We make it easy to connect with nature — through soundscapes, meditations, and audio-guided outdoor nature experiences. Our nature-based mindfulness works for anyone — whether you are at home, in your backyard, hiking a trail, or laying on a beach. Just 5 minutes a day can leave you happier, healthier, and more grounded.

-- WHY ROOTS? --
We built Roots to make time in nature more accessible and approachable. In our modern world, many of us have lost touch with nature, and ourselves. When you spend time in nature, your blood pressure lowers, your breath deepens — you become the best version of you.

Connect with the natural world through immersive soundscapes, meditations, and audio-guided nature experiences. Enjoy on your schedule with lengths of 3, 5, 7, 10, to 20+ minutes.

Listen to nature from your home, at work, or anywhere in between. Close your eyes, put on headphones, and be immediately transported. Explore the world through soundscapes from Gordon Hempton — emmy-winning acoustic ecologist.

Simply pop in a headphone and walk outside to connect with the nature around you. Enjoy approachable experiences like mindful walks, and deeper practices like forest bathing and outdoor meditations. Try it in backyards, neighborhoods, hiking trails, beaches, forests, rain, sun, and more.

Meditate to the sound of the wind, waves, fire and more — out in real nature, or from the comfort of your home. Nature can be an excellent tool to help us slow down and come back to the present moment.

- Immersive nature soundscapes
- Audio-guided nature experiences
- Meditations for all skill levels
- Breathing exercises & more
- 3, 5, 7, 10, and 20+ minute lengths

Benefits of nature:
- Be happier
- Stress less
- Live mindfully
- Sleep better
- Increase focus
- Boost creativity

Gordon Hempton is the acoustic ecologist who captured all of the sounds within the app. Gordon has circled the globe three times in pursuit of the Earth’s rarest sounds. He uses a unique microphone system to replicate 3-D human hearing and create one-of-a-kind, immersive soundscapes. His recordings have earned him an Emmy and been featured by the Discovery Channel and National Geographic.

Meryl Arnett is our head of meditation. Meryl has been teaching and practicing meditation for more than a decade, and her passion is introducing mindfulness in ways that are accessible to all of us. Her classes are a mash-up of creative inspirations, ancient teachings, and her own experiences on the meditation cushion.

Best Meditation App I’ve Tried

The soothing soundscapes and unique meditations in this app are such a powerful combination. I’m able to listen, soften, and fall deeper into meditation than with any other tools I’ve tried. The variety of meditations and different length options fit so well with my lifestyle, I’m able to keep up my practice. The soundscapes alone are just beautiful (and wonderful for spiritual work, especially if you’re interested in the natural elements). I’m already recommending this to friends and family and look forward to using it well into the future. So grateful!

I am in love!

Hey there! I just found this app while looking for a way to calm my anxiety and let me tell you, this is hands down the best app that I've found! I am only two days using the program and it has already helped a lot! Though, I do not currently have premium, there is still so much on the app! My favorite part of the app is how good the sounds and meditations are! Thank you so much to the lovely people who made this app, It's really helping!

Life Changing Experience

I downloaded the app never having meditated before and wanting to get into it. I was told about this app so I gave it a go. I used the guided meditation for assistance and it was so calming and relaxing I caught myself completely in-tune with my spirit and felt like it was an out of body experience. It was an amazing and rare experience and I had it for the first time with THIS APP! I completely dosed off afterwards !!! 5 STARS!!!
