While I'm still really new to this specific meditation app, it's the best form of meditation I've personally found. The meditations are really soothing and helpful and don't have too many gaps in when the person is speaking, which is great for me as someone whose mind wonders a lot during guided meditation. I would definitely recommend at least giving it a go, especially since there's a free option for it.

I've just downloaded and am exploring it. It seems like a great app with lots to offer--unfortunately a lot of it is only available to those who can pay (and it's not cheap!). There are free items, but they are nested inside LOTS of other options that prompt you to go premium. I will keep looking through it, see if the free stuff is worth holding on to this one. But I do wish developers would understand how off-putting it is to push for paid services when we specifically searched for free apps.

I am so grateful that I found this app. The free version was so helpful that I decided to take advantage of the premium package. This is a great investment for daily Self-Care! UPDATE: I changed it to 4 because I have had so many tech issues that make me login every time and give no reflection option. Outside of that I still use it as a daily tool.
