Storyboard Text

  • Reporting live from Afghanistan. . .
  • I'm Pastor Ted! Eventually, I'll get kicked out of my church for hypocrisy & repression of my true feelings.
  • Dan Harris is a young ABC War Correspondent. His job is very stressful because he is constantly competing for air-time.
  • Eckhart Tolle
  • "It's becoming friendly with the is-ness of this moment."
  • Deepak Chopra
  • Once back home, Harris experiences severe anxiety so he goes to a psychiatrist who diagnoses him with depression.
  • Harris is then assigned to be a Religious Correspondent for the station. While he enjoys learning about how and what people believe, his stress and depression is still present. 
  • Harris starts researching self-help gurus (for work and personal reasons), but ultimately finds their teachings unrealistic and unfulfilling.
  • Harris talks to Professor Epstein about Buddhism, and is instantly hooked. Buddhism and mindfulness offer Harris a realistic way to have better control over his thoughts and reactions.
  • Per Epstein's suggestion, Harris goes to a famous Buddhist meditation retreat. It is very trying, but eventually Harris has a breakthrough and feels a lot better. After the retreat, Harris meditates at home and work to keep from getting too stressed/ upset.
