For Life on Purpose Episode #81, my guest is Christopher Plowman, CEO of Insight Timer, the most popular meditation Timer in the world. Home to more than 3 million meditators, Insight Timer is rated as the top free meditation app on the Android and iOS stores.
NOTE FROM GREG: I’ve personally been using Insight Timer nearly every day since early 2014; it’s easily my favorite and most valuable app, which is why I was excited to have this conversation with Christopher!
Christopher joined me for an insightful conversation on a variety of topics, including:
- The history of Insight Timer and its original developer Brad Fullmer;
- The challenges of maintaining his own meditation practice;
- The value of community to meditation;
- The Maharishi Effect;
- His past ventures in the start-up world and how IT is different; and
- The crucial importance of keeping the app free for everyone.
