100% Happier

Thank you for all you do to shine a light on what I call “real neuroses” and how to deal with it on the daily. We can never underestimate what hearing and sharing our experiences can do to help us make sense of our monkey minds. May you go from strength to strength.

Disappointed

Hi Dan- why not interview a normal, everyday person who is willing to share their experience about meditation? It seems that all of your guests are these famous celebrity workaholics who are able see past their narcissism after finding meditation. I understand the desire to interview famous, “successful” people, but the story becomes really repetitive, and in doing so you are actually perpetuating this very American culture that glorifies success and working to extreme measure.

Interview a mother, a grandmother. A dad who was always there for their kid. An art teacher in a middle school. Maybe people
will realize that there are answers inside of themselves without commoditizing meditation.

Simply put: required for living

Having waded through many techniques and approaches to mindfulness, awareness, living gently, I say with some confidence that this app gives you the best access-the most direct path-with the highest quality results. That’s mainly a function of presenting the highest quality teachers in a format that’s easy and compelling to use. At least ten percent happier (and more present, aware) simply will result. Few things are as certain or simple.
