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.

  • A well organized map to inner quiet

    By anyonepants
    This podcast is well organized and easy to use. Sam’s voice is quickly becoming the mc to inner peace in my life. I don’t agree with all of Sam’s beliefs, but I have great respect for how he communicates those beliefs and the safe space he creates for others to improve their lives. Thanks to you Sam!
  • This has helped me more than anything in my 50 years

    By james b norman
    I have had poor luck with meditation in the past. After taking a CBT class to help me see how the mechanics of the mind works and listening to a lecture by Sam on Free Will i gave this app a shot and it has been profound. His methods are very helpful and have keep me involved in the daily practice for three months now. I look forward to my days on earth now with joy. I’m 50 years old. Lived with depression and anxiety for most of them. Thanks Sam
  • A worthwhile meditation app

    By Spanthusiast
    Today is Day 6 of my meditation practice and I find that I like the directness in Sam’s delivery and his easy to follow steps to get started. I’d read books on meditation and checked out a few apps but haven’t been completely satisfied. I like that Sam offers ways of measuring your progress as well as goals to reach towards. I’m also very grateful for the generous assistance that I’ve received from Sam and his team. I intend to post a quarterly review on whether I’ve been able to sustain the practice and whether the app has helped me keep to the practice and also whether I see improvement in my practice. This is an exciting journey for me.
  • Love this app

    By RustVel
    Just one thing. Could you guys please organize the lessons page? Meditations and q&as and everything else is in the same place in the same way. I don’t see why it should be like that - looks sloppy doesn’t it? Maybe add some transcripts. It’s easier to take away a lesson when you can look into the words.
  • This Project is Amazing

    By Isu21842
    Sam and the waking up team truly want people to understand the great benefits of mindful meditation. One does not have to be non religious to enjoy what mindfulness can offer. It’s simply a way of being able to better enjoy the world and our own thoughts in spite of all the constant stimuli we are so accustomed to facing. I highly recommend downloading this app and giving it a try. As a college student, it has been immensely beneficial!
  • Enlightening

  • Simply Amazing

    By Bryantt36
    This is undoubtedly the best meditation app I have tried and I have gave them all a try. Sam and his team have put together a program that anyone can benefit from. I highly recommend!
  • Rely on this app daily

    By AndEvaporate1
    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.
