Stars of Aroha New Zealand Mindfulness & Meditation
New Zealand mindfulness encourages relaxation and peace through indigenous
inspired guided meditations.

Stars of Aroha is fast becoming New Zealand’s #1 bi-cultural mindfulness meditation app

Stars of Aroha is the app that helps to identify and bring peace to hidden tensions. What could be going on just below the surface of your mind? Is something bugging you but you can’t quite put your finger on it? This New Zealand mindfulness approach uses guided meditation (enriched with the ancient wisdom held within indigenous Māori creation stories, the landscape, native plants, birds and butterflies) to help focus and calm the mind. Mindfulness helps to create a more relaxed state of mind. Affirmations encourage self-love, acceptance and peace. Guided meditations (20 personal-development themes) can be randomly selected by the “shake device” method. This app is great for beginners as well as more experienced meditators.

Luna’s Lullaby; Approx. 28 mins.

Luna’s Lullaby is a children’s relaxation soundtrack by Stars of Aroha®.

Luna’s Lullaby is a New Zealand bi-cultural relaxation-sleep story for children over 2 years. This relaxation soundtrack is great for ‘mat time’ or before bed. Children will enjoy listening to Aotearoa New Zealand (the land) calling her tired children home to sleep. Their minds will relax as they focus on the sound made by horses, sheep, cows, dogs, bumble bees, insects, birds and sea life as they run, fly, jump, swim and skip their way home. The soundtrack begins at an invigorating pace then slowly softens in speed and tone. The soundtrack was developed for Luna, a much loved granddaughter. Ironically, the name ‘Luna’ means ‘Goddess of the moon’.
