Waking Up: Guided Meditation App Description

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.

Waking Up: Guided Meditation App Reviews

  • An amazing meditation app

    By MCS0990
    This app is the first meditation app I’ve found that I look forward to using. The lessons slowly build on each other and offer a step by step plan to learn to meditate. I highly recommend this app.
  • A breakthrough

    By b-doc
    I’ve been trying meditation off and on for years without success. While I haven’t gotten too far in the app yet, I no longer dread sitting down to meditate and am finally starting to feel progress. Furthermore, the lessons are amazing - some are fairly specific to the practice of meditation, while others provide powerful lessons and tips that one can apply to day-to-day life outside of a meditation practice. I am a happy premium subscriber and just hope that Dr. Harris continues to produce more content.
  • This app is a game changer

    By Teddy Sdf
    I’ve been meditating for years and find this the most effective way to incorporate powerful meditations into busy everyday life. I do each meditation 2x a day and am grateful to learn more about my mind from one of the masters
  • So far excellent course

    By Connecticut car fan
    This is the second course I’ve done, and it seems to be more effective at teaching
  • Excellent app!!

    By Ashley Nitija
    I have been practicing mindfulness and yoga for about 20 years now! I am also a practicing psychotherapist that utilizes mindfulness teachings daily with my patients. I highly recommend this app for someone who is new or who values continued learning and teachings with mindfulness. Sam Harris is excellent at making this information realistic, non-dual, and accessible to all. Thank you Sam for the work you are doing. You are benefiting a great number of people. Thanks you for your podcast and book as well. Keep up the energy toward this endeavor! It is making a difference!
  • Best app I have ever installed!

    By jaxndana
    I have been a fan of Sam Harris for over a decade. He is exceptionally well spoken, and maintains his composure even through heated debates. His past experiences in exploration of different mind states, being a neuroscientist among many other things have all come together to be a leading candidate to produce this work, the “waking up” app. I personally have sat under many meditators, some so so and some not so great. And this hits the ball out of the park. His daily Meditations are pure, without any spiritual dogma attached. My partner is new to meditation and it’s allowed her to feel and understand the benefits on her own, rather than being told. Paradoxically he subtly reenforces how beneficial the simple practice is. I have since recommended this app to numerous friends. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you and your team for putting this out into the world, uploading ancient wisdom onto our smart phones. Big love
  • Amazing

    By Vikram1000
    Phenomenal app
  • Next Level

    By Magic Vegas
    This is easily the best meditation app. I’m impressed by the insights Sam offers during the guided meditations and the incredible lessons. Love this. It can help you grow as a person.
  • Most Effective, Convenient, and Important Meditation App on the Market

    By Meh123321
    Working through the daily mediations is slowly but surely improving my ability to recognize thoughts and give them the allowance they deserve in a healthy, constructive way. Definitely recommend giving the app a try if you haven’t already. Also their support is incredibly useful if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Day 17 so far so good

    By idontkn0w
    I am biased, positively, even though I have become a fan of Harris rather recently. His calm, patient and heartfelt approach to topics and meditation make me recognize a kindred spirit in this human condition called living. The app seems well thought out. Not too complicated with too many options and buttons. I’ve done the practice thru day 17 without a crash and listened to his gratitude talk a couple of times, which I highly recommend! I look forward to completing the course and then I’ll see how I use the app, since I have an almost daily practice with the Insight Timer. To Sam and the app team, keep up the great work!
