Sam Harris



Sam Harris

Sam Harris is a public intellectual, one of the new atheists, and regarded as a member of the intellectual dark web, and author of five New York Times best sellers, including Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion. His writing, podcasts and public lectures cover a wide range of topics—neuroscience, meditation, moral philosophy, religion, atheism, rationality—but generally focus on how a growing understanding of ourselves and the world is changing our sense of how we should live.

Sam received a degree in philosophy from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA. He has practiced meditation for over 30 years and has studied with many Tibetan, Indian, Burmese, and Western meditation teachers, both in the United States and abroad.

I am a huge fan of Sam’s work, but I have no commercial relationship with him (except indirectly as an Amazon affiliate for some of his writings) and I  am not compensated for this endorsement in any way; and offer it happily as a public service.  I am on day 40 of the Waking Up Meditation Training App and it is enhancing my practice in ways that other courses and workshops I have attended have not. I listen to a meditation and a mini-lecture every morning before I get out of bed. It provides a very sound basis for carrying on with my day.  

A great way to get started exploring mindfulness if you are a newbie and a very useful enhancement to your already existing practice
