Dan Harris: “Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics” | Talks at Google

11th June 2018

Joining ABC News in 2000, Dan Harris was on a set path towards a conventionally successful career in journalism. He anchored World News on Sunday from 2006-2011 and co-anchored the weekend edition of Good Morning America and Nightline during that time as well.

On Good Morning America, he got a panic attack on air on June 7, 2014. This prompted him to seek the help of various mental health professionals, religious leaders and self-help gurus on a quest to find a cure for his anxiety. He chronicles this search in his New York Times bestselling book “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Really Works – A True Story”. Now, he’s following up with “Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics” which documents his journey towards understanding why most Americans resist meditation despite its scientifically proven benefits.
