Meditation for Fidgety SkepticsDownloadable Audiobook - 2017
From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller 10% Happier ?this book will get you to meditate! With the same humor, candor, and practical advice that made him one of the freshest, most inspiring voices to come along in years, ABC News anchor Dan Harris now debunks all the myths, misconceptions, and self-deceptions that keep you from meditating so you'll quit procrastinating and get your butt on the cushion. Interested in meditation, but allergic to woo-woo? Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for people who drank kombucha, played ultimate frisbee, listened to Enya, and used the word "namaste" without irony. Then he had a full-blown panic attack on live television (five million views on YouTube!) and on his way to sanity, discovered meditation for himself and became a convert. His memoir about this experience, 10% Happier, became a #1 bestseller and made readers (fidgety skeptics like himself) curious about meditating. But then . . . in his travels, Dan encountered a lot of people who said they wanted to meditate, but couldn't quiet their mind, didn't have time, felt weird and culty doing it, etc. So he set out on a cross-country trek with Jeffrey Warren, a master meditation teacher (a "Meditation MacGyver"), to get to the root of the problem. The result is a book that, with irony and insight, confronts and dismantles all the reasons you're not meditating?and provides a range of meditation practices that meet you where you are in your life and offer you the chance to become 10% happier, for real.
