Mindful glimpses are derived from ancient wisdom, psychology, neuroscience research and the success of thousands of students.

Mindful glimpses are an ancient form of nondual meditation with a unique approach of small glimpses repeated during the day.


Mindful Glimpses has hundreds of sessions, with more added regularly, including:

- Intro Series. This course will familiarize you with the basic principles and practices of the Mindful Glimpses teachings through experientially guided learning.

- Deep Dialogues. Conversations with thought leaders in neuroscience, mindfulness, and psychology.

- Micro-Meditations. In a hurry? These glimpses get right to the point and are only 1-3 minutes long, allowing you squeeze one in when time is short!

- Psychological Wellbeing. This series of glimpse practices covers numerous topics including emotions as energy, emotional blocks, pain relief, and IFS-style inquiries.


- Daily Glimpse reminders. Set phone notifications for glimpses through your day! They will take you straight to the daily glimpse and other glimpses from the growing library in the app.

- Meditation Timers. Prefer some silent meditation time? The “Meditation Timers” feature lets you set custom-length meditations that end with a soothing bell tone.

- Download Content. Ever find yourself on the go and without internet? Download your favorite audio and video sessions to your device for offline use.

Experience true insight in moments (not years)

I have been a daily meditator for 4 years now. It wasn’t until I came across Loch’s teachings much more recently in that journey, that I began to experience a profound shift in consciousness. Using this app and Loch’s methods, I have learned to summon a nondual reality, rigpa or awake awareness as Loch refers to it, pretty much on demand. I’m rather surprised but of course absolutely elated at these results.

Loch is doing nothing short of democratizing awakening - making it accessible to all of us.

Not everyone has the privilege to spend weeks or months on retreat. I thought I’d need to spend hours meditating in very formal circumstances to achieve these results. Not so! Just do a glimpse once or twice a day and you can get there.

Whats more, spending even a minute or two in awake awareness opens up and expands an inner capacity for healing from very deep, very old wounds. This app / style of teachings has become an invaluable compliment (and I believe accelerator) for the trauma work I’m doing in therapy. It’s also a true refuge when things become too overwhelming, and one needs to resource by accessing at least a moment of safety amid the fray.

I’m deeply grateful for this app, which has been a wonderful addition to deepening my practice. Thank you to Loch, his team, and the developers for putting so much work into something so meaningful and useful. 🙏🧡

The Next Level of Meditation Technology

This app is great. Love the “glimpses” approach to directly experiencing and stabilizing awakening. And the app is much more comprehensive than a book alone or podcast alone or even a great retreat that you eventually have to leave and try to find your own way. I think this might be the next great leap in meditation technology - learning from a teachers realization and then learning to be one’s own teacher with the help of comprehensive meditation tech like this. 🙏🏼

Powerful ancient teachings, made modern and assessable

It’s easy to see the amount of time and effort Loch Kelly has put into the creating of this app
The ancient wisdom teachings have been made completely understandable and accessible to even the beginner and the glimpse practices create immediate spaciousness, and a sense of deep well-being

Lots of other great stuff on the app. Can’t wait to keep exploring!!!
