For beginners and experienced meditators alike, Waking Up is for anyone who understands that meditation should transform one's view of the world. WHY IS WAKING UP DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MEDITATION APPS? *Meditation is often taught as though it were an ancient version of an executive stress ball. But it’s more like the Large Hadron Collider. Waking Up users quickly understand that there are fundamental discoveries to be made in the laboratory of their own minds. *Waking Up guides you through a 50-day introductory course before unlocking access to an ongoing series of daily meditations. If you’re a novice, you need this. (And if you’re an experienced meditator, you probably do, too.) All meditations are created and led by Sam Harris. *Waking Up also contains a growing curriculum of short talks by Sam Harris on a wide variety of topics relevant for deepening your practice. *Waking Up never resorts to gimmicks or pseudoscience. The app contains only what you need to make fundamental insights into the nature of your 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.

  • Helpful beyond words

    By Min D.
    This app- and those who have developed it are amazing. I have wanted to get involved with meditation for so long. I have heard of the benefits of meditation and have been encouraged to try it. But despite my curiosity and interest, I wasn’t able to really get into it. This app was an answer for someone like me. It is easy to navigate and stick with. Sam’s voice is soothing and the words he speaks make sense. I am so thankful I found this app. I would recommend it to everyone.
  • Perfect format!

    By junk_yard_dyer
    Heard about Sam’s app through Joe Rogans podcast about a year ago. Finally saw that it came out and downloaded it immediately. I have attempted to meditate inconsistently for a while before downloading this and have realized it’s exactly what I needed. Highly recommend this app to anyone interested in meditation.
  • Best meditation app I’ve used

    By malibu88
    I’ve tried 4 or 5 different meditation apps and this is my favorite one by far. I love the way Sam thinks and how he delivers the guided sessions.
  • Saving Grace

    By suck3r every minute
    I’m on day 21 in the app and loving it. I’ve already noticed a lessening of anxiety. I was out in public and nearing a freak out when my brain suddenly snapped back to baseline after it took note of what was appearing in consciousness. It really stopped the horror show of thoughts. I’ve been recommending this app to everyone. Thank you so much.
  • Very Helpful!

    By nymets4575
    This course is extremely helpful. Sam Harris explains this practice in a very gradual and straightforward way which enables the user of the app to apply these lessons during everyday activities. He’s made a simple but difficult practice very accessible through these lessons.
  • Best Meditation App. Period

    By KristianMinn
    Had been really looking forward to the launch of this app, but waited a month to download. Shouldn’t have waited. It’s even better than I had hoped.
  • Wow-Simply Awesome

    By LrnAdX
    Wow, finally a perfect meditation app-at least for me, that is. Thank you Sam Harris; I’ve been for a long time a fan of your wisdom.
  • Get it! Trust me!

    By Ahronzombi
    This man is truly generous and kind. This app is the best out of the 4 or 5 apps I’ve used. I have a year subscription because the methods sam used to explain meditation are fundamentally simple and its almost like a guide to his mind. In hearing his calm rational and methodical explanations of meditation have brought me closer to how I once felt meditating many many years ago, far more so than anything I’ve tried since. Mind blow!
  • The best meditation app!

    By javicas81
    I have tried several guided meditation apps but none provide the structured guidance that Sam Harris’ does. I am on day 48 and the changes that I have noticed in myself and the changes that others have noticed in me are profound. Thank so much for creating it. I will continue to be a supporter for a long time.

    The app demands an email address, and refuses to work until you’ve received the code to prove that it’s real. This shouldn’t even be allowed on the App Store.
