★★★★★ A+! Newbie to pro in a month! When I bought this app, I was only a beginner looking for a timer to help me stay focused during meditation. To my delight, I got an arsenal of helpful tools that propelled me "head-first" into mindfulness. The many great features of this app have allowed me to remain mindful of my practice and of my progress. After only a month and a half of using it, I've been able to work myself up to 40 minute meditations- a feat I used to think impossible!! The best part is I can't wait to start my next session! ... Overall this is an amazing app and well worth downloading! A+
Get to the heart of your practice. Lotus Bud’s foundation is aligned with the foundation of your practice; simple meditation. Just pick a length and press play. It’s the way it should be. Use the standard Timed mode, Untimed, for more of a challenge, or Until a specified time, great for when you’ve got some time before leaving the house in the morning.
Go deeper. Tailor your meditation for more in-depth practice by grouping multiple sessions together. Add as many sessions as you want, mixing and matching Timed and Untimed sessions in any way that meets your needs as a meditator. Take advantage of a quiet weekend and have your own Retreat wherever you are.
Reach your milestones easily. Goals are gentle encouragement, nudging you towards your deepest intentions. Set up an Ongoing or Challenge Goal. Ongoing, continuously encourages you to keep a steady practice. Challenges are set up for a fixed number of days and help you kickstart your practice. Both give you a stunning visual representation of your progress.
Propel you practice from the cushion into the world. Modeled after a practice in Buddhist monasteries, it’s a powerful practice to keep you mindful. Activate the Mindfulness Bell and it sends you gentle reminders of your intention for your practice through the day.
A great way to see you meditation and all you've accomplished. Timeline shows a graph of your meditations and a heat map of, when you've been in the groove, meditating every day, and when you've faultered. This allows you to easily see your patterns and how you've built your healthy habit of meditation.
Cultivating your individualized meditation practice has never been easier than it is with Lotus Bud.
