Today we have ABC News Anchor Dan Harris on the podcast. Harris is perhaps the most unlikely meditation evangelist, ever. After a panic attack on Good Morning America, he wrote the New York Times bestselling memoir “10% Happier” about what led him to embrace a practice he’d long considered ridiculous. He then started the 10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics app with a handful of bona fide meditation teachers, including Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg. He also started the 10% Happier Podcast. On today’s episode of The Psychology Podcast, we discuss Dan’s personal mindfulness journey, including his experiences with self-help gurus Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra, as well as his friendship with Western Buddhist psychotherapists such as Dr. Mark Epstein. As a bonus, there is a 3-minute mindfulness meditation led by Dan himself. Enjoy, and please leave feedback below!
