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.

Great practice not a great app

This app crashes a lot and now it is missing all the buttons for me to be able to do anything. And there is no way to figure out a way to get support from the app or from the website. Very frustrating.

Terrible app

Keeps crashing at every other tap. I was just able to go through day one and I liked the content. But the app doesn’t work. Cancelling the subscription.
