What makes Brightmind unique?

Brightmind helps you quickly move beyond the beginner level of meditation with comprehensive, precise and practical guidance.

Most mindfulness apps emphasize two or three meditation techniques.
We teach you a variety of techniques because what works for you may not work for someone else, and what works for you today may not work for you tomorrow. We give you options, and then empower you to practice the techniques you find interesting or come naturally to you. 

Most mindfulness apps introduce several vague definitions of mindfulness. We define mindfulness as three core attention skills: Concentration, Clarity and Equanimity. Every time you learn a new technique, we clearly explain how the technique develops Concentration, Clarity and Equanimity. 

Most mindfulness apps help you apply mindfulness to stress and sleep.
In addition to helping you apply mindfulness to stress and sleep, we help you apply mindfulness to a much broader set of goals, including:

- Communication
- Self-knowledge/purpose
- Positive behavior change
- Service to the world

The app was designed by a team of world-class meditation teachers. And with more than 200 practice sessions, Brightmind is like having an expert teacher in your pocket, ready to guide you at anytime.

Best meditation APP for beginners and experts alike

I am a long time daily sit meditator who has tried several meditation apps. Been using BRIGHTMIND for close to 9 months. It is by far the best app for what ever level you are at in your meditation practice as your meditations can be customized for focus, level, and time. This app really TEACHES meditation and gives you a timer for so you can use what you’ve learned during your own meditation sit. I found my practice really accelerated when I unlocked the NOTING & LABELING section because then all the sections you’ve already experienced now have the added NOTING & LABELING instruction.

Shinzen Young is an excellent teacher whether you’re looking for the secular benefits of increased concentration, equanimity, and clarity from a meditation practice or you’re using meditation on your spiritual enlightenment path. I have found as I have unlocked the various levels that the app gives me the experiences I have had on 7day sits with Shinzen.

I happen to be recovering from a stroke which left my 20 year meditation practice in shambles. This app really helped me “remember” what my brain “forgot” and establish new neural pathways of focus and concentration, making my mind A BEAUTIFUL SERVANT, not a dangerous master.

Best guided meditation for beginners

I’ve used several other guided meditation APS and this one is by far my favorite. I am very ADD and find it extremely hard to sit still. I used to find myself checking emails, making lists and getting up to do other things during my meditation time. I now have weened myself off my medication and with Brightmind can sit for 10 minutes and listen. I’m not sure exactly what it is. Maybe it’s the fact that i can customize it. Maybe it’s the voice i chose or maybe it’s blessed with magical unicorn dust. I don’t care i just know I’m experiencing some wonderful benefits including better focus, better mood, ability to handle stress more effectively, living life in a more relaxed state, deeper sleep, better self discipline and I recently overcome a 4 month weight loss plateau that may or may not be directly related. Thanks for changing my life Brightmind!!!

Immensely impressive.

I have been meditating for 7ish years and have tried Headspace and 10% Happier in addition to Brightmind. I think all three apps are good for people who want to start a meditation practice.

That said, for me Brightmind is far and away the most helpful because it is a coherent curriculum that provides a structured progression while also giving a wide variety of options. I had hit a plateau with my meditation practice and was on the verge of giving up. Shinzen Young’s “Unified Mindfulness”, which is the conceptual framework that underlies the app, provides tools that helped me find concentration, clarity, and equanimity in a far more powerful yet flexible way.

Other apps, books, and methods seem to repeat the same (to me, stale) advice: “just return to your breath” with a haphazard mixture of voices and guidance saying mostly the exact same thing.

Brightmind and Unified Mindfulness guided me through a series of very diverse approaches, allowing me to experiment and find a technique that works FAR better for me than watching my breath. I’m re-energized and committed in a transformed way.
