Reviews

Reviewer: Patient group specialising in mental health problems, UK
Review: “The advantage is that the app allows people to participate in meditation, at a time that suits them. The disadvantage is that ongoing cost may put some people off it. ”

Reviewer: Royal Parks Foundation, UK
Review: “Connecting with nature has many benefits that can help lift your mood and reduce feelings of stress and tension. It’s so important to get out into nature, especially in a city. We believe parks are the best place to go and find some headspace. We've partnered with Headspace to create our very own walking meditation designed for the Royal Parks. It’s available as part of their free meditation app.”
