ReWire by Seated Monkey
“There are many ways to acquire concentration skill. If I had to choose just one, it wouldn’t be mantra, or focusing on the breath, or visualizing; it would be noting vanishings. ReWire is a way to make this skill-building technique fun and interesting -- a truly modern approach to mindful awareness.” ~ Shinzen Young, author The Science of Enlightenment
"ReWire is a beautifully executed example of a new class of technologies which not only entertain, but actually train, your mind and heart. Yes, there’s an app for that.” ~Vincent Horn, Buddhist Geeks
ReWire follows in the tradition of ancient meditative tools like bells, beads and mandalas to offer a modern approach to meditation that increases mental clarity, focus and equanimity using your own music, brain entrainment audio and an innovative interactive mechanic.
How it Works:
Simple, geeky, and effective, ReWire makes every moment of your meditation count. No more mind wandering or wasted cushion time -- ReWire is interactive and fully customizable, so you stay present and focused the entire time. You’ll get quicker, deeper results.
ReWire accesses your iTunes library so you can practice with your favorite music or our custom made brain entrainment audio tracks to take your sessions to the next level. You’ll get a customized, compelling experience, from Bach to the Beastie Boys. During a session, the sound will randomly vanish. Tap the screen as quickly as possible to note each “vanishing.” If you miss one (or tap when there wasn’t one), ReWire will give you a vibratory cue, so you stay more focused and present, all session long.
ReWire is a highly efficient training practice for your mind: the more you use it, the stronger your concentration “muscles” become, making you more focused and present, during sessions and in daily life.
ReWire lays down the wisdom, gimmick-free. It’s inspired by the ancient, powerful meditation practice of focusing on “cessation.” (That’s geek speak for whenever sensory events abruptly end.) ReWire IS meditation -- optimized.
During a session, you’ll get instant feedback cues to keep your meditation on track. After your session, you’ll get metrics on time, accuracy, and speed. Plus, you can track your progress over time and share results with friends. (That’s ego-free boasting.)
For the first time, you can see objective measurements of your mindfulness with "Practice Points". Practice Points boils down all of the factors that create a successful meditation practice; Session Length, Consistency, Difficulty and Performance. It's designed to easily track and inspire your practice.
