Awaken Meditation App – a little different from the rest

Awaken Meditation App

Meditation has gotten popular of the past few years and it’s easy to see why. Life has become very stressful, technology has made us increasingly distracted and addicted to that next hit of digital stimulation or social approval.

In world with so much wealth and abundance, we still see suffering, financial struggle and governments or political systems are going off the rail. They putting efforts to non-important issues and not able to fix or identify the core issues affecting many in struggle.

Our convention culture tells us to deal with these issues with retail therapy or if you don’t have enough money well that’s your fault. If your stressed out from life, watch some mindless television, play some useless games or anxiety inducing social apps.

Then comes mediations which is a resistance to all those issues above. It helps us detach from consumerism and help build a relationship with ourselves.
Meditation helps find out how our minds work but when incorporated into daily mindful practices, becomes even more effective.

Awaken is a new kind of meditation app, one that helps us connect with this goodness and with our inner wisdom. Inspired by Buddhist philosophy, each audio-guided Awaken meditation digs into the heart of our real, everyday lives, from habits to relationships, work to politics, and more. The app explore ourselves in relation to the people and institutions around us and the culture we live in.

Each practice is composed of a meditation, a contemplation with a journaling prompt, and an opportunity to share your wisdom and connect with other members. The method is intentionally designed to bring out our inner truth. First, we settle the mind with mindfulness practice. After that, we share a story or piece of wisdom and guide a contemplation that applies that wisdom to your own life, allowing you to explore what’s true for you and your own experience. Finally, sharing and connecting with each other deepens and crystallizes what we want to take away from the practice.

You can download the app for free and give the first few audio guides ago. Awaken is a subscription model and you can check out their kickstarter campaign for a great membership deal.

I really like this concept of using the app to look how we can add mindfulness into everyday living. With the strength of community support and sharing, this app is certainly push meditation in modern use.

 

 

 

I really encourage all of you to use this free download and discovery this for yourselves. We really appreciate your feedback below and love to hear what you thought of the app.

  1. Yeah, meditation is a very good practice. I like meditating because it is another form of prayer. When you meditate you are talking directly to God and to your own reflection- the soul. And when we stressful or filled with anxieties, the one big remedy would be meditation. While meditating, you tend to detach from everything and push yourself towards an exclusive horizon that is dimensional as well as privately giving you the power to having a new found world.

    It is a very good practice that can generate peace and tranquility. So it is not only effective in keeping ourselves physically fit but also brings utter contentment to the soul.

    We see our own reflections as changed beings with empowered existence when we meditate. It should be thus made known to everybody about the usefulness of it. People with physical blemishes and mental traumas should get hold of this unique way of healing in particular.

    I find that this site is valuable and rare and also wish that it reaches tens and thousands of people who are in need of such remedies.

    I wish all success for the website.

With the stresses of the world around us and the stresses of our own daily lives, what better way to find peace and yourself along the way. I need this because as a teacher, there are moments where it can be a bit stressful, which in turns leads me to make poor choices with food, etc… Having this app and making time to meditate each morning or evening will most likely help me ground myself and relieve myself of the stresses life tends to give us. Thanks so much for sharing.
