These ‘Five Minute Vacations’ are brief descriptions of a usually soothing, often interesting, sometimes challenging, sensory-rich location or event. They range from mountain views to deserts, from floating on a river to home scents and sounds of baking in the kitchen. Written in the second person, the author addresses the reader directly, drawing you into the scene as someone experiencing it.
Self-revelation here, I was able to ‘test-drive’ this book whilst I was under quite extreme stress in my life. They were certainly not a panacea for that, but they really were a wonderful way of both distracting and calming myself. I combined them with slow breathing and relaxation, reading a vacation, then relaxing and drawing the images and sensations from the vacation into my mind. I think had I been able to have someone read them to me - or had a voice to text option - they would have been even more effective.
‘Peace flows through and from you, as the moon glows bright, a circle of light guiding your steps along the darkened shore towards home…’
I had some favourites, not to list them all but ‘The Book Shop’ and ‘Raft’ stood out for me in particular. The main downside I found was that occasionally I was being asked to experience things that didn’t resonate with me. For example, as a single person, I did struggle a bit in those ‘vacations’ which bestowed a partner upon me. I found it more difficult to enter into those. I could imagine that some people who didn’t want a partner, cat or a young child, might find a few of these more difficult to access.
Overall I can thoroughly recommend this little book of delightful and relaxing meditation-vacations. Try them and see!
