Samten is a meditation and mindfulness app delivering easy to follow, traditional and authentic techniques guided by expert monk Gelong Thubten who teaches non-religious meditation at Google and many other companies. He has also collaborated with Ruby Wax on the book “How to be Human, the Manual”.

We are giving 50% of our profits to charity to help develop mindfulness, meditation and wellbeing centres globally.

Meditate for just 5 to 10 minutes a day and start your journey with authentic content that is regularly updated to help you reduce stress, increase compassion, improve focus, increase quality of sleep and become more aware.

Start your journey with the “30 day challenge” where we provide you with a step by step programme, with explanations of how the techniques work, free for the first 7 days.

Guided meditation sessions are available as:
-5 to 7 minutes a day for the first 7 days and
-10 minutes a day for the next 30 days.
-There are then further trainings for deepening your practice and developing wisdom.

Samten is the perfect app for those on the go, developing mindfulness during your morning commute, or at work. We will teach you how to integrate meditation into your daily life in a user-friendly way.

Great App

I have been practicing with this app for a while now , and I really think it’s very well made, the content and how you can step by step get better at it. Recently I had a problem with my app but the team were really helpful and solved my problem. I recommend it more than other apps that do meditation. it’s more accessible for ordinary people who aren’t sitting in a monastery😉.
Since I started this app I’m getting less ill , I think my mental energy has changed a lot, although I have been using it everyday for few times.

Game changer

What a great app. Alot of thought and hard work has gone in to this and it shows. Ive been using this for a week and its starting to make a difference already. as someone who found it difficult meditating. This is beginning to make it a lot clearer.

Samten junior seems promising too. Will test this on my looney nephews 🙏🏽 🧘🏽‍♂️
