Shambhala Releases Free Meditation App on iTunes

Meditation-App-2-169x300
Shambhala’s first meditation app is available now on the iTunes store. The Shambhala Meditation App is designed to provide a clear way for people to learn more about the Shambhala community, encourage meditation, and to find local centers.

Update: click here to download the app!

To see an introductory video and read about the history of the app, its functionality and design, and its future development, please visit the Shambhala Times.

The Shambhala Meditation App has three main functions:

Timer
The core functionality of the app is a timer built for meditators which allows users to construct meditation sessions by combining different practices.

Learn and Connect
The app includes a set of audio teachings from the Sakyong, as well as links to the Shambhala Times, the Shambhala Community YouTube Channel, and recommendations for further reading.

Map
Finally the app provides a map to every Shambhala Center and Group in the world. It identifies your nearest Shambhala Center, points you to its website, and provides directions.

To help the future development of this app, please downloaded the app, tell your friends, and email shambhalaapp@gmail.com with suggestions to improve the product.

    hmmmm…mixed feelings about this. “in this time of endless gadgets…”

  3. I get what you mean about “endless gadgets,” for sure! I myself work with how much time I spend in front of a screen (like now, for instance…) because it can be so ridiculously seductive.
    On the other hand, an app seems pretty skillful because it meets people “where they are” and helps them connect to the teachings in a way they can relate to.
    It’s all good!
