  • Absolutely grateful

    By Brady Heath
    This app is amazing!! I truly appreciate all of the fine details and quality of descriptive information that is provided by Sam Harris all throughout my experience to make meditation more understandable and accessible. Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
  • Fantastic even for stubborn beginners

    By Feefurs
    I’ve never meditated before and never fully understood the concept or value, but I’ve definitely struggled with anxiety, depression, and uncontrolled emotional outbursts. I listed to Sam’s podcast for a few years where I heard him mention working on the app so I decided to give it a shot. Sam makes it incredibly easy and straightforward. There’s a quick guided meditation for each day and Sam helps gently create a healthy routine of recognizing your thoughts and becoming independent of them. This becomes second nature very quickly and really has a positive therapeutic effect on your mental state of mind and how you handle relationships and challenges. This is an invaluable tool that requires little effort for a monumental return. First 5 days are free, just try them. 10/10
  • The best meditation app

    By David A 123
    I have tried the other meditation apps and this one is the best by far. The other apps basically just tell you to relax repeatedly. Here you will learn about mindfulness and the underlying philosophy and science. It has been very helpful for me.
  • Wonderful app and customer service team

    By Tyler M C
    The app is fantastic and user friendly. Of course, Sam Harris’ guidance is excellent and covers all of the bases for introductory meditation. The timer is a great feature as well and the apple health sync is a great final touch. Additionally, I am on a grad student budget and with a short email the customer service team offered me a free one year full subscription within the hour. The additional lessons will be highly useful for dealing with the stress of doctoral level academics. Sam is true to his word. I strongly recommend this app as a way to introduce meditation and mindfulness into life.
  • Already changing...

    By ATXEric
    I’ve only completed Day 6 of the intro course so far and already I can see a marked shift in the way I see and experience the events and moments of my life. I’m able to get to a calm place more quickly and to connect with others more easily. The world would be a better place if everyone followed this course. Definitely recommend!!
  • Perfect

  • Superb. Highly recommend.

    By Tommy CP
    I find it to be staggeringly good. It’s helping me become aware of how totally out of control my brain is which I kind of knew already. It’s helpful. I recommend it.
  • Best meditation app!

    By ctcrock
    There’s a lot of meditations out there now, but this is easily my favorite one. Absolutely phenomenal!
  • Transcendental Meditation vs Waking Up?

    By hydrothecat
    Hey Sam- my wife and I are really enjoying the app meditation practice. We struggle to be consistent, but are working on that. We are big fans of David Lynch. Recently listened to an interview he did with Russell Brand. He spoke in detail about TM. Wondering your take on the difference between the Waking Up approach and the TM approach. Thank you for making this app and for all you do! -Keith Carlsen
