Dan Harris, popular ABC News Anchor and Investigative Reporter had an ‘On Air’ meltdown in front of 5 million people.
When I first received the book I was curious as to how I could have ‘missed’ that, because I watch the News pretty religiously.
Oh, Duh, at the time, I was in the middle of my own full blown health crisis. Oh well.
Not to be deterred or miss anything, I looked up Dan’s ‘panic attack’ online.
Didn’t look too bad to me, of ‘course after 8 years of Interviewing Health Experts and Thought Leaders, I’m used to people saying weird things.
Anyway, lucky for us, Dan’s health ‘crisis’ led him to write his Bestselling Book, ‘10% Happier’. His honest and often, believe it or not, funny account of how he dealt with his ‘On Air’ panic attack.
Turns out learning to Meditate was a big part of his recovery.
In this Interview you’ll hear –
His theory of why he had the panic attack in the first place.
How he became interested in the practice of Meditation as a ‘solution’.
What he thinks about ‘self help’ and ‘positive thinking.’
And you’ll hear about his visit to a 10 Day meditation retreat in, of course, California, where he mastered meditation and learned to tame the ‘voice in his head’.
You can hear the Interview Saturday 5/17 at 5 PM on the Radio in Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo on AM 1440 or streaming here.
The archived Interview is available here on 5/18/14.
