    I’ve been a fan of Sam Harris ever since a friend showed me a meme about Christmas including video of Sam Harris in an interview, probably 5 years ago, possibly 6. I was so intrigued that I found him on you tube, then his podcast which I listened to for a good two years before I subscribed. I love what he stands for, his intelligence, thoughtfulness, kindness and ability to articulate thoughts. I’ve also been on a journey and pursuit of happiness, contentment, finding out the true rawness of this life experience. I’ve kinda tried meditation on my own, thru other apps, yoga, nothing worked but I wanted to meditate. I wanted to experience it. This app works. He is patient and the things he says I relate to in the process of each meditation and I feel like I’ve progressed, even just after the 4th day/time. I highly recommend this app for anyone who’s wanted but struggled with meditation. Thank you Sam.

    What a great app! Sam is awesome at delivering useful meditation guidance. Also, the lessons section has been so helpful in framing the practice and context of the utility of the meditation practice to my live.

    I have needed this for all my life. Just didn’t know it until a few years ago. This app works well for a truck driver. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience.

    I’ve tried many other guided meditations and nothing has resonated as much as this series by Sam Harris. Sam introduces concepts slowly and strategically throughout the course, I would find myself thinking about something Sam said only to have him follow up in a couple of days and give me a little bit more so I could dig a little deeper. I’m finding myself living in the moment almost always nowadays. Sam THANK YOU!!!
  • Great help to meditation practice

    By ZenJim
    My meditation practice was getting off track and I was having difficulty sticking with it. This app has helped me get back into a good meditation practice again. It’s easy to use and elegant. Highly recommended

  • Excellent

    I’ve meditated under various styles for a decade. This app is a great, no-nonsense set of instructions and guided meditations, which I wish I’d had sooner.
  • Must have app for all humans

    By Icecreambuzz
    The Waking Up app is a godsend in this world of distraction, busy-ness and stress. Investing 10 minutes each day to meditate, or simply be still, can deeply impact your productivity and general happiness. Sam Harris appears to be a well qualified and extremely articulate guide who doesn’t color the experience with an imposing personality. He doesn’t use fruity hippy vibes, or sensationalize gurus that can turn many people off from the concept of meditation. Instead the course provides easily adoptable tools and concepts to start a basic daily practice and discover a little extra discipline that may have escaped you in life to date. Thanks Sam, I can’t recommend the Waking Up course to enough people.
  • The long Wait Was Well Worth It.

    This is the only meditation app where I don’t feel hopeless about meditating. Even apps that start you off slowly I can’t seem to stick with but this one feels different. I’m actually excited about doing it every morning and don’t get discouraged when my mind starts to wander or I feel like I’m not doing it “right”. The lessons are great but the guided mediations are reason enough for me to love the app.
