From Meditation to Relationships, Family to Environmental Tips, Yoga and Meditation to Travel and Recipes—we cover all the issues and topics that matter with a sense of humor and journalistic integrity—cutting through fads and making fun of spiritual materialism.

Our app is simple: it’s not here to clutter your life, but to help open it up. Most apps we enjoy fill the gaps in our lives—whether in line or in a waiting room, or at a restaurant waiting for a friend or colleague to return. Elephant offers space and inspiration within this busyness, enabling us to return to our basic goodness with knowledge and empathy.

Every day, check our Front Page for uplifted discussions and new articles, videos and podcasts. Then, your reading, hearting, sharing, and commenting directly increase the article's score, helping that author “win,” get paid by our mindful community, and get featured on our Front Page.

FRONT PAGE: A clear scrollable display of our community’s favorite articles, timely issues, and editor’s picks. Scroll ’til you find something that inspires you.

HEART: Tap the “heart” icon on your favorite articles to boost their score to help the issue get featured on our Front Page and increase the author’s chances of winning our weekly Ecosystem payout.

COMMENT: Join the uplifted discussions happening on each story to increase the article’s score and create mindful community.

SHARE: Share your favorite articles with your network, directly from the app.

SUBSCRIBE: You can read two articles free, every day—if you want to read unlimited articles, and see fewer ads, you can subscribe for $3/month (billed annually at $36/year). You can cancel your renewal at any time from the Account Settings of your device at least 24 hours before your renewal date.

I’ve been waiting for this app for 5 years

I’ve always preferred reading directly from the website’s app than in newsfeeds or apps with content from all over. Now I finally have Elephant in the palm of my hand and the app design is sleek, clean, and fun to browse (love being able to see the article scores as I scroll!). No more having to log in and out on different social sites to access my membership, plus I can get a daily article sent right to my phone which is the perfect mindful break in the middle of the day. 🙌🏻

Love Elephant Journal

Love Elephant Journal and love it even more when it’s an app on my phone. Finally! Handy to have it right there to infuse a little mindful reading into my day, instead of getting lost in mindless social media scrolling. The articles and topics are constantly enriching my life.

Love this app

The app is easy to use and navigate. I actually think the stories are easier to read on the app than on Elephant’s mobile site. I’d recommend this app to anyone reading Elephant Journal from their phone.
