Reviews For Meditation Oasis

Highly recommend the ‘Relax Into Sleep Guided Meditation’ podcast dated Oct 23, 2014. Soothing voice, words and music. It lulls you to sleep quieting the mind. It took a long time to find one this good and now I’ve been listening to it for a long time. Fall asleep and stay asleep.
What do we need to pay you to keep these coming? Because you are the BEST. I am usually knocked out before the meditation is over. These are perfection.
I replay many of these episodes dozens of times as they get me into a relaxed mindset that allows me to sleep when anxious, and calm down after nightmares. Mary Maddux has an ultra soothing voice that seems to express rare, genuine care and concern for the troubled listener. Xoxo
Just what I was searching for.
Best guided meditation so far. Her voice is soothing and this is necessary for me.
It was terrible
thank you. that’s it. :)
Mary Maddox is often the first voice I hear in the morning and the last voice I hear in the evening. The guided meditations are relevant and allow listeners to the space to explore the inner landscape. I am thankful I found this podcast and hope Mary records additional content.
I first heard about Mary Maddux when my mom started using the Insight Timer app , which had Mary’s meditations on it. My mom told me about it, so I brought it upon my self to listen to yoga nidra and see if it would help me sleep. As you could probably guess, it did. And the first ever meditation I listened to was one of Mary’s. Now, I can never listen to any other guided meditation besides hers—-they have become a literal LIFESTYLE to listen to every night. I am so appreciative of all the effort she has put into her passion of yoga nidra and meditation. If it wasn’t for her, I would have sleepless nights and restless days. Thank you, Mary, for doing what you love (I hope) to benefit the whole community of people who look to you. As you could probably tell, I would definitely recommend Mary.
I’ve tried other podcasts but I always come back to this one. It’s something about the music and the things the host says. Like: “Thoughts may come into your head...that’s okay.” This is exactly what helps me put those thoughts away for the night and rest. Thank you so much!
I came across Mary’s meditations years ago and they have helped me very much. I have a very stressful job and taking 10 minutes each morning makes a big difference. I subscribed to Calm, which is OK but nothing compares to Mary’s no pressure approach especially for a beginner.

Very soothing. Her sleeping episodes work for me. Thank you.
Can’t sleep without these meditations.
Whenever I am stressed about school and can’t sleep, I play an episode of this podcast and it really helps me to be more calm, and set me up for the day ahead!
My very favorite of all the guided mediations I’ve ever tried. I listen to one of these every night. I love Mary's voice and her gentle meditations and visualizations. They are low pressure (she reminds you it’s okay if you get distracted, gently bring yourself back), healing and relaxing.
To be honest, I only found this podcast out of desperate need to fall asleep. I’ve suffered from insomnia for years. After listening to that specific episode, I’ve never looked back. It’s amazing! The fact that it’s only 15 mins and I ALWAYS pass out before the episode ends, it’s mind boggling! Seriously has changed my nightly routine.
I can hear the hiss of the sub par microphone she uses sometimes and it completely takes me out...
I have yet to find anything that even comes close. I love this podcast so hard.
Wonderful soothing voice to go along with these gentle meditations
Adore these meditation exercises she has
Thank you so much! I suffer from anxiety and your voice is so calming and I felt totally relaxed and calm listening to this.

I had anxiety about getting glasses because on the next day I was going to get them! You made my anxiety go away! I'm sure that tomorrow, getting glasses won't be so bad. And it's ALL because of you! Thank you!
I do enjoy these l meditations. I gave it a 4 because I find it makes me uneasy how it just ends. There’s a warning that its ending but nothing to indicate it’s actually over other than silence, which happens throughout. I actually have to check my phone to see if it’s stopped or just a moment. Would be great of a sign off of some sort were added. A simple thank you or namastè. Much gratitude, Nichole

The voice is so calming, relaxing, beautiful! Experiencing major emotional disturbance with upcoming open heart surgery. This meditation will get me through it! Thank you.
I searched for meditations that do not have background music cause I find it to be distracting. Some of your meditations do not have music and I really enjoy that. Helps me to focus on the meditation without the already mind disruptions.
I listen to the “let it be” and healing the body meditations all the time. Sometimes I’ll listen to them at school just to relax and remind myself that I’m important too and that there is nothing I can do about my 89.4 in this class. It really helps with stress and relaxation. Thank you guys so much! :)
My 4.5 year old has listened to the same episode every night to fall asleep since she was 2, she asks for her “Mary Maddox sleep meditation” every night :)
This is the best meditation podcast ever. Perfect voice and guidance. Truly wise guidance.
I have to say that this podcast is exactly my daily dose of perfection. This is direct meditation at its finest. Guidance, music, cues, spiritual, inspiration, tone and non marketing. I’m new to meditation at 53 yrs old and I search and search all podcast and your podcast by far is what I feel meditation is. Thank you for staying true to what the practice preaches. It’s really is perfection.
I Spent almost as much time looking for a decent ( decent meaning it was exactly what it stated) Meditation app. Now , on to My one and only ever review. Mind you I’m a science major , so please, if you plan on criticizing my literary style ..~STOP . I am giving this Podcast 5 stars , wish I could give it more .. ? But I started in the App Store .. because a Lay person WOULD, I’m assuming here .. I simply wanted a FREE APP for Mindful Meditation and or Sleep Meditation. As I am a regular American who has regular life issues and would like to deal with them the healthy way ~ not go to the pharmacy.. but .. to my amazement.. well , not entirely .. no such “app “ exists .. All wanted my $$$$$$$.. Sure .. Seeing that I have a iPhone that cost over $1,000, .. what ???? No . No No.. Really ? Your kidding .. can i yell at someone? No , I’d just look like an idiot.. do I care what the APP STORE FEELS ABOUT ME ? NO! But , where to write this ? To continue? Sure .. my review: . As with most things nowadays , free just doesn’t exist . ( unless of course they are including their own Ad’s, or you have to UPGRADE????? I’m sorry , that’s not what Free means ) ok, enough of my tantrum~ After Weeks of searching/trying apps /giving my information to apps for 5 whole minutes of how to breathe , ( did I mention I WANTED TO SLEEP!?) 5 minutes wow.. ( this 5 minutes usually included their own ads for promoting themselves, as if we Cannot read the APP??? Nor see the information we read when downloading the app ? Insult to injury , - now I’m not breathing I’m irritated ..) what IS THE PROBLEM???! No wonder Americans are so ... I’ll say Messed up ... this is Quite sad for a obese , overworked, no time ? Well no **it , country?? .. WE ARE TO BUSY SEARCHING FOR SUITABLE MEDITATION APPS ~ Next thought .. delete All of those apps - DONE PODCASTS? Sure .. why not .. I’m on a real losing streak here .. I’m not PAYING FOR HELP HERE ! This is the type of thing every other COUNTRY IN THE WORLD ( lol, yes I feel strongly about this ) Gives freely to HELP their people be better at what they do, ie: BE HAPPIER, ie: BE MORE productive, ie: BE A BETTER COUNTRY.. in every way , less crime, less on and on and on , but Americans, Lets keep increasing our need For Medication, Immunizations, Eat your Genetically modified Cow .. poor cow , drink Your poisoned ground water , and stay stressed ?? Sure .. ok I found this PODCAST amidst a number of other Sleep/Anxiety/Relax ( call then what you will ) HELPFUL!! Lol , and FREE - and BTW?? No intro to I am So and so , go to such and such a place to pay money.. .. 🙏 I don’t know about you but If I’m trying to go to sleep I don’t want to hear “my name is ...” ... and “this podcast was brought to you by blah blah blah ?!!” that isn’t what I want to hear!! I want to hear , well ? MEDITATION ? No ? Yes :) Beautiful, soft voice , with nice relaxing sounds in a nice relaxing voice and then I want to hear my meditation directions and FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES ?? I don’t fall asleep in 5 minutes- my mind tells me I’m ANXIOUS ( lol) so I want to see 40 Minutes! I hope I am Writing what I really feel about this podcast it’s absolutely brilliant, the voice is so soothing ( it doesn’t have an American accent .. lol, no I didn’t do that on purpose, but I do wonder if that’s on purpose ~ I actually don’t know if the podcast is even an American one ? ) ANYWAY, if I had money ( which I don’t because I’m paying for $1000 phone remember, ) I WOULD send this company money - instead 5stars they get, AND MY HONEST , THANKFUL , review! I hope you ( you being whoever makes this Absolutely brilliant podcast that I Use Every single night ) Continue to be the humanitarians I feel you are .. I do however hope my review helps Secondly, I will do my best to influence some people I know my sharing this podcast .. if that’s an option ~ Facebook is a decent platform ..and I have low friends in high places ..? or is it the other way around :) I think you get the point .. we all could benefit from a healthier lifestyle.. Well , if anyone got around to reading this , good job ! Now my honest to God, feelings on this podcast ( before ? My review on the fact I COULD NOT FIND ONE TO REVIEW?!! 😎) This sleep podcast is undeniable the best podcast /app/meditation I’ve ever listened to ~ I had to download quite a few , but I finally came to the fact that THIS ONE is the only one that did not as I wrote self advertise . And I’d be far the best in all areas 1: quality. 5 stats 2: length as to not have to worry if I’m NOT ASLEEP YET? 5 STARS! 3: music 🎼: 5 STARS 4: VOICE OF NARRATER , 5 stars ! 5: Voice and Music Combined: 10 stars .. 10 : all of this app — 20 stars .. if I could .. say enough? No ads during ( even at the beginning) my MEDITATION!! ;) I’m asleep in ? Well honestly, lol, I never know . I am OUT. Thank you thank you 🙏. And THANK YOU, Today’s world is so fixated on MONEY, Information and So much BS.. that this was an absolute JOY for me to find .. I am blessed~ I ADORE the voice , the background music and the style . All of it is superb! The “How to fall asleep without trying” episode, is my every night routine. With All sincerity ( yes I was cynical, but I believe this issue is of Extreme importance to EVERYONE in every country, as I see a great oversight in the healthcare system.. ) So I am eternally grateful, I do hope you continue With this podcast .. as I’ve said , paying for it WILL INCREASE STESS . Regards, Leslie Ann Logan
Perfect for my commute and a great way to start the day!
I have recently started listening to these meditations for sleep and they have been very helpful. I am an over-thinker and it takes me a while to calm the brain and fall asleep, but with these meditations sometimes I am falling asleep by the time she is still relaxing the legs. Since it was going so well I began listening to the morning meditation and plan on using more of the others they have to offer. Thank you for such excellent guided meditations.

There's two episodes that I listen to regularly, 'relax into sleep- guided meditation' and 'healthy body'. Both are the best guided meditations I've come across.
Mary’s calm soothing voice guides the listeners to inner peace and relaxation effortlessly. Richard’s music does the same.
When I first started listening to podcasts of this type, I really didn’t think in terms of talent, but the guide for all of these meditations is just very, very good at it. These sessions are always what I need.
Very helpful and my favorite meditation podcast
Made me feel more stress big time with the sleep and stress. Voice is alright music good but words not a good fit for me
I really love these meditations. What I love best is that they are effective. Thank you!
I have been listening to Meditation Oasis podcast for at least 12 years since discovering it on iTunes when I was a stressed out grad student attending a high pressure university. When I sit and contemplate the tools that have provided the most benefit to my whole well-being in all my life, I count the relaxed, soothing voices of Richard and Mary Maddux teaching me mindfulness before it was a hip, trending buzz word as one of the greatest. I still rely on them to remind me to be present, stay aware and feel into my inner sensations as a healthy way to find release and ease. May many others discover the gift that is Meditation Oasis!
High quality recording. The meditation is simple and effective 💆🏽‍♀️🙏
I have been listening to this podcast for 1.5 years now. I had been going to a mental health counselor before I found these techniques. She was astounded at my speedy and wholesome improvements. I have incorporated listening to these into my daily routine.
It’s okay but I wish there were more kids episodes.
I’ve been listening and meditating with their podcasts for six years now. The variety of subjects and duration in time is helpful from the midday break to being up late at night. Bravo Mary you help so many of us.
I used Mary’s soothing meditations while recovering from surgery. Very helpful with pain management. Her meditations are an oasis indeed. Thank you Mary!
