Olivier, Google Play

Dear friends of Imagine Clarity, like so many others, I wish to express my deep appreciation for your work and for the teaching I receive through your site. It has already helped me deeply in difficult life circumstances. I just wish I had known you 40 years ago! But better late than never. Thank you.

Véronique, Switzerland

This is for now maybe the best thing I have discovered in my life and I decided that's not the last. I work on it to be able to give back to you one day. How precious and beautiful!

Kitty Cat

Your companionship this year has brought me calmness, alertness, and (dare I say it) clarity in amounts I cannot measure. To sit with you each morning steadies me as the sun rises and the water boils. Before other matters rise up, as they must, I savor my time in your presence.

With gratitude for the benefit you bring to me and so many others in the world.

Such a powerful tool

Imagine Clarity is such a powerful tool. I have developed clarity of mind, desire of heart and determination of body. I progressed at my own pace, but with enthusiasm and patience. Today, I am myself without artifice or fear. Imagine Clarity is a faithful friend and a daily discipline. Do not hesitate to tap into this magical resource and offer it to others. Let’s be attentive, conscious and authentic for a better and more caring world.

With all my gratitude. Thank you.

Zakia, France

Thank you with all my ♥️ for your beautiful commitment to bring out the hidden treasures in the depths of each and every one of us. Yes, our deepest heart seeks with patience and talent to make emerge and blossom on our faces and in our lives, the goodness and the joy which nestle there and only ask to be expressed.

Patrice, Switzerland

The best of meditation because of the root of goodness, kindness and wisdom. Very different from other apps. Very authentic and giving the best fruits of practice. Sometimes, only the majestic pics by Matthieu Ricard, rich in colors and breathtaking landscapes suffice to calm me down. Also I like to listen to meditation +/- 3x before moving on in the program. Each new session is an amazing discovery and I'm glad there's still a long long way to go. You provided quality and lots. Thanks forever.

I didn’t know I needed this

Thank you so much for creating this app. I use it twice a day, at the beginning and end of the day. After a month, I already find that the quality of my interactions with my spouse, child, and coworkers has measurably improved.

I have been sleeping better, probably because of my reduced anxiety about these interactions! I have been meditating for eight years now, but without adequate instruction, I now realize. The right intention is everything, as you’d said. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Beautiful, Moving, Transformative

I LOVE Imagine Clarity... Imagine Clarity is visually beautiful and easy to navigate… and the depth of learning available in this app is incredible. If you invest 20-30 minutes a day regularly you can really learn some teachings few people ever encounter and bring powerful positive change to life… Headspace is a brightly coloured cartoonish pond, wide but shallow. Imagine Clarity is a pastel impressionist Loch, deep, majestic, full of meaning. If you’ve used Headspace in the past but run out of new teachings in the main meditation section, then look no further then Imagine Clarity to continue your journey...

This app is hands down the best meditation app for anyone serious about learning to meditate and they are two of the most …

RΛИDØM, United States

Imagine Clarity is an application unlike others: it gives us the keys to access An Art of Living. Its aesthetic quality alone illustrates this. Once started the daily ritual of extremely clear guided meditations, one feels after some time an invaluable inner benefit. Our relationship with the world is all the better for it! So thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those who work on this application.
