Waking Up: Guided Meditation for PC Description

There are hundreds of meditation apps on the market, and several do a fine job of teaching the basic principles of mindfulness. But most present the practice as though it were an ancient version of an executive stress ball—whereas it’s more like the Large Hadron Collider. Join Sam Harris—neuroscientist, philosopher, and best-selling author—on a meditation course for beginners and experienced meditators alike. The purpose of meditation isn’t merely to reduce stress or to make you feel better in the moment—it’s to make fundamental discoveries in the laboratory of your own 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. Read our reviews to see what users of the app are saying about Waking Up. 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.

    I’ve been meditating with different apps for years. Some are whimsical and game-like and others are kind of boring. This one, for me, has been the most engaging. The exercises are always changing and they feel very participatory. It’s a fantastic way to begin your day and ground yourself in your own personal reality. Highly recommend.

    I’ve never attempted mediation before and I feel like I’ve started the best way possible - this app. I feel like Sam is a close friend, spending 10 minutes a day together 🤭 I am very curious what lies behind door day 50... I hope it continues to challenge me. Thank you for all you do with this app, Sam.

    I have been enjoying the Waking Up app since about December of last year. I sat through the first 50 days and learned some different methods that have repeated and been reinforced, even now as I practice with the daily guided meditations. Sam rotates us through these different methods and gives new cues or guiding statements that help to make the path more clear. I got a free version by promising to tell others who seem interested about Waking Up, and in fact have bought the book for two colleagues and a 3 month gift to Waking Up for a colleague. I only wish that I had access to the AMA section, but I think I have to be a regular subscriber which I will do once this year is up, maybe sooner. I’d really love to know more about time spent practicing meditation. These sessions are all ten minutes with a few seconds of reflection at the end, but I haven’t encountered instruction or recommendations about when or why to extend the time spent practicing, including recommendations for more that one session per day. My wife and kids have joined in on the practice a few times, but it’s mostly just me early in the morning. And I usually follow up the practice session by Listening to one of the lessons (another helpful part of the app)or part of a podcast relating to mindfulness. Sam has a podcast called Making Sense which features a variety of guests and topics and has turned me on to several other podcasters. I’ve read Waking Up several times, along with Sam’s other books, and appreciate the secular and usually scientific practical approach. I urge others to check this out, read Waking Up, and practice joining your mind to now.

    This app does a better job than anything else out there in introducing gradually the concept and practice of meditation.

    I have taken a number of runs at meditation over the years. Because of the exceptional quality of this material, I know it will "work" this time. It just doesn't get any better than this.
