Join ABC news anchor Dan Harris and Jeff Warren (the MacGyver of meditation teachers) for an evening of discussion and practice. Bring your meditation questions…what’s holding you back? They’ll help you up your game!
Dan Harris is perhaps the most unlikely meditation evangelist, ever. After a panic attack on Good Morning America, he wrote the New York Times bestselling memoir 10% Happier about what led him to embrace a practice he’d long considered ridiculous. He then started the 10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics app with a handful of bona fide meditation teachers, including Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg.
Now here’s what’s troubling Dan: The perception of meditation is shifting from weird and ‘culty’ to trendy and beneficial. But despite this evolution, most people aren’t actually meditating. So Dan recruited Jeff Warren, founder of the Consciousness Explorers Club in Toronto, to head cross-country (in a 10% Happier rock star bus) to figure out what’s standing in the way of a regular practice for all sorts of Americans–and help them knock down these challenges. This road trip will serve as the catalyst for a new 10% Happier book (January 2018) and a series of courses on the 10% Happier app.
Can’t find the time to meditate? Worried you are doing it wrong? Concerned that meditation will make you lose your edge? Whether you are aiming to getting started, having trouble staying consistent, or just want to up your game, let Dan and Jeff take a shot at “MacGyvering” your mind.
