On August 19th, we began a sermon series called “Everyday Mystic: Living in Union with God and Cultivating a Life of Intimacy.” As an additional resource to this series, we are partnering with Abide — a Christian mediation app — for weekly guided meditations related to the Sunday sermons. To learn more about how to engage with the Abide app, visit their site.

Abide is offering Reality SF members three months of free premium access.  To begin using the app with premium access, you must first sign up using this form. Then download Abide for iPhone or Android and sign in with your credentials from the form.

Frequently Asked Questions:

When I sign in, the app says I am on a 15-day trial. I thought it was 90-day premium access?
Every user sees that banner when they enter the app. After the trial period is over, Reality SF users will continue to get premium access for 90 days.

Once the premium 90-day access is over, what will happen?
If premium access is not extended for Reality SF users, your account will become the basic free version.

What does premium allow me to do the basic free version does not?
Basic membership has access to the daily 2-minute meditations and topical meditations. Premium membership includes the longer daily meditations (choice of 2, 5, 10, or 15 minutes), all bedtime sleep meditations, all guides, and choice of background music.

Once I have the app, where can I find the Everyday Mystic guided reflections?
From the app’s landing page, scroll down. It is just at the bottom of the homepage.

If you are not finding it on your homepage, click on topics. Then under topics, click on “Daily.” At the top where it says “Guides,” swipe left and find the “Everyday Mystic” guide on the far right side.
