Medical student launches groundbreaking meditation app for black community

The Amani app helps the black community overcome challenges and lead fulfilling lives through a unique meditation experience.

Los Angeles, CA – March 01, 2022 – Black adults are 20% more likely to report severe psychological distress than white adults. Life isn’t easy, and it’s even harder for the black community – the prevalence of high blood pressure among African Americans in the United States is among the highest in the world. In the midst of this crisis, a medical student, JR Gibson, offers to make things a little better. The dynamic medical student recently launched a revolutionary meditation app specifically for the black community that is scientifically designed to keep stress at bay and achieve mental calm and overall well-being.

Titled “Amani App”, the application is compatible with iOS and Android devices. The word “Amani” translates to “peace” in Swahili.

What differentiates the Amani app from the usual meditation apps on the market is its unique design. For starters, it’s the FIRST meditation app specifically developed for the black community. History has it that the black community has long been victims of racial abuse and violence, which has made life more difficult for the community than others. Amani is the FIRST meditation app that has been designed with the typical difficulties in mind that are particularly experienced by people of color.

“Meditation can be an important tool in solving the problems we have faced in black communities around the world since historic times. The psychological benefits of meditation have been proven by modern science. According to leading scientific publications like Psychology Today, neuroscientists have found that meditation is able to shift brain waves from the stress-prone right frontal cortex to the calmer left frontal cortex, making a person calmer and happier than ever. before,” Gibson shared.

Meditation began in ancient Africa with some of the world’s oldest civilizations leaving evidence that meditation was used in their daily lives. The Amani app combines the power of meditation with music to benefit the black community.

“The Amani app infuses this ancient art of meditation with types of music that are close to the heart of the black community – music that the community can relate to or relate to, such as R&B, hip-hop and neo-soul.With guided meditation sessions, the musical arrangement helps create a unique and highly effective meditation experience for people of color.

According to Gibson, meditation helps in so many other ways besides fighting stress –

  • Reduces anxiety issues by lowering stress hormone levels in the blood
  • Helps improve creativity, concentration, memory, concentration and the ability to solve complex problems
  • Helps lower blood pressure
  • Helps achieve emotional stability, self-acceptance and self-realization

Amani users will receive –

  • guided meditation sessions
  • daily affirmations
  • special mindfulness exercises.
  • Daily yoga, pilates, breathing exercises and stretching videos that will be added in the app soon.

“Our app is designed to empower the black community to overcome challenges one meditation session at a time. It will help you reach the ‘right’ zone mentally, physically and emotionally so you can carve out a healthier and more more fulfilled.
