Sam Harris on Waking Up by Sam Harris

Sam Harris on Waking Up

by Sam Harris


Title Details

Best-selling author, philosopher, and neuroscientist Sam Harris discusses how a non-believer might approach spiritual transcendence in this conversation with secular humanist Greg Epstein. Recognizing that many religions try to address what will make human beings truly happy, Harris has always felt there was something valid to mindfulness practice and has been meditating for much of his life. Though meditational practice is steeped in various religious traditions, Harris argues that it is still possible for an atheist to experience a similar spiritual self-transcendence that is stripped of supernatural associations. He also addresses some of the meditation retreats he's taken, the spiritual teachers he's met, the problem he's had with gurus, and the essential importance of love, family, and community. This talk is offered by the Humanist Community at Harvard University and is available for free on YouTube.
