  • Love it but not for everyone

    Von jreikay
    As I thoroughly enjoy Sam Harris logic reasoning and way of speaking, I was bound to be happy with this course. I will say that comparing it to mindspace, it seems to be less strictly guided by a strict, reduced storytelling format. So if you enjoy mindspace, then waking up might be a bit to „Sam Harris Podcasty“ for you.
  • Well done!

    Von Ben Probst
    Sam’s clear and powerful prose recorded by him are the perfect companion to the meditation sessions. Headspace’s daily meditation — which also include some thoughts on the mind — feel like a schoolboy’s rumination in comparison
  • Amazing App

    Von Danasus

    Great way to explore your mind!
  • Für mich DIE Meditations-App

    Von shinichi kudo
    Ich habe schon einiges ausprobiert. WakingUp hat mich aber am meisten überzeugt. Die Meditationen bauen langsam aufeinander auf. Man kann sie natürlich auch wiederholen. Zusätzlich gibt es Lektionen, in den der Autor Hintergründe und Denkanstöße liefert. Die Stimme in den geführten Meditationen ist sehr angenehm, sodass man dem Gesagten folgen kann, ohne aus der Meditation gerissen zu werden. Die App ist allerdings nur in englischer Sprache erhältlich, was möglicherweise für den Einen oder Anderen nicht ideal ist. Für alle Anderen: Sehr zu empfehlen.
  • Content great (Sam Harris), app mediocre audio player.

    Von ColtVito
    Headspace, Calm, Oak are way better, richer, with more useful functions. Waking up is just an audio player with lame UX.
  • Awesome Content

    Von trekabdz
    Worth the wait.
  • An app to love

    Von Vol&
    A daily respite from the madness around. It’s a vital companion to keep sane and see beyond the stories. Couldn’t recommend it more.
  • No BS-approach to Vipassana

    Von CallMeIshmalex
    I‘ve been a long term practitioner of Vipassana and was curious how Sam Harris approach may help me to deepen my daily routine. And surprised to see that it does! Because it challenges my daily routine that rarely uses guided meditations any more. Every day Sam offers a little and simple nugget that is a bit different although familiar to longtime practitioners, things one tended to observe at some point in the past, but stopped working with a while ago - in my case some Metta- aspects tied to the multi-sensory qualities of the emotions in play. Since Sam remains true to his rational scepticism it makes this more powerful than most of the new agey type of meditation apps. This here is honest and pure in its quest for truth and insight!!!
  • Good job Sam!

    Von thejulianw
    A great experience! I do my daily meditation in Headspace but found the WakingUp course a nice complementary element, sparking some new ideas and thought processes. The main thing I return for are the lessons though, I listened to them multiple times and they help setting the mind towards certain topics, I love the deeper and more philosophical drive they have compared to Headspace, asking questions to ponder whereas Headspace seems to always be wanting to come up with answers. The ones on death and free will are my favorites. Looking forward to more content. Tech feedback: - The app seems to rely on an internet connection at start up. So downloading lessons to listen to on the subway doesn’t really work - An AirPlay button would be more convenient than goin into the control center (and many people don’t know about that workaround)
