So what is MULTISENSE practice, and how does it work?
The biggest challenge in meditation is staying present, not getting lost in memories of the past, dreams of the future or the running commentary that your mind creates about whatever you’re experiencing. Having an anchor, a place that you can return to when your mind wanders off is an incredibly useful tool for all meditators, regardless of how long you have been practising. Therefore, the most commonly used anchor is breathing. As you are always breathing, the sensation of your breath is easy to access. Based on the mindful breathing exercise, we developed a sensory practice that involves the sense of sight, smell and sound through the beauty of nature. The Multisense Practice is taking on an important role when you using Package. Multisense is a bridge between your Home and Nature.
Sensory stimuli can help to retrieve memories. Think about the immediate, overwhelming sensations you can experience when hearing a familiar sound or seeing a familiar image. Our senses can evoke very specific memories and do so without conscious decision-making on our part: the memory simply floods our awareness. For this reason, the practice uses sensory stimuli such as nature related smells, sounds and videos to evoke past Nature experiences. As you know Nature is filled with opportunities for finding sounds that can be used as anchors, such as the sound of water to birdsongs. When using a sound, it is best to find something that is reasonably constant. so that it will help you stay in the present moment. One of the aims of this practice is to bring these sensory experiences into harmony.
The MULTISENSE practice is a combination of popular meditation forms. Our team has spent more than 5 years to overview all related literature. The current practice is based on recent third-party neuroscience researches and own concluded EEG sessions. As well as we working extensively with aromatherapists and mindfulness teachers. Our main goal is to bring smell experience into a sensory-based meditation.
One of the most important anchors is smell. This is something we instinctively feel when we say ‘smell brings us back’. While the herbs have the pharmacological power to induce a meditative state, you can underpin this with the associative power of smell. If you use any of the essential oils in meditation or relaxation, whenever you use them again, your body will remember that particular state you were in – physically. Your body will recreate that state, just through the associative power of smell.
Formal Practice 1.
Focused Attention / Single pointed focus
The first part of the MULTISENSE practice is intended to focus on the user’s video display. This is where the practice starts. It teaches us to focus on something specific. The aim of this practice to give a job to “monkey” mind to avoid other external noises. There are many types of attention that the meditator can practice through sensory experience. For example, let see the shifting attention practice, when the meditator begins one sensory experience and stops to shift their focus on another experience. Keeping your eyes open and concentrate on the Nature video and background Nature sound as detailed as you can for few seconds, then turn your attention to the essential aromas and imagine your consciousness dissolving outward to the scent as if you were touching it, merging with it, flowing into it. Single-pointed focused meditation is pretty much the central tool and the starting point a sensory- based mindfulness. Also, important to remember that open monitoring is not really possible until we develop focused attention.

Sensory Awareness /Open Monitoring
The second part of the practice aims to achieve a relaxed, non-judgmental awareness of your thoughts, feelings and sensations. In other words, here the Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. Observation to 3 stimuli around us but not taking any effort no needs to focus anything particular. This is an open monitoring phase. Well known open awareness that involves the intentional observation of one’s thoughts, feelings and sensory perceptions in the present through opening the aperture of one’s awareness. Keep during your practice, you are simply observing and not focusing on stimulus. From here you are able to trace the activity of your thoughts in relation to your emotions and become aware of certain patterns. The key is to become aware of the details of your moment. This stream of awareness is often referred to as mindfulness. With practice, you will notice that whatever comes to the surface of your mind will naturally pass. This allows you to gain insight from a point of clarity, focus, perspective, and wisdom.

The last part of the practice is more about your fantasy. Recent studies show there is a strong relationship between creativity and vivid imagery performance. Vivid imagery sometimes referred to as guided imagery or visualisation techniques offer yet another avenue for stress reduction. These techniques involve the systematic practice of creating a detailed mental image of an attractive and peaceful setting or environment. The MULTISENSE imagery is the act of using nature stimulus to create more realistic images in the meditator’s mind. The practice is simple, closing your eyes and remembering everything you can about how it looked, then looking back again, then away, and so on. The goal is to memorize the nature image for as long as possible. Followed by the guidance close your eyes to detach yourself from external distractions, just keep the previously observed nature view in your mind but continue the observation of sound and smell upon your own created visualisation.

The Importance of Posture
The spine should be straight. Here in (the left picture) shows the opposite is strongly exaggerated; this is not the head, neck, and trunk aligned, in a straight line. You can hold something straight against your back and head, like a stick to make sure your posture is straight. It will be easier to sit straight, with head, neck and trunk aligned if you use something firm to sit on. Fold a blanket, or wrap a blanket around a wooden plank; this will make your posture more comfortable. Make sure your video screen not too high and not too far.
