Learn to meditate (even if you are nervous)

At 11 a.m. PDT, you can hear from special guest speaker Dan Harris, an Emmy-winning journalist, Good Morning America anchor and author of the best-selling book Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. After having a national television panic attack in 2004, Harris embarked on a long and often bizarre journey that ended with the discovery of mindfulness meditation. Today, Harris will discuss his journey as well as books, podcasts, and app that have helped millions deal with stress and worries in today’s world — including former non-believers like himself. (Want a sneak peek? See Harris’ app Ten Percent Happier.)
