By Mar Bre

Highly recommend this app

I love all of the extras on the app and the moments are very helpful throughout the day. Just an overall great app for anyone interested in getting into meditation.

Unlike any meditation app I’ve ever encountered. You can’t put a price tag on how helpful Sam Harris’ incite has been in my life. I cannot recommended this app enough.

This is the one

Like others, I found this app through Sam Harris’ great podcast. I’ve found the time spent in the app makes my mornings more productive and my evenings more freeing. After trudging through the dozens of meditation apps and programs for novices like me, I find this to be the one that makes a real difference day-to-day.

Meditation practice is life changing

This app might just change the way you look at life. Great, thoughtful meditation sessions and conversations to get you started and help you progress through your meditation journey.
By Bas3dGod

Truly eye opening

Sam’s introduction to meditation has made my life infinitely better. With just ten minutes of my time every day, Waking Up has inspired me to not only take a moment to be present and aware of my thoughts when in a quite mindless situation, but also to sign up for a meditation retreat. Thank you for this app. Thank you so much.

The Best Resource

I’ve already written a review but felt the need to add a note. (Will this even post(?) App is amazing. But here I want to single out the Introduction to the Koan Way by Henry Shukman. As someone becoming increasingly interested in Zen, I cannot imagine a better resource. I think all of the other series and teachers are great. All real teachers with tested methods to share, but something about Henry’s style just hits me different. It’s stories, and lessons, sprinkled with a couple minutes of sitting, but listening to the stories themselves put me in a meditative state. I begin with good posture and listen, by the time he says “if not already, get into a good comfortable posture” I’m there and sink heavily into the next couple minutes. The stories and mysterious koans are so interesting to me. They just added more content and I’m freakin pumped! I hope this series continues to grow. Thanks Sam and Henry for the work that continues to change my life for the better.

Realized Society Misled Me About Meditation

I’m a long term pessimist and still am. I have chronic mental health issues and was always opposed to the suggestion of meditation. From my perspective, why would I want to dive deeper into my mind? And the people who talked of meditation appeared so pretentious about it. It only took a few of the introductory courses with Sam Harris for me to realize I had misunderstood what meditation is about. Meditation is not going to fix my problems, but it’s absolutely making me analyze the way in which my consciousness works. I can’t think of an argument for why an individual who cares about interacting positively in the world wouldn’t want to analyze how they interface with that world. At first it could be hard to bring myself to do the meditation, but really only trying for 10 minutes, sporadically over 6 months, I can get into the mindset easier now. I’m very excited to continue using the app. The app itself is also super nice, it has a great flow, a similar feel to the built-in iOS apps.

Keeps getting better over time

I’ve always liked the way Sam Harris views and teaches mindfulness meditation and I’ve used the app since it launched. I have found that repeating the beginning sessions a few times has quieted the irritation and sense of defeat thinking can give me and sitting for meditation has become easier and more satisfying. Got to say too that, I’m thoroughly impressed with how it has developed over the years to include in-depth discussions, lectures on philosophy and teachings.
