Available on VTO’s Facebook page, the guided meditation is set to the calming sounds of the island’s natural surrounds.

VTO’s guided meditation was developed in conjunction with Kory McAvoy, founder of wellbeing and lifestyle school, The Academy of Grounding, and features the rushing waterfall at Mele Cascades in Efate; lapping waves at Port Olry in Santo, and the hum of the rainforest in Tanna.

These sounds have been carefully selected and recorded to transport listeners to the islands of Vanuatu until they are able to return to the islands in person.

“It is well documented that meditation helps us reduce stress and improve our state of mind. Meditating in nature is a very powerful practice to ground us into the here and now,”

Kory McAvoy, founder of wellbeing and lifestyle school

“The more we are able to control our attention and connect with the sounds and imagery that nature provides for us, the more our mind and body synchronises and relaxes,” said Mr McAvoy.
