Dan Harris Video From Skeptic to Meditator

Dan Harris is a ABC News reporter. He had a panic attack as he doing an anchor segment on air. Of all the places to not to have an attack that might be number three, a panic attack before a national viewing audience.

Anyway, he is a person who constantly declares that he is rooted in science and not woo-woo stuff.  Which I believe translates into he does not engage in faith based systems and requires proof before acceptance.

I suspect more than a few of you believe the same thing. Which is why you won't even consider meditation. That would be a mistake. It really does work. 




This is a video of Mr. Harris talking about his journey from on-screen panic attack to 10% happier via meditation.
