Meditation in the News: Dan Harris on Why He Meditates

Dan Harris – News Anchor for ABC’s Good Morning America, took up meditation a few years ago and is now an avid exponent of the practice. In his book, ‘Ten Percent Happier’, he tells the story of his own journey from extreme sceptic to enthusiast. Great to have such an articulate, lucid and concise spokesperson for the tradition.
But what really blew my mind about this video were his ending remarks. Back in January 2014 I concluded an address to a CISCO conference by predicting that because of the compelling science, within five or ten years meditation would be as widely accepted a necessary part of a healthy daily routine as exercising and brushing your teeth.
When I saw Dan Harris’s video I couldn’t believe it. He repeats my statement virtually word for word, right down to the teeth. A nice piece of cosmic serendipity.
