Learning how to meditate can seem intimidating. As with developing any new skill, learning the basic techniques is essential for building a foundation. You can get more formal and structured as you develop your practice, but it’s best to start simple.
That’s where buddhify has you covered. Our guided meditations are easy to follow and great for beginners. It’s like having a teacher in your pocket. You won’t need to do anything but press play.
Here are some people who have successfully used the app to learn how to meditate.
“Buddhify is simply THE best mindfulness meditation app I have ever come across. I am a regular user of this app and can completely recommend it to anyone seeking guidance in mindfulness and/or meditation.”

“Buddhify is great! It helps you learn a lot about meditation and how to do in the right way.“

“Meditation can make us better people and this app shows us how to do it easily and as often as we like.”
“I love this app, partly because I find it beautiful and intuitive to use and partly because the guidance is detailed and clear.”
“I was so happy to come across this app. Great app and great price. Really good selection of meditations for all moods and amount of time you have. I use this app daily (life permitting). I recommend it to anyone who needs assistance or wants to learn the meaning of meditation and how to meditate efficiently.”
Absolutely! That’s the benefit of guided meditations. Each session is like a separate lesson in mindfulness — giving you all the information you need to do the exercise from start to finish.
In general, many of our meditations start with the instruction to make sure your body is comfortable, your back is fairly upright, and your belly is nice and soft. You can close your eyes or keep them open — whatever feels most natural. With that said, at buddhify, we are all about meditation done differently. This means we have meditations designed for sitting down, lying down, and being on the go … so just follow along with each track.
If you prefer to get a bit more background before practicing, try reading our in-app Foundations content. The purpose of these mini-articles is to give you insight into how meditation works, the buddhify approach, and other information that will support your understanding and practice beyond the guided meditations.
Yes! Our shorter sessions are immensely helpful for both learning how to meditate and for getting your everyday mindfulness fix in the long term. And if you are interested in taking things to the next level, there is a Membership option with a Formal wheel with 45 to 60 minute tracks, video courses, weekly practice themes, and other bonus features to help you as you progress on your meditation journey.
