Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical journalist who had a panic attack on live national television, which led him to try something he otherwise never would have considered: meditation. He went on to write the bestselling book, 10% Happier. On this show, Dan talks with eminent meditation teachers, top scientists, and even the odd celebrity. Guests include everyone from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Brené Brown to Karamo from Queer Eye. On some episodes, Dan ventures into the deep end of the pool, covering subjects such as enlightenment and psychedelics. On other episodes, it’s science-based techniques for issues such as anxiety, productivity, and relationships. Dan's approach is seemingly modest, but secretly radical: happiness is a skill you can train, just like working your bicep in the gym. Your progress may be incremental at first, but like any good investment, it compounds over time.
New episodes come out every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for free. Listen 1-week early and to all episodes ad-free with Wondery+ or Amazon Music with a Prime membership or Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.

    Myths of Love, Sex, Dating, and Relationships | Myisha Battle

    Myths of Love, Sex, Dating, and Relationships | Myisha Battle

    This episode comes out for free on Feb. 13th, and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers.

    This episode is part one of our four-part series where we’re counter-programming against the way Valentine’s Day is often celebrated, and examining different kinds of relationships including romantic, friendship, and family.

    Today’s guest hews a bit more closely to the traditional Valentine’s Day theme and will do some myth-busting around all the things we tend to get wrong when we talk about romantic relationships.

    Myisha Battle is the author of the book, “This Is Supposed to Be Fun: How To Find Joy in Hooking Up, Settling Down, and Everything in Between.” She also hosts the podcasts Down for Whatever, and Dating White. Much of her public work focuses on the early stages of relationships, but in her private practice, she counsels people at all stages, and in all kinds of relationships.

    Content Warning: Explicit language and conversations about sex.

    In this episode we talk about:
    - Five ways to improve intimacy and connection in romantic partnership
    - The nuts and bolts of sex, and how we often get intimacy and sex confused in unhelpful ways
    - Understanding men’s and women’s cycles to depersonalize issues in sex and relationships
    - The myth of finding “the one”
    - The orgasm gap
    - Bromance
    - And if you’re looking, tips on how to make finding a partner easier

    Deep Genealogy | Spring Washam

    Deep Genealogy | Spring Washam

    This episode comes out for free on February 8th, and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers.
    ---

    So many people are interested in their family tree. What kind of lives did our ancestors lead and what do their stories say about us? Today’s guest, Spring Washam, asks us to reckon with the people who have come before us in order to fully understand who we are and why we do the things we do.

    Washam is a well-known teacher, author, and visionary leader based in Oakland, California. She is the author of A Fierce Heart: Finding Strength, Courage and Wisdom in Any Moment and her newest book, The Spirit of Harriet Tubman: Awakening from the Underground. Spring is considered a pioneer in bringing mindfulness-based meditation practices to diverse communities. She is one of the founding teachers at the East Bay Meditation Center, located in downtown Oakland, CA and has practiced and studied Buddhist philosophy in both the Theravada and Tibetan schools of Buddhism since 1999.

    In this episode we talk about:
    - How Spring came to write about Harriet Tubman’s life
    - Her work with plant medicine and the shamanic traditions
    - The dream and the “conversations” Spring had with Tubman
    - Why we are all so interested in ancestry
    - How we can deepen our relationship with our ancestors
    - Family Constellation Therapy as a modality for doing ancestry work
    - Spring’s own family history
    - Why she is still processing the experience of writing her book about Harriet Tubman
    - What she means by the “inner underground railroad” and how it is alive today
    - And, how, in the inner underground railroad, freedom equates to nirvana
