Ratings and Reviews
Life Changer ~ Highly Recommend!
I am so glad I ran across this app last year! I never thought I would say that an app has had an impact on my life, but this one certainly has -a very positive impact! For many years, I wanted to get into mediation- I knew the benefits. However, I had a difficult time getting my mind to slow down enough to concentrate on being “present in the moment”, I was, instead, thinking of what all was on my To Do list for the day or week! I also never felt like I had time to meditate. Now, I’ve learned to incorporate meditation into my day - often twice a day. It’s actually something that I truly look forward to, NOT a chore. You can tailor this app to see or suggest only specific categories of guided meditations that interest you. Or if you are on you break at work or perhaps, you are finally getting a breather when the baby is napping but you are short on time, you can search for meditations that are 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes... the possibilities are endless. And yes, even a couple minutes (if that’s all you can spare) can be just what you needed some days-it CAN make a difference. This site has some extraordinary teachers as well as members. It is truly beautiful to see so many people from all over the world sharing positive energy and uplifting stories. I highly recommend trying out this app! Peace✌🏽☮️, ❤️ Love, & 🤗 Hugs! 🧘🏻♀️ 🙏🏿 Namaste 🙏🏽 🧘🏽♀️
What a resource!!
I initially downloaded this app for the timer - a nice variety of authentic sounding bowls, blocks, and chimes. Fast forward four years and I'm continually blown away by the incredible amount and quality of the guided meditation content now available here! All for free!! With new recordings arriving each day, there's everything from basic breath work and mindfulness practices, to creative visualization and hypnotherapy, Yoga Nidra, meditations on specific topics (I've noticed everything from improving your ball game to having a healthy pregnancy!), children's meditations, meditations in a variety of foreign languages, music, and spiritual talks. While most of the offerings seem to be pretty secular, there are some which might appeal more specifically to people with backgrounds in Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and probably other religions as well. There's everything from world renown spiritual leaders to up and coming teachers from around the world. I've found some real gems here and have bookmarked many more than I'll probably ever get to as I keep coming back to some favorites. I haven't gotten into the social aspect of this app, but that is also there for people who want that. I do enjoy seeing the charts of my practice over time and feel more centered and able to cope with life as I enjoy realizing the personal goals I've set. Thank you!!
I TEACH MEDITATION
As a teacher, I’ve been recommending different apps and music for my students and patients over the years and I can honestly say that I have switched and I use Insight Timer EVERY DAY without fail and have done so since the day I found it! I recommend it to everyone! I’m so impressed with the content and how it’s broken down by category and by time. If you only have a few minutes, you still can access a mind space to breathe.
There is so much to explore and do within this little app. You can choose to approach meditation from a spiritual or scientific angle, you can simply use it to breathe or listen to lectures and learn something new, you can use it as a meditation timer or go into a chat room and discuss meditation or philosophy with other like minded people.
The option to join and become part of a community and connect with other people on the journey of learning and discovery is wonderful, and it’s international platform makes it uniquely powerful.
I can’t say enough about this because it’s so much more than an app, it’s an idea that came together in an app and created an international community of meditators and made it accessible to even the newest beginner. I have passed this app on to over a hundred people and will continue to do so! I can’t recommend this enough!!
