What is the Insight Timer App?
Insight Timer is completely free and is home to more than 475,000 meditators. It is rated as the top free meditation app on Android and IOS stores. I love it! You have access to hundreds of meditations, music tracks, talks and courses by teachers of Mindfulness, Meditation and Spiritual Practices from all over the world. There is something for every taste.
What is wonderful for me is the fact that whether I have 5 minutes or an hour for myself, I can always find something to take my fancy. If I am travelling, I can put on my headphones or blue tooth it to the stereo in the car and listen to an inspirational talk from some of the greatest spiritual teachers. My journey becomes pleasurable rather than a chore. Also it helps to keep me connected to my spirit and focused.I have built myself a library of my favourite contributers and am notified when they have uploaded a new meditation.
The only thing I find a bit odd, and this is just me is people sending me little notes saying thank you for meditating with me, but you may love connecting with people. No judgement here, each to their own.
The meditation log keeps track of your practice. It’s the equivalent of Fitbit for meditation. It logs how long you have meditated for and the number of days. I really like that and get great satisfaction from seeing my progress.
So if you one of your desires is to practice meditation then this might be a great place to start. Let me know what you think about it.
