About this app

From the world-renowned Monroe Institute, access profound states of expanded awareness normally attained after years of dedicated practice to foster greater meaning and purpose, relieve stress, improve sleep, and release unwanted patterns. The guided meditations in Expand feature Monroe Sound Science, our proprietary audio technology that uses targeted soundwave patterns to facilitate unique states of consciousness. Using Expand, you can access the profound wisdom and joy buried deep within your conscious and subconscious minds.

Expand features 100+ guided meditations, along with multi-day mini-courses, guided reflection and journaling, and custom-generated soundscapes that target specific brainwave states. Far from typical meditations that focus on simply clearing your mind of thoughts, Expand meditations encourage active imagination and perception to achieve specific results. Meditation topics include:

- Relaxation & Healing
- Joy & Meaning
- Insight and Intuition
- Sleep & Dreaming
- Nurturing Healthy Relationships
- Creativity & Manifestation
- Beyond the Physical

Expand was developed by the Monroe Institute, the world’s foremost center for the study and practice of expanded consciousness. Monroe is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in the early 1970s as a research and educational organization. In addition to Expand, Monroe offers a wide variety of experiential retreats virtually, on our 300-acre Virginia campus, and in over a dozen countries worldwide.

Very unique from every other meditation app I've tried. I feel a definite difference when using it. It's obvious a significant amount of time & research went into the development of these techniques. Very effective, definitely recommend. But a monthly vs yearly subscription would be more helpful to the people interested in unlocking additional services.

The tiny handful of audios accessable in the free version are fantastic, but with no free trial to determine if premium is even worth it, $70 a year is absolutely insane. The price alone excludes all but those who can afford the luxury of spending nearly $100 on an app they haven't even fully tried, making it inaccessible to the vast majority! While "just $5.83 a month" would be completely reasonable, the all or nothing option is only costing you hundreds of potential customers.

Many of the audio tracks are really good though it depends on the guide and their ability to harness tone, cadence and visualization relative to empathy as well as energetic makeup of the listener. The app itself seriously needs a button that allows control over one's account options such as subscribe/unsubscribe ...! Hence a rating of the app of 3 stars. Audio sequences are a different story.
