With this easy-to-use app, you can practice mindfulness meditation anywhere, anytime with the guidance of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. Scientific research shows mindfulness can help manage stress-related physical conditions, reduce anxiety and depression, cultivate positive emotions, and help improve overall physical health and well-being.
Mindfulness is the practice of training the mind to be present through moment-to-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, body sensations and environment. Mindfulness promotes an attitude of openness, curiosity, and a willingness to be with our experience. Through regular practice, taught through this app, you can develop a meditation practice and learn to bring more mindfulness into your daily life.
This app offers:
- Basic Meditations for getting started, in both English and Spanish
- Wellness Meditations for people suffering from challenging health conditions
- Informative videos exploring how to get started, supportive meditation postures, and the science of mindfulness
- Weekly podcasts from UCLA's Hammer Museum-- a 30 minute meditation on different themes you can search for and bookmark
- A timer to meditate on your own

Next best thing to being there...
I started attending the live guided meditations almost 10 years ago and it changed my understanding of meditation entirely. When I moved to SF, I downloaded many of the meditations from the website to help me continue. Now the app is a part of my daily practice and having it all on my phone means I can take 5 minutes any time of day to drop in. And Diana’s voice seals the deal for me. Hearing her takes me back to those early days at the Billy Wilder. Thank you, Diana!
Love this APP!
Thank you for developing this APP! I enjoy listening to the meditations and podcasts!
My only complaint is I can’t listen to anything on airplane mode! Am I doing something wrong?
I would pay to be able to download what I want to listen to on my phone! Perhaps, I just don’t understand how?’
This is one of the best mindfulness based resources available!
Fantastic Meditation App
High quality meditations available for free from UCLA. Really like the ones from Diana Winston and colleagues. Nicely designed app. You can bookmark the meditations you’re interested in doing. It takes a minute for the podcast to load, so you just have to practice mindfulness until it starts playing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
