Mainstreaming Meditation

Dan Harris is a correspondent for ABC News, an anchor for Nightline, and a co-anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America. After experiencing a panic attack on live television in 2004, Dan turned to mindfulness meditation for help—a journey chronicled in his book Ten Percent Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works—A True Story. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Dan and Tami Simon discuss his previous skepticism of meditation and how the practice has a branding problem among a generation raised in “the Age of Irony.” They also talk about how Dan deals differently with the world since taking up meditation. Finally, Dan and Tami speak on the real, quantifiable benefits of a regular mindfulness practice. (57 minutes)
