Book Dan for Speaking Events

Dan delivers a hilarious and well-honed stump speech about his wild journey to meditation, which includes combat, cocaine, and a nationally televised panic attack. He also loves to ditch the formal remarks and host a more intimate event where he guides meditation and take questions from the audience.

Dan is able to go well beyond meditation. After more than 600 interviews on his podcast, he can speak on many issues including anxiety and work/life balance. He can give a version of his popular TED talk, in which he tells the story of receiving a disastrous 360 review that led him to embrace the science behind so-called “soft skills.”

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

After more than two decades as an anchor for ABC News, an on-air panic attack sent Dan's life in a new direction: he became a dedicated meditator and, to some, even a guru. But then an anonymous survey of his family, friends and colleagues turned up some brutal feedback -- he was still kind of a jerk. In a wise, funny talk, he shares his years-long quest to improve his relationships with everyone (starting with himself) and explains the science behind loving-kindness meditation, and how it can boost your resiliency, quiet your inner critic and simply make you more pleasant to be around.
