This is the best meditation/mindfulness that I’ve listen to in ages, and I’ve listened to a lot. I struggled with finding the time and motivation to meditate but with this app it’s a joy and I look forward to spending the time each day.

I've dipped in and out of mindfulness apps in the past but have found this was one I kept coming back to. Gelong guides some of the sessions himself and introduces other sections which gives the whole program a sense of unity and structure

I have been practicing with this app for a while now. I recommend it more than other apps that do meditation. it’s more accessible for ordinary people who aren’t sitting in a monastery😉.
