While you're here... we've included snippet from a recent edition of our "Meditation Weekly" newsletter with Jay Michaelson.
We are approaching the longest nights of the year. These are the days when human bodies tend to slow down, to add more weight for the winter, to sleep. And, not coincidentally, these are the days in which cultures around the world celebrate light: first Diwali, then Chanukah, then Christmas. And other festivals as well.
For many people, the good cheer and family time of the holiday season ease the burden of darkness. Yet for many others, the holiday season is the most difficult of the year, and the relentless major-key music and myths of family harmony only worsen the natural ebbs of December. Many people are at their loneliest and most despondent precisely when our culture acts as though everyone is warm, partnered, and together.
Personally, I love a lot about the winter that has nothing to do with presents from friends or the presence of loved ones. I love the steam rising from laundry vents, the indoor smells of incense and firewood, the warmth of thick stew. I even love, sometimes, the alterations in my mood: more solitude, more loneliness, more melancholy. They go together, the winter outside and the winter of the heart. There is a song of winter, but for me, it is composed in minor keys more than major ones.
Not surprisingly, these movements of winter parallel those of contemplative practice.
First, there is a subtle joy that emerges simply from yielding; from letting go the urge to be happy in a certain way, to celebrate the season in a certain way. This is familiar from meditation: as soon as I stop trying to relax, I can relax. As soon as I stop trying to feel joy, I can feel joy. The primary obstacle to happiness is the relentless search for happiness.
You can feel this somatically in meditation. There’s often a straining or tensing of muscles when there’s a straining to feel a certain way. Quickly the search for happiness turns, like TV commercials in December, into its opposite. When I let my feelings be what they are, there’s a joy in releasing that resistance.
Second, I find a joy in the transparency of truth – or, if you prefer, of non-denial. Sylvia Boorstein, whose teachings I quote often perhaps because she is so good at pithy phrases, often talks about phrases like “it’s not what I wanted, but it’s what I got.” This can sound like wallowing in self-pity, but in fact it’s the opposite: it’s the courage, and the joy, of being truthful with experience. I may have wanted something else, but, as the cliché goes, it is what it is. I can “be with my experience,” as long time meditators often say, without BS’ing myself about what that experience is. That feels great...

I am really enjoying learning to meditate for the first time (to clarify, this is not my first time trying to learn to meditate, it’s just the first time I find myself actually enjoying and looking forward to it each day)!! LOL I highly recommend this app over any of the others out there (trust me, I have tried them ALL). To explain, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the other apps, it’s just that this one feels so much more accessible and doable. Like you are not alone in this, if that makes sense? I find myself wanting to go back to it several times throughout my day...and I can! There are meditations for just about ANY situation or current mental state, and any amount of time available. I can’t really explain why this one works so well compared to the others, it just DOES! Please do yourself a favor and give it a try with the free one-week trial. You honestly won’t regret it!! :-)
If you enjoy Dans perspective you will find this a great entry point to the world of meditation. It is simple and attainable and you will likely see benefits in your life quickly(if you are ready:)
This app is truly teaching me. I am grateful for both what it is trying to do and for what it has done.
I have tried out a lot of different apps and recorded programs over the years. I use mediations as a means to manage stress. This is the first app that has solid teaching and expert help. The videos with experts are really helpful and informative, providing much more value to the app. Totally worth the subscription for me.
This here Man is absolutely amazing and couldn’t be more on point regarding the elements in our lives that we allow ourselves to consume ourselves so to say.... Thank you for sharing these truths and exercises to help me get a better understanding and confirm a few certain areas in my life that needed to be polished. ~$tormyJ@y~
I really liked the intro and then guided meditation, and though it seemed much too short a session it really seemed to work for me. I hope the Happiness App doesn’t lock potential clients (some free testing time to see if you like the program, then I think $50 a year to maintain it) out of hearing the meditation more than once or twice. It’s supposed to work with Siri so you can try other beginning meditations, but I was completely unsuccessful. No matter how many times I told Siri to “play daily meditation, etc., the response was to re-record my phrase. No directions other than keep talking to Siri, so if this keeps up I will regretfully cancel this lovely app!
I’ve been trying to meditate for 20 years, with little success. I’m loving 10%happier for the grounded, simple, approachable, calming presentation of this practice. I look forward to it every morning (and that’s not been my previous experience!) and I feel like I’m truly learning how to integrate the practice into my daily well-being.
Dan brings a refreshing and modern inquiry to an ancient practice. The teachers he “interviews“ in a conversational style are top notch. If you are just beginning or experienced like myself, this app will enrich your practice. Don’t hesitate to go premium, totally worth it for yourself.
I have try several methods and teachings of meditation and I like the explanation on what can and will happen before going into the meditation sessions.
I have tried many meditation applications. This is the best one of I tried - by far. What makes it great it the meditation techniques are taught by experts in meditation. And there is a talk before each meditation explaining how it works and why it is useful to you. They really make the task of meditating much easier too.
