Using Expand, you can access the profound wisdom and joy buried deep within your conscious and subconscious minds.

Very promising so far

I have been a fan of Robert Monroe and his institute since late last year I came across his books. The app is very well designed! I really like the fact that after you are done with your meditation you are encouraged to journal any experiences. My only complaint would be that so far it’s a bit limited in the amount of available catalog, otherwise everything is awesome!

A big hiccup

very excited about the app! Paid for the subscription. But when I try to open any of the meditations it says that I need the subscription. I click on that notification and it says that I have already paid! Cannot get to the meditations. Very frustrating.

Addendum: I was contacted by the Institute and the issue was handled very quickly. Love the app!!

Developer Response ,

Glad to hear that you were excited about our app, and sorry that your purchase experience was less than ideal. We did indeed identify an issue that affected certain users trying to share their subscription across multiple devices. Thank you for reaching out to support so we could get this resolved for you quickly.

Best meditation app by far

Over the year I’ve tried out several meditation apps. Expand is by far the best! It’s many guided meditations include brain entrainment frequencies from the Monroe Institute that get you quickly in a very deep Zen state of consciousness where you can release stress, solve problems, obtain guidance, sleep better and have amazing spiritual journeys.
