Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris

A Health, Fitness and Mental Health podcast featuring
 7 people rated this podcast
Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical ABC News anchor who had a panic attack live on "Good Morning America," which led him to try something he always thought was ridiculous: meditation. He went on to write the bestselling book, "10% Happier." In this podcast, Dan explores happiness (whatever that means) from all angles. Guests include legendary meditation teachers -- from the Dalai Lama to Western masters -- as well as scientists, and even the odd celebrity. But the show also ventures beyond meditation, bringing on leading researchers in areas such as social anxiety, bias, creativity, productivity, and relationships. The animating insight of this show is that the mind is trainable. This is what science is showing us. Mental traits such as happiness, calm, generosity, compassion, and connection are not hardwired, unalterable factory settings; they are, in fact, skills that can be trained. On this show, you'll learn how.

An excellent supplement for those of us trying to develop a meditation/mindfulness practice. I've enjoyed the social justice consciousness he's bringing to recent shows.
Dan Harris is a standing for the everyman and everywoman, asking simple questions of the both the spiritually accomplished and spiritual seekers on their Buddhist and Buddhist-inspired meditative paths to eliminating the fear, anxiety, and craving induced by the modern world.
Dan's a great host. I think what really makes a podcast great is when the host is sincerely curious about the subject. And Dan is curious! Thanks for this.
