Meditation For Skeptics With ABC News' Dan Harris


All of us experience moments where our confidence fades but ABC’s Dan Harris had one on live television on Good Morning America.  The news anchor’s panic attack led him on a journey to discover a way to quiet his internal critic, something about which he had always been skeptical:  Meditation.  Dan Harris joins us along with Dr. Russ Greenfield to talk about the scientifically-backed benefits of practicing mindfulness.
