What’s in the “Theory” section of the app?
In the Theory section of the app, you’ll find an ever-growing library of content--including Lessons, Conversations and Q&As--that will take you on a deeper dive into ideas and concepts introduced in the Introductory Course and revisited in Daily Meditations.
Lessons are short talks given by Sam Harris on a variety of topics related to meditation and mindfulness. Some example themes include: the logic of meditation practice, the importance of gratitude, consciousness, mortality, and free will, among many others.
Conversations are long-form conversations between Sam and a range of scientists, scholars, and teachers that explore meditation, mindfulness and adjacent topics like building habits, psychedelics, and the science of happiness. Conversation guests include James Clear, David Whyte, Leo Babauta, Jack Kornfield, Adyashanti, and many others.
In Q&As, you’ll find 2 tracks from Sam Harris, where he answers top FAQs from the community about meditation, the Waking Up app, and related topics. There are also 3 additional Q&As featuring Sam Harris and guests (Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, and Loch Kelly).
