"I think mindfulness meditation is very well suited to becoming more aware of our how minds work and doing something about it."
~ Robert Wright
"Do I think one minute is going to be the thing that changes your life? It could be really powerful, but...what I love about one minute is it's a very low-cost option. Very few barriers to entry.
Because if you start saying, Oh, I don't have a minute to meditate, we really got to start evaluating some things going on in your life, because you definitely need more than meditation if you make that argument.
It's hard to argue yourself out of it."
~ Cory Muscara
"The proposition here is not that you should be rendered by mindfulness into some lifeless, nonjudgmental blog. The proposition is that you should learn how to respond wisely to things that happen to you rather than just reacting blindly."
~ Dan Harris
"I think we’re looking at meditation as the next big public health revolution." ~ Dan Harris
"Meditation suffers from a towering PR problem, largely because its most prominent proponents talk as if they have a perpetual pan flute accompaniment. If you can get past the cultural baggage, though, what you'll find is that meditation is simply exercise for your brain. It's a proven technique for preventing the voice in your head from leading you around by the nose. To be clear, it's not a miracle cure. It won't make you taller or better-looking, nor will it magically solve all of your problems. You should disregard the fancy books and the famous gurus promising immediate enlightenment. In my experience, meditation makes you 10% happier. That's an absurdly unscientific estimate, of course. But still, not a bad return on investment."
