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, and cultivate positive emotions.

Mindfulness is paying attention to our present moment experiences with openness and 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.

Comment on Vietnamese

I appreciate your efforts to guide the meditation in many languages. I really enjoy the English ones. However, since I am also in listening to Vietnamese. The voice is very nice, and there’s one thing that need to be improved. Could you please work on the pausing point for every sentence? It’d be better if you work with a native speaker, they’d show you how to pause correctly so that listeners would follow the instructions easily. Looking forward to hearing improved guided meditation.

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!

Grateful for this App + More voice diversity please!

I’m so incredibly grateful and thankful to UCLA for creating this app and providing these resources. The meditations are really helpful. I like that there is a variety in the types of meditations, lengths, and focus areas. It’s really easy to use and a wonderful resource. If there’s an opportunity in the future to record more meditations it would be amazing if they could add a variety of voices from people of diverse ethnicities and genders.
