Beginner’s Mind is a beautiful concept in Zen Buddhism known as shoshin.
It refers to exploring and observing things as they are, with an attitude of openness and curiosity. The beginner's mind is the mind of compassion.
Mindfulness is related to Beginner's Mind.
It can be described as being mindful here and now.
There is, of course, a lot going on in the moment.
You are therefore guided to pay attention to what has been proven to be helpful to focus on.
You do not have to perform by visualizing or trying to understand something special.
You just have to experience what is.
This kind of attention has been shown to be very healing.
The music is made to improve the effect of your meditation and is tailored to each separate exercise.
The sounds will help you to stay focused.
How you breathe has a direct effect on your mood.
The meditations focus on the kind of breathing that activates our calm and soothing system.
Humans have always, from different beliefs and perspectives, used meditation as a technique to calm the mind and find inner peace.
Through regular meditation, you become aware of how your mind works.
It becomes easier to stop ruminating.
Research shows that as little as five minutes of meditation reduces the level of cortisol (a stress hormone) in your body.

My name is Madeleine Hådén. I am a psychotherapist licensed in Sweden.
After working within psychiatry for a number of years, I felt tired and burned out. I tried yoga and meditation over a weekend and became fascinated. How could these simple exercises make me so calm and happy?
So I set out to understand how breathing and concentration affect us so deeply.
In 2006 I developed a method for teaching mindfulness meditation in groups. I have since then created specialty groups for people with anxiety and depression. These groups have received the most appreciation and gratefulness from the participants.
Many of my patients have asked for an app with my meditations, which has contributed to the making of BiM.
I am so grateful to all the people I have met in my work with mindfulness and meditation. You have taught me a tremendous amount and made this app possible.
I would love to get feedback-
