Start mindfulness activities on Apple Watch and record 'Mindful Minutes' in the Apple Health app at the same time. Aim for ½ an hour to an hour a day of Tiyoweh.

Tiyoweh is a Seneca-language word for the stillness or silence that we encounter internally when there is no chatter coming from the mind's thoughts. Tiyoweh is the word for the Native American spiritual discipline translated literally as 'entering the silence'.

Spiritual: Spirit Ritual. A daily practice that enriches ones spirit. Tiyoweh is a spiritual discipline that can reduce stress, control anxiety, enhance self-awareness, lengthen attention spans, generate kindness & gratitude, help fight addiction & transform fear into peace. Any discipline, followed faithfully daily, can allow a person to enter a serene state of stillness, and practice is the key that opens the door to Tiyoweh. Aim for half an hour to one hour a day of practice.

If you are worried that you will not be able to find Tiyoweh, the state of internal stillness, relax. People reach Tiyoweh during sleep and everyone can learn to tap into the silence while awake. There are many ways to reach Tiyoweh. Some people use meditation, Yoga, Pilates or Tai Chi, others dance or pray or use other daily rituals. Tiyoweh is great for daily spiritual practice, training rest days and for recovery step 11.

I created this app because I wanted a timer that worked for a range of activities on Apple Watch and records 'Mindful Minutes' in Apple Health. Corresponding workouts are also recorded in the Apple Workout app.

*Start mindfulness activities on Apple Watch and record 'Mindful Minutes' in the Apple Health app at the same time. Aim for ½ an hour to an hour a day of Tiyoweh.

*Set daily notification reminders to make time to practice Tiyoweh. Set one reminder for the morning and one for the evening.
