Fellow meditators on a path to enlightenment, I’ve got a tip for you!
I’ve tried a lot of the other meditating apps, and as Susan said in her post, it’s hard to stick with them, and you want to make sure you have a legitimate teacher. But when I came back from my trip to San Francisco over the holidays, I decided to give Waking Up a try. Tina, who was also with us on the retreat, recommended it and so did Tim Ferriss, whose podcast I’ve been listening to more and more as I continue down my journey of self discovery and consciousness.
There are daily meditations guided by Sam Harris, and lessons that you can listen to that get into the philosophy of meditation. I’ve found Sam’s approach to be not unlike Susan’s at the retreat and the lessons to be good material to feed my philosophical soul. So after I finished the free meditations, I decided, fuck it! I’m paying for the rest of it. Because if there’s anything that’s worth $60, it’s a path to consciousness and a connectedness to the self.
I just received an e-mail today that they are going to be increasing the price of the app on February 1st, so it’s the last week to take advantage of the current pricing. So for any of you who are interested in exploring meditation using an app, I suggest giving Waking Up a try this week, and if you like it, pull the trigger on the subscription before next Friday!
Much more on my self discovery journey to come! Trust me, meditation is only the beginning!
