In the spring of 2004, Dan Harris, co-anchor of ABC News' Nightline and Good Morning America, had a televised freak-out in front of five million people. The cause was his well-hidden drug use. Realizing he needed to get his life under control, he embarked on an educational journey, exploring everything from mainstream religion to the bizarre corners of self-help before discovering that meditation was the key to his happiness. In this event, Harris reads from his new book, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works -- A True Story, sharing his spiritual conversion for both skeptics and believers.

I was at first a little put off by the fact that the event was high up (I took the stairs, not thinking to look for an elevator!) and in a small room with a capacity of 60 (about 50 in attendance), the projector in the middle of the room and a 6' X 10' screen (approximately). I was expecting a more formal venue like a movie theater - if small. None of that mattered once the movie started. It was great and I recommend it to everyone. The film referenced a lot of different phenomena and people which I jotted down to look up/google later. Shaydac definitely had a life-altering experience and in sharing his journey helps to get those of us watching to be open to change in our own lives. I'm grateful to the NY Society for Ethical Culture and Goldstar for making the film available this way, but it should receive a wider audience. It is available on DVD and maybe through Netflix or a similar provider. Once you see it you'll want to share it, so I recommend buying a copy!
