pleased to present our new podcast! Combining meditation and live music, this series will explore many different modalities of meditation, with a rotating lineup of regular and guest musicians.
The Lamma Meditation society presents live meditations with music Monday evenings at 7:45 PM at the Lamma Art Collective in Hong Kong. Please join us live or online at asiamediation.space
We have published eight episodes so far, and we invite you to try them in your own practice.
Meditation for Relaxation
We all need to relax! Today's world is so full of stress and conflict and obligations and worries that it breaks us down mentally, emotionally and physically. So it's good to take time to meditate for relaxation.
This meditation will transport you to a magical realm of relaxation, where we enjoy a moment's peace in this busy world.
From February 5, 2018, with guide Joshua and musician G_Creature on the synths and live loops.
Journey to the Center of the Earth
This meditation is grounding, restorative and healing. Try it when you'd like to feel closer to Mother Earth, more relaxed and more grounded.
We tend to get overcharged in this world today, with so much going on, so many cares, distractions and not enough contact with nature. So take an hour and let this meditation help you get back to basics.
The very first meeting of the Lamma Meditation featured a meditation entitled "Journey To the Center of the Earth". With guide Joshua, and musician Farley on gongs and Tibetan bowls. With a collective jam at the end of the meditation. From Dec 17, 2018.
Meditations for Gratitude, Compassion, Forgiveness and Love
On Christmas Day, December 25 2017, we offered this mediation on Gratitude, Compassion, Forgiveness and Love. Featuring guide Joshua and musicians Valeriy Frolov on hand pan and Farley Sangels on Tibetan bowls.
The energies of gratitude, compassion, forgiveness and love are powerful and healing, and a necessary antidote to today's conflict, discontent and anger. Let's practice bringing these energies of healing to our lives and the greater world.
Meditations for Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a big issue in today's world. If we can learn to forgive, to ask for forgiveness, and to find forgiveness for ourselves we take a huge step towards healing ourself and the world.
This mediation was recorded on January 8, 2018, with guide Joshua and musician Geoff King Luk on guitar.
Meditation for Self Healing
We all have the ability to heal ourselves and others encoded deep in ourselves. This meditation helps us with a beginning of using that ability to begin to makes ourselves whole through meditation.
This meditation was recorded on January 29, 2018, featuring guide Joshua and musician Seraphim on the duduk, an ancient Armenian double reed instrument and a "voice of the soul".
Shamanic Journey Inside the Earth
This unguided musical journey is a shamanic journey down into the womb of Mother Earth. Use this music to ground deeply and return to a place of deep healing and peace.
Recorded on January 1, 2018 at Nature Yoga Hong Kong with sound healing Ensemble 2084 and guest Brenda Pang on gongs.
Visualization for Success
This meditation is entitled "Visualization for Success" and can be a powerful tool in the quest for success in life, business, art, personal or any human pursuits.
The practice of success visualization is one of the most useful tools we can employ to bring about success in any endeavor. While not commonly used effectively by the general public, visualization is a commonly used technique by champion athletes and top performers in music, business, acting, surgery and other high-stakes, high-performance fields. For more on the subject please visit Joshua's blog at:
In this episode, recorded on February 26, 2018 with guest musician Valeriy and guide Joshua, will take us first into a state of deep relaxation before we enter the theatre of our imagination to create and view the movie of our success.
Meditation to Relieve Anxiety
It seems that anxiety is giving many people trouble in this wildly modern life we find ourselves in. It's go-go-go all the time, yet when many of us try to relax, we struggle with feelings of anxiety that we may not understand very well. Anxiety is all around us, in minor and major manifestations and is a real barrier to full enjoyment of life.
This meditation is a way to start to unwind and release this anxiety. With a few simple techniques of breathing and focusing awareness, we can take some great steps toward relieving ourselves of the nagging fears we feel tugging at us from many directions.
This meditation was recorded on March 5, 2018, with guide Joshua and sound healing ensemble 2084. It's our most adventurous podcast so far musically and brings just a little bit of the beat poetry vibe, Rumian odes and beach vibes to create a safe and healing space for us to work in.

For anyone out there who is asking, "Wait, I thought you were supposed to finish that Challenge in the Year of the Rooster?", I apologize. I was unable to finish the Challenge in time!
