For beginners and experienced meditators alike, Waking Up is for anyone who understands that meditation should transform one's view of the world. WHY IS WAKING UP DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MEDITATION APPS? *Meditation is often taught as though it were an ancient version of an executive stress ball. But it’s more like the Large Hadron Collider. Waking Up users quickly understand that there are fundamental discoveries to be made in the laboratory of their own minds. *Waking Up guides you through a 50-day introductory course before unlocking access to an ongoing series of daily meditations. If you’re a novice, you need this. (And if you’re an experienced meditator, you probably do, too.) All meditations are created and led by Sam Harris. *Waking Up also contains a growing curriculum of short talks by Sam Harris on a wide variety of topics relevant for deepening your practice. *Waking Up never resorts to gimmicks or pseudoscience. The app contains only what you need to make fundamental insights into the nature of your mind. “I’ve been incredibly impressed with this app. Whether you want to sharpen your mind or experience more peace, this can help in dramatic fashion. The power of its progression is hard to overstate.” — Tim Ferriss Tim Ferriss is an early-stage investor in technology companies and the author of five #1 New York Times best-sellers, including The 4-Hour Workweek and Tools of Titans. He hosts the popular podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. ABOUT SAM HARRIS Sam Harris is the author of five New York Times best sellers, including Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion. His writing and public lectures cover a wide range of topics—neuroscience, meditation, moral philosophy, religion, rationality—but generally focus on how a growing understanding of ourselves and the world is changing our sense of how we should live. Sam received a degree in philosophy from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA. He has practiced meditation for over 30 years and has studied with many Tibetan, Indian, Burmese, and Western meditation teachers, both in the United States and abroad.

  • Best Meditation App. Period

    By KristianMinn
    Had been really looking forward to the launch of this app, but waited a month to download. Shouldn’t have waited. It’s even better than I had hoped.
  • Wow-Simply Awesome

    By LrnAdX
    Wow, finally a perfect meditation app-at least for me, that is. Thank you Sam Harris; I’ve been for a long time a fan of your wisdom.
  • Get it! Trust me!

    By Ahronzombi
    This man is truly generous and kind. This app is the best out of the 4 or 5 apps I’ve used. I have a year subscription because the methods sam used to explain meditation are fundamentally simple and its almost like a guide to his mind. In hearing his calm rational and methodical explanations of meditation have brought me closer to how I once felt meditating many many years ago, far more so than anything I’ve tried since. Mind blow!
  • The best meditation app!

    By javicas81
    I have tried several guided meditation apps but none provide the structured guidance that Sam Harris’ does. I am on day 48 and the changes that I have noticed in myself and the changes that others have noticed in me are profound. Thank so much for creating it. I will continue to be a supporter for a long time.
  • Harvests email

    By JoeStrout
    The app demands an email address, and refuses to work until you’ve received the code to prove that it’s real. This shouldn’t even be allowed on the App Store.
  • Here’s to a better life!

    Mindfulness and meditation alike have been shown to enhance our cognition and alter the perception we have about ourselves. The Waking Up app achieves the goals of what mindfulness strives for, and I urge everyone to utilize this invaluable tool which harnesses the ability to improve the greater good of mankind. By taking a step back and becoming aware of our thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and beliefs objectively and without judgement, we can begin to attain the true power within us to control what we want out of life. Sam does a great job at creating an environment conducive for success in the realm of meditation, and with practice and dedication I would argue that any user would have a positive experience with this app.
  • Super straight-forward and amazing

    I’ve really been enjoying this app. All of the guided meditations all of the lessons, are great. I love how Sam’s brain works. He is able to explain and articulate everything so well. Everyone is raving about this meditation practice. Download it, and be consistent with it! A disciplined mind is your best ally.
  • Clearing my head space

    By mitchavelli
    It’s been so nice to sit down for a ten minute meditation and have a clear head space, removing all the useless apps like twitter, facebook, reddit etc. and taking part in this app has really been a nice change of pace from the modern world
  • Thank you for putting this together!

    Meditating through the Waking Up app has been one of the most impactful and meaningful experiences I have had. My thought process began positively changing in the first couple weeks. I’ve now been doing it for over 50 days. I expect this will stay a part of my life. I’ve tried meditating on my own several times for a month and never felt like I got anything out of it. On my own, I was more sitting with my eyes closed. I also did Wim Hof’s 10 week course. I really liked the course and recommend. However I have not consistently kept up with the breathing and cold water nor did I have any mental changes. The 10 minute daily meditations have turned into one of the most meaningful things I have done. Every day I’m developing more positive thought processes.
  • Wonderful, through and through

    By fsoe7281
    I’ve been listening to Sam Harris for a while now. I enjoy hearing his unique stance on everything from science to politics. I also enjoy meditating so I decided to give his app a shot. Though I was skeptical as to how an app can help with something so profoundly personal, I found Sam does says just enough to guide the session. He doesn’t speak too often so that you never fully relax, nor does he just say “Go meditate.” This app is a wonderful guide for self reflection and I would recommend it anyone, regardless of experience with meditation. Thank you Sam.
