Robin Barooah’s “Equanimity” – Meditation Tracker

Robin Barooah presented his new meditation tracker, called “Equanimity
at the recent QS Show&Tell hosted by MedHelp. A meditation practice
is a powerful tool for increased well being and yet, for something so
simple and cost-free, it surprisingly difficult to maintain. The
problem of “resistance” in meditation is well known. Even people with
long years of practice encounter resistance. I have been using Robin’s
tracker for a couple of days, and am looking forward to seeing if it
helps. One thing is already clear: it is a lovely design.

    I would love to see this on an OS that a larger portion of the world population actually uses – Symbian. Please, thank you :)

    I would like to see every single application that I’ve ever come across that looks like I might use it at some point be developed for every single platform that I use, and the ones that I might go back to using or use in the future. Please, thank you :)
    I would also like to see a frakking web site that doesn’t require JAVASCRIPT TO SUBMIT A FORM! Basic HTML people. Please, thank you.

    A good example of a “vertical” application for metering meditation – very cool. I went to a 10 day meditation retreat, 10 hours/day, in complete silence, and it was the only time in my life I came close to grand theft auto. It was really hard for me. Sitting that long is practically guaranteed to bring up some of your sh*t :-) I’d love to run a group experiment where people use Robin’s app along with a specific, simple technique (like counting breaths) and measure the benefits, if any.

    I love this idea, Matt! Maybe after the butter experiment is done, QS experiment #2 can be a group of people using Equanimity every day for a certain number of days and measuring blood pressure, mood, and/or heart rate variation before and after, or throughout. Any other instruments for measuring mindfulness or benefits?
    I’d happily participate in this experiment!! Robin, any ideas?

    I too would be very interested to know if there are any other instruments for measuring mindfulness or benefits?
