feature recommendation

i once prided myself on keeping up with every new piece of content made available. though i am grateful this is nearly impossible with the pace of new releases drastically scaling up, it would be great to be able to search and filter, or otherwise sift exclusively through recordings not yet viewed please consider adding such a feature at some point in the future thank you for bottomless well of wisdom that is the Waking Up app. i am better by having been exposed to it … | old | reading through some of the one star reviews, my heart truly goes out to those who have come to this place that is Waking Up, and left without something they find useful. whatever imperfections you identify within this app, its pricing or Mr. Harris himself, it is clear that he has “the goods,” in the form of insight capable of being transmitted to another, with great clarity of instruction. whatever expectations are brought, with regard to what meditation “should be,” allotting oneself sufficient patience and grace to instead draw nearer to an experience, may grant you access to a glimpse of something more. a disservice is done, in turning away prematurely, having no idea the freedom that is within grasp - it is a perfectly ordinary view of everyday life, and it is beautiful. i genuinely hope you reconsider sticking with the practice. seemingly opaque paradoxes and all, Waking Up proves its worth

No better reality than this reality?

The only thing better than meditating with this app is meditating with this app while on edibles. In fact this reality may provide no better experience than listening to this app on edibles. Give it a try, it may change how you view the nature of reality. The testimonial, statements, and opinions presented in this review are not endorsed by anyone known or unknown to this reality. Results will vary and may not represent the experience of the experiencer. The results and experiences will be unique and individual to each experiencer. Vaya con la mente.

Mindfulness Simplified and Sophisticated

A friend recommended Sam Harris’s podcast which has enriched my life as a learner beyond measure, and the podcast turned me on to the app. As someone who has been practicing mindfulness for over 10 years, I can say with confidence that this app is opening my mind in a novel way. I appreciate the sequence of the meditations and the learning lesson behind them. I also enjoy not having to think about a medication to do and rather just click on the one for that day! This app simplifies mindfulness time for me which in turn makes it more seamless to practice. Thank you Sam Harris and the team at Waking Up!

Best money I’ve spent in a long time

This app is a treasure. I have extensive experience with Buddhism having traveled to India and Nepal several times to explore the life of the Buddha and study with the Dalai Lama. This is the best tool for learning meditation that I have seen. There are numerous lectures, discussions, guided meditations and exercises of high quality done by several well known instructors in addition to Sam Harris. The subscription isn’t a purchase, it is an investment.

Great app, love Sam. Really enjoying the new “moments” feature. Just got off work, was in a really bad mood. Got a moments notification about being in a bad mood and it was spot on.

The One To Get

With 40 years experience practicing various forms of meditation, my strong notion is that this app is the best way to learn this ancient discipline. Other apps and teachers do a fine job, and I’m certain Sam Harris would agree. This is not, thankfully, a contest. Harris goes beyond the deep relaxation — or, at times, the profoundly joyful experience of being part of an inexplicable unity. In human terms, this app teaches meditation, but only in the service of life in all it’s ways, means, and mysteries.

So great

Incredibly effective by virtue of explaining the esoteric principles of the East without losing sight of the cultural norms of the West. You wont get this with Calm, Headspace, etc

Good stuff

I never thought I’d meditate...now I’m doing it everyday!

Best meditation app out there.

Sam Harris changed my life. I was never a meditator before starting Waking Up. I truly believe this app has made me a more conscientious, introspective, and joyful person.

Sam Harris is at the forefront of the human potential movement. To see how much they pour into making the world a better place for individuals and global donor ship is humbling and stunning at the same time. Check it out-start 7 days free to see if it’s for you. I can’t live without the insight and practice it offers. Wonderful speakers .Lyndall B.
