Music and art belong to that process. They belong to life, they are expressions of our surroundings and transmissions.”

— Maria João Pires

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.

I have been meditating for many years, or so I thought; however, it is only since I got the Imagine Clarity app that I now realize what meditation really is. This app is changing my life. I would like to thank Mathieu Ricard and all of you from the bottom of my heart for putting this wonderful app together. It is helping me survive in this time of chaos and madness, and I am so grateful to have found it. Thank you again.

Exceptional content

Incredibly good value to learn compassionate meditation and deeper insight from world renowned masters - every day! I have been using this app for over 2 years, at first irregularly and now twice a day. The benefits of this practice aids my relationships with others and my understanding of myself. I'm very grateful and happy that there is plenty of content to keep me learning and engaged for many years to come.

Genuine App for Meditation, Mindfulness & Mind training!

I have reviewed more than 100 apps on meditation, mindfulness and training the mind. The depth and clarity of teachings in this app are superlative and unmatched! Developing loving-kindness and compassion are as important as cultivating mindfulness and this is the only app which covers these aspects skilfully... In fact, access to these teachings made available to us freely by this app is priceless. Thank you, IC and the entire core team including the great teachers!

Jeanne, a friend, left this world yesterday. She was 95 years old. For several years we had been meeting every Thursday to practice meditation with Imagine Clarity. She was a Christian and has been very interested in Buddhism for the past six years. Suffering from a generalized cancer, I witnessed how her meditation practice brought her great psychological relief and a significant decrease in pain. Her doctor was the first to be surprised. In this way, Matthieu, Charles, and Alan became part of her “family of the heart”. Jeanne was a person who spent her life helping others. With Imagine Clarity, she found the oxygen that allowed her to end her life with great joy as well as answers to her questions. So I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the work you do! Thank you for helping people like Jeanne and everyone else. Long live Imagine Clarity.

To all seekers of meaning,

pioneers of inner peace and world peace, pilgrims for a better world to bequeath to future generations, I can only ardently recommend the Imagine Clarity app. With the accompaniment of its unique, knowledgeable, rigorous and loving guides who wonderfully combine their skills in the service of everyone’s progress, this site becomes more accessible and inspiring from the first day on. I can only advise with conviction to dive into this wonderful odyssey with the Imagine Clarity. I entered this app as one enters religion: with devotion.

The essential guide in your pocket

It is stunning. After reading a good number of Matthieu's books I never suspected he had more to offer. 'Imagine Clarity' is the extra dimension like the extra coats of varnish that add luminescence to a Stradivarius violin. You are kidding yourself that you are too far along to benefit from 'Imagine Clarity'. Best for beginners and well-worn travellers alike. It is the Dojo of developing wisdom heart and wisdom mind. If you can gain enlightenment by staring at your phone, Matthieu Ricard's 'Imagine Clarity' is the surest path. The money spent is nothing compared with what you get for the price of admission into 'Imagine Clarity’...

Reliable and profound

This app is great, especially the content, coming from people who live and believe what they teach. Not just another trendy meditation app, an application to guide you on the path of the transformation of the mind. Thank you.

Absolutely the best meditation app out there

I have tried a few and this one is the winner. The UX is simple and doesn't have any fancy features, although is well organized and has beautiful pictures, extra resources, and a helpful tracker/stats + timer. But what truly matters, the content, is just excellent. The people behind the scripts, structure, and narrative are serious mediators themselves with a profound understanding of the subject. The guided meditations go beyond the feel-good approach of other apps and provide insightful instructions and sufficient explanations. I highly recommend it.

I have meditated my way through a rough year and I stand in my light with love in my heart and that has made everything better. I now meditate every morning with my husband (he joined about 250 days ago), so that is great. I have created a support group with about 12 people that send me a text when they are finished and I do the same towards them to keep them at it... they like that very much and I like paying it forward.

So I say thank you for the work you have done and this program is really helpful for a lot of people, I cannot talk about it enough with other people. Love the voices and the love that you bring to the world. Thank you from the depth of my heart for that.

An application that is well worth its price

I have been trying to practice mindfulness meditation for a year. I have an account in many applications in the Apple Store, and along my path I feel the benefits that this practice can bring me. I was missing a real apprenticeship to be perfectly in tune. I found it with Imagine Clarity. Congratulations and a huge THANK YOU for your work. My contribution through the paid subscription is little compared to the benefit I get from your application.
