Overall, i really like headspace, it got a skeptic like me to believe in the power of meditation. Search features and overall selection have come a long way! The only downside for me and why not a 5 star, is that you dont get to choose the narrator. There are 1 or 2 narrators whose voices just dont click with me, and it ruins the immersion, essentially making associated themes unusable to me. I hope they add the option to choose narrator, or at least get ppl with more neutral voices

Thanks for your feedback! We're thrilled our app has helped get you started on your meditation journey. We now offer the ability to select your teacher on select courses and singles within the Headspace app. If a session or course is available from another teacher, you will see it under the "Your teacher" section within the course or session.

It's great don't get me wrong, I got to experience it a long time ago when everything was open and free mostly. I've been stressed alot lately so I got it again. But then, nothing and I mean nothing was available to people who just want to use it for free. I do get it to have half or even 75% of it locked behind paying for it. But like only 10 videos? Idk even know if there is even 10. I feel there should be more free content for people who need help with mindfulness who can't pay that much.

Very straight forward guidance that has helped me get so much more relaxation and headspace. Tons of teachers to choose from and the basics are the perfect length of time for anyone. I have a very fast-paced mind with an infinite amount of racing thoughts. After doing just a couple sessions of the basics, I felt I had more peace and control than I've ever had. And for any of you skeptic Christians, this is merely teaching you breathing exercises and focus. No secular meditation or mantras.

What's new

A steady meditation practice can calm the mind. But sometimes a bug appears in the app and it distracts us. We removed that bug from this latest version, and we already feel more at ease.
