Overscheduled but never present? Busy but never fully done? Accomplished but not content? Don’t let chronic stress and burnout rob you of connection, joy and a sense of deep aliveness.

Relax your body. Calm your mind. Open your heart. With a second breath, find pause to reflect, reconnect and respond to life more fully and authentically.

Second Breath is a unique mindfulness and meditation app. It was developed from the lens of the Christian Wisdom Tradition. It’s not about dogma or gatekeeping the Divine but about inquiry, contemplation, and discerning wisdom within. The app combines modern science with teachings from Christian mystics, perennial wisdom, and diverse spiritual practices to help you transform your life from the inside out – one spiritual practice at a time.

Unlock a range of benefits with guided and self-guided breathwork, prayer and mindfulness practices:

- Stress less and sleep better
- Enhance cognitive focus and improve memory
- Experience greater presence, more joy and deeper connection with self and others

Choose from five, ten or twenty minutes of daily centering prayer meditations. Select from spiritual practices designed to tap into the intelligence of the body, mind and heart. Deep dive with series on topics ranging from stress and sleep, to forgiveness, friendship and self-compassion. Throughout, benefit from the wisdom of Henri Nouwen, Cynthia Bourgeault, Desmond and Mpho Tutu, Thomas Merton and more; and the insights from social and science researchers Matthew Walker, Greg McKeown, Lydia Denworth, Ethan Kross, Kristin Neff and others.

Join thousands of users worldwide, from diverse faith traditions and no faith tradition. Subscribe and get full access to hundreds of spiritual practices and premium features like favorites lists and download capability for offline listening. An annual subscription costs less than $5/mo – that is, less than one fancy cup of coffee.

Great outer work arises from great inner work. But none of us can pour from an empty bucket. Take pocket spiritual practices everywhere you go and download the Second Breath app.

So glad this exists

This may be the best thing I’ve put on my phone (and incorporated into my routine) in years. I’m so thankful to whoever lovingly created it. I found you guys thru Dan Coke’s podcast. It’s helping me understand “how” to sit in presence and open up to this present moment. It’s fine-tuning my heart to Great Love. It took me awhile to jump to the paid version cuz i just kept listening to the “sampler” ones on repeat. Im so glad I finally did. The practices build on one another. Thank you. This has been a real gift to me.

This is What We’ve Been Waiting For

This is the app that so many of us have been waiting for. It provides a framework for how good inner work leads to good outer work, drawing on Scripture, the Christian wisdom and other spiritual traditions, and the latest scientific discoveries. There are a range of spiritual practices for head, heart and body. There is a daily centering practice and an examen for the end of the day. As a pastor and long term student at Second Breath I’m excited to share this app with my congregation and friends.

Loving This App!

I’ve been looking for this app for a long time. It’s a great mix of meditation and teaching. I really like all of the tools and styles that are as varied as all of us. I’ve been using it everyday fro weeks and, at times, more than once a day. I’m excited to see what is added over time.
