On this episode, a bad news / good news situation. Let’s start with the bad news: human beings are not wired for uncertainty. It short circuits our system. The mind wants to plan, to work things out – and, in a pandemic, that is basically impossible. The good news: meditation is perfectly designed to take the edge off, if not more. Dan Harris and I talk about: how to use meditation to embrace uncertainty, the importance of getting in touch with your own “tainted glory,” and why we shouldn’t fear the schmaltz.
