When you’re calm, you’ll hear peaceful weather sounds, but if your mind wanders, the weather will intensify, guiding you back to a calm state. During meditation, Muse measures the calmness or activeness of your brain, and then translates that data into weathers sounds. After each session, you’ll be able to review your data, set goals, and build a meditation practice that gets better over time. More information.
“I am an experienced meditator and I learned by reading several books, watching you tube and learning from other meditators. I have taught meditation for the last 3 years. The main question that continues to be asked is ‘Am I doing this correctly’? Even I, on difficult days, question whether I am doing ‘it’ right. After using Muse, I can now say that this device will assure that you are doing meditation correctly. It provides instruction, real time feedback during the session and great analysis post session,” said reviewer Charles on Amazon.
