Meditate with Samuel B. Harris, an American author, philosopher, public intellectual, neuroscientist, and the co-founder and CEO of Project Reason.

Here he gently guides you through a brief version of a meditation method called vipassana in which one cultivates a form of attention widely known as "mindfulness." There is nothing spooky or irrational about mindfulness, and the literature on its psychological benefits is now substantial. Mindfulness is simply a state of clear, nonjudgmental, and nondiscursive attention to the contents of consciousness, whether pleasant or unpleasant. Developing this quality of mind has been shown to reduce pain, anxiety, and depression; improve cognitive function; and even produce changes in gray matter density in regions of the brain related to learning and memory, emotional regulation, and self-awareness.
