We understand that building a mindfulness practice and working on your wellbeing is a very personalized experience. Not one app, offering, or resource will be right for everyone. We encourage you to explore a variety of options and practices. Below are some recommendations for free meditation apps that may be a better fit for you and your lifestyle.
Healthy Minds: Feedback from Dartmouth community members for this free app was very positive. By translating pioneering neuroscience into tools for everyday life, through a combination of podcast-style lessons and both seated and active meditations, you'll learn what the science says about the brain while developing skills to tap into these learnings for a healthier, happier you.
Insight Timer (website and app): offers a number of free guided meditations varying in lengths, styles, and focuses. It also includes the option to set a custom timer with sounds for your own silent meditation. Developed under the guidance of a Dartmouth alumnus (Jack Kornfield '67) so that's cool!
Aura: Provides personalized, daily 3-minute meditations and the ability to track your mood.
