    Awesome! I was looking for something exactly like this. Thanks! Wouldn’t mind having one for 25 or even 30 minutes though…

    Hi Wade. Thank you very much for the timers. I use the 1 hour one and it’s great.

    When I was on your site last week, I saw a timer that chimes every minute, as an aid to mindfulness, but now I can’t find it any more. Can you help please?

    Hi Barbara,

    Sorry for the delay getting back to you. Interesting about the timer. I’ve not changed any timers over the last week or two.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying the timers.

    If you would like me to make you a custom timer with chimes every minute, or every 5th minute or something, please drop me another comment/e-mail and I will get to it for you. I have the chime files ready to insert at any length.

    May all beings be happy.

    Hi there! Your website looks really interesting. I have just started meditation and am finding it difficult to find a timer for a 20 minute meditation session that goes off every five minutes (ie: 4 times). Is there one on your website that I’m just missing, or would it be possible to please point me towards where I might find one?

    Many thanks,

    Hi Wade,

    I’ve begun practicing a Reiki form that requires a timer that chimes once every minute for 17 minutes - maybe one to start 30 seconds in, then once every minute 17 times after.

    Please let me know if you have suggestions or could put something like this together.

    Thank you so much!

    I very much enjoy the meditations you have posted here, but I fear I am not experienced enough… do you have any resources for a bit more of a guided meditation? (Not a full walking through a forest type) Maybe one that gives more aim to keeping your mind on the silence?

    Thank you for your time. ~Kim

    @Catherine, your timer’s been made and sent to you offline. I hope you enjoy it.

    @Kim, please check out my Recommended Links section. There’s a section in there on guided meditations. Hope they help.

    May all beings be happy.

    I live in a noisy area and so listen to my MP3 player while meditating to try not to be distracted. I listen to one of two small (15 minutes or so each) files of either sea scape sounds (water rushing as waves break on the beach) or nature sounds (wind blowing through the trees, birds cirping, a trickling stream). I got both from the online music service eMusic,

    I’m actually looking for an MP3 that I can run in a loop and it will sound every 2-5 minutes or so. The shorter length is for sitting while the longer one works better for me during Yoga. Seems like there should be something like this out there already?

  15. 15 Jim


    Is it possible to send/post the Reiki meditation file (which chimes once a minute) that Catherine had received?



  16. 16 Wade

    Hi Jim,

    Sure! I’ll send you the link now.

    Hi, Wade,

    Greetings from Sydney. I have been practising Mindfulness of Breathing and would really appreciate a timer which sounds at 6, 12 and 18 minutes with a final 3 chimes at 24 minutes. Could you produce an MP3 to do this ? I’d be very happy to make a donation to cover costs. Thanks for your help.

  18. 18 Wade

    Hi Tony. Yes, I’d be very happy to make your timer for you. I’ll contact you out of band soon with how/where to download it from.

    Say hi to Sydney for me!

    Wade? Are you there?

  20. 20 Jerry

    Wade? Are you gone forever? Is nothing left but the silence?

    Ah, well. One could do worse than rest in silence.

    Thank you for your thoughtful gift of timers of various types and with lovely chimes. I like the non-denomination options. I plan to use the 15, 20,30, and 50 minute timers with the simple introductory and closing chimes. This will help my personal meditation and our new meditation group as well.
