Mindfulness with Muse


How does it work?

Muse uses a special technology to translate your brain waves into the guiding sounds of weather. Muse is an EEG device widely used by neuroscience researchers around the world. It uses advanced signal processing to interpret your mental activity to help guide you. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear peaceful weather. Busy mind? As your focus drifts, you’ll hear stormy weather that cues you to bring your attention back to your breath.

Muse connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth.Once connected, simply start the Muse Meditation app, put on your headphones, and close your eyes. Once your session is complete, you can review your results and track your progress.

Muse Tracks Your Brain Signals

Muse is a brain fitness tool that measures brain signals much like a heart rate monitor senses your heartbeat. Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain.

Muse detects a range of brain electrical activity and transforms it into easily understandable experiences. The Muse app transforms raw brain signals into many different components - noise, oscillations, non-periodic characteristics, and transient and event-related brain events. Signal processing and machine learning techniques are applied to the brain signal components to control the experience in real time.

How Muse Helps You Focus

Muse is a state-of-the-art EEG system that uses advanced signal processing algorithms to train beginner and intermediate meditators at controlling their focus. Muse detects a range of brain electrical activity and transforms it into easily understandable experiences.

The Muse app decomposes raw brainwave signals into their component oscillations, non-periodic characteristics, transient brain events, and noise, and uses techniques developed through machine learning to make the experience responsive, in real time. Muse will help you see how your focus changed during your session. Monitoring changes and trends over time in each state helps you to track your progress.

Different Levels of your Brain Activity Muse Measures:


Wandering attention. This is time spent with a distracted mind where attention was fluctuating.


Your mind when in it's natural resting state. Attention isn't fluctuating, but there is also no deep focus present.


Deep restful focus on your breath. These are moments when you've been fully focused on your breath.
