    Meditation hasn’t always been daily for me, and this makes such a difference in making the daily practice easier to initiate, which for me is often the most difficult part in a daily routine and mindset. I’ve noticed I am a better listener, a better reader, and my learning capacity has expanded with a daily practice, and feel more fulfilled and less defensive in my thoughts—which is a huge relief. I feel like my energetic contribution has become lighter and less heavy.
  • Amazing App and Support 🙌🏻

    This app is probably the best app in the App Store for meditation. The lessons guide you through the practice seamlessly and you recognize your progress with each session. Couldn’t recommend this app enough.

    Like so much that Sam does, his app gives us an opportunity to truly improve ourselves, our lives, and the lives of those around us. This app is wonderful and I highly recommend it. How lucky we are to live in a world where such things are possible and people like Sam exist to make it happen!
  • Great meditation app and service

    On day 8 and really liking the slow progression and the calm (un-annoying)voice of Sam Harris. I’m already noticing that I can use the awareness techniques throughout my day when I feel negative thoughts or emotions. Love it!
  • Great app but has a couple bugs

    This is nothing to do with the quality of the content. The content of this app makes it a worthwhile investment in yourself. Sam Harris explains things concisely and directly without making the guided meditations all about his words. The content is excellent 5 stars. However, I have issues with the app, I a few days ago I completed the 50 day course. I tried to move on to the daily meditation which is locked. I have 2 days within the course which will not register as played, days 40 and 41. I’ve meditated to day 40 (3) times and day (41) twice. They will not register as being played. I did both of them twice before manually skipping to day 42. I just wish there was a way to manually check off that they have been played. Sam Harris’ mantra is always “begin again” which I have no issue doing but there is certainly a limit to how many times I want to play the same 2 days.
  • So happy my doctor recommended this app

    This is a wonderful app with great verbal cues and relatable insights. The time it takes to complete a session is perfect for beginners. Sam’s voice is kind and gentle with just the right amount of instruction. I am loving it and recommend this app to anyone who recognizes how crazy their mind might be feeling. The only way to create change in our world is to calm our reactive minds. This app has certainly helped me work towards that. Thanks so much Sam!

    I never connected with any other meditation app before this. The way Sam Harris teaches the process makes sense to me and always feels relevant. It has become a daily part of my routine and I feel a lot better overall. Highly recommend!
  • Great so far.

    I love this app and I am only on day 2. It’s a great way to start my day and to clear all my thoughts. I am a gamer and get frustrated easily, so this helps a lot. Thanks Sam Harrison
