Restoration and Renewal Resources

We are so excited to welcome 2021! And in the spirit of starting a new year, we thought we would share over the next few weeks a few resources that might help restore and renew your mind, body and soul for a new beginning.

Today, we want to highlight the Apple Podcast titled, Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris.

Here is a description according to his website:

Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical ABC News anchor who had a panic attack live on "Good Morning America," which led him to try something he always thought was ridiculous: meditation. He went on to write the bestselling book, "10% Happier." In this podcast, Dan explores happiness (whatever that means) from all angles. Guests include legendary meditation teachers -- from the Dalai Lama to Western masters -- as well as scientists, and even the odd celebrity. But the show also ventures beyond meditation, bringing on leading researchers in areas such as social anxiety, bias, creativity, productivity, and relationships. The animating insight of this show is that the mind is trainable. This is what science is showing us. Mental traits such as happiness, calm, generosity, compassion, and connection are not hardwired, unalterable factory settings; they are, in fact, skills that can be trained. On this show, you'll learn how!

In addition to the Podcast, Dan Harris also provides a guided meditation series.
