Description

Join Sam Harris—neuroscientist, philosopher, and New York Times best-selling author—on a meditation course for beginners and experienced meditators alike. 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 Hubble Space Telescope. 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. 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.

  • Valuable for the experienced as well

    Having used a number of meditation apps, websites, etc., I can say that Sam’s guidance through the practice is a comfortable, well-paced, and very beneficial for bettering (although that’s not the right word to use) your practice. Great app!
  • Only for the brave

    This app appears to be about meditation and starts off teaching how to identify the self. Then, how to isolate it. Then, how to erase it. Then? Nirvana
  • A “master class” app

    The closest thing 99.9% of us will ever get to taking a Sam Harris “master class” kind of thing. The successive nature of the guided meditations makes it easier for lazy jerks like me to continue with the practice, and the talks are refreshingly devoid of politics and other annoying topics. Very happy to finally have this app!
