Shambhala Launches its First Mobile App!

RMM AppHive Digital – the global digital platform developer – has just launched the Running with the Mind of Meditation app! The CFO at Hive (the biggest game developer in Brazil) is a leading member of the Shambhala community there.

Charles Betito Filho, of the São Paulo Shambhala Center, was the inspiration, brains, and motivation behind the 18-month (mais ou menos) project.

Drawing directly from the Sakyong’s book Running With the Mind of Meditation, Charles has shown us exactly what we might be capable of by applying the teachings to our daily lives with exertion and skill.

“This project was something that President Richard Reoch first began to investigate with me while in Chile for the Kalapa Governance Gathering, in 2011,” says Charles. “The main idea was to bring the concepts from the book, Running With the Mind of Meditation, to everyday life so that people can expand that experience.”

It is interesting that the first Shambhala-inspired app – Shambhala’s latest venture into the world of social technology – should be based on running meditation, rather than a traditional meditation timer, practice calendar, or daily contemplation application. However, as we know from the Sakyong’s continued encouragement and emphasis on “embodiment,” sports-as-mind-training is quickly growing in popularity and significance in this modern age. Perhaps it will become a method that Shambhala can harness to connect to greater numbers, and in greater depth.

“I believe that we can use the internet and especially mobile platforms to transform the world,” says Charles. “Through this, we bring people together to share their wisdom and mindful experiences. Through community-based mindfulness Apps, we discover that we are not alone – we all want to change the world and make it a better and more gentle place.”

  1. Great idea but I was not able to create profile without linking to either twitter or facebook. As I do not use any of them I am unable to finish the setup and to use the app. Any solution to that?

  2. Very nice. How would we send suggestions or any issues that we may find? The App Support link goes to the company site (http://www.hive.com.br/ ) Is there a page there that we should use?

  3. Thank you for your comment Kevin. My idea is to listen to all comments and suggestions of people, so we can release a good app update and then we can start doing the android version. It is certainly on our to do schedule. :-)

  4. This app is awesome! I used it during a run (actually mostly a walk) yesterday and it was so cool to have the Sakyong cut into the music every few minutes and present some insight or wisdom teaching. It really is special! Thanks HIVE, Shambhala and Shambhala Sao Paulo!

  5. This is exciting news! Will there be an app for the Android platform? It is a platform with more use than iOS; an app for both platforms will allow for more people to use this fantastic program!
