The benefits of not being a jerk to yourself - Dan Harris


TED Talk

After more than 20 years as an ABC News anchor, an on-air panic attack sent Dan Harris's life in a new direction: he became a dedicated meditator and, to some, even a guru. In a wise, funny talk, he shares his years-long quest to improve his relationships (starting with himself) and explains the science behind loving-kindness meditation, how it can boost resiliency and quiet your inner critic.
