Introduction to the meditation infusion
The meditation infusion in the sauna is a unique combination of traditional sauna culture and meditative relaxation. This special type of infusion focuses on harmonizing body and mind. We take you into a world where gentle warmth and soothing sounds enhance your well-being and create an atmosphere of deep relaxation. This ritual offers you the rare opportunity to escape the stresses of everyday life and enter a state of complete serenity, supported by the natural power of the elements. It is an invitation to experience the healing effects of silence, while the body comes to rest in the cozy warmth of the sauna and the mind can unfold freely.
The atmosphere of the meditation infusion
The environment plays a decisive role in the meditation infusion. A maximum temperature of 60 degrees (140 °F) in the sauna ensures a pleasant and not overwhelming warmth. Dimmed or soft blue light supports the relaxing effect and creates a space that invites inner peace. The carefully designed atmosphere, enriched with gentle fragrances and soothing color nuances, promotes deep relaxation that goes far beyond physical warmth. Every element in this environment is designed to create a harmonious symbiosis between body and mind, creating a space of peace and inner clarity.
The role of the singing bowls
Tibetan singing bowls (available from Amazon) are a characteristic element of the meditation infusion. Their gentle, resonating sound permeates the room and allows guests to concentrate fully on the here and now. The vibrations of the bowls promote relaxation and help to relieve tension. The deep, harmonious tones of the singing bowls create an atmosphere of calm and mindfulness, allowing guests to immerse themselves in a state of meditative contemplation. In addition, the sound waves of the bowls support positive energy regulation in the body, which increases general well-being and promotes a deep, inner balance.
The sequence of the meditation infusion
Start of the ceremony: The meditation infusion begins with the gentle striking of the singing bowls by the sauna master. These sounds guide the guests into a phase of relaxation. During the ceremony, the rhythmic sound of the bowls combined with the rising heat leads to a deep, meditative experience that heightens awareness of the present moment. This process invites participants to let go and fully engage with the healing effects of the sounds and the gentle sauna temperature, achieving a state of complete inner peace.
Use of essential oils: An essential part of the infusion is the use of essential oils. They are carefully drizzled onto the hot stones, slowly releasing their soothing fragrance into the room. This enhances the feeling of serenity and calm. The carefully selected essential oils, known for their therapeutic properties, help to create an atmosphere that calms both the respiratory system and the mind. Their subtle aromas interweave with the warmth of the sauna, creating an olfactory experience that supports the process of deep relaxation and enhances well-being.
Duration of the ceremony: As a rule, a meditation infusion lasts around 20–30 minutes. It is advisable to take time after the infusion to enjoy the lingering warmth and tranquillity. This period of time allows participants to fully immerse themselves in the experience and achieve a state of deep meditative relaxation. The time after the infusion is equally important as it gently and harmoniously transitions from the meditative state to the everyday world, gently rebalancing the inner and outer senses.
