908 episodes

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.

    Here's What I Learned From Writing A Whole Book About Meditation | Dan Harris

    Here's What I Learned From Writing A Whole Book About Meditation | Dan Harris

    This episode comes out for free on March 4th and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers.

    The tables have turned: Dan is interviewed by two of his producers.

    This is the kickoff episode of our upcoming series celebrating the 10th anniversary of Dan’s book, where two of Dan’s producers, DJ Cashmere and Lauren Smith, interview him.

    We talk about the story behind the book, what it was like to have a panic attack on national television, why Dan decided to admit it publicly, how the success of the book utterly transformed his life, and what he learned… Both while writing the book and subsequently.

    We talk about concepts such as “Respond, not react,” why our faults aren’t our fault (but they are our responsibility), and whether we all have the capacity to change. DJ and Lauren will even weigh in on how they think Dan’s doing on the score.

Thank you

The meditation w Dan Harris moved me out of a grumpy, aggravated mood right into ease and quiet in my mind. Thank you.
It was a challenging day filled with emotions that I kept fighting and then I did the meditation and they all vanished.
Thank you

Dan. The Rockies is a baseball team so I’m hoping Jokic wasn’t traded to them. He plays for the Nuggets!
