10% Happier with Dan Harris – #126: Hansa Bergwall, Reminding Us That We Die So That We Live

10% Happier with Dan Harris – #126: Hansa Bergwall, Reminding Us That We Die So That We Live

Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical ABC newsman who had a panic attack live on Good Morning America, which led him to something he always thought was ridiculous: meditation. He wrote the bestselling book, "10% Happier," started an app -- "10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics" -- and now, in this podcast, Dan talks with smart people about whether there's anything beyond 10%. Basically, here's what this podcast is obsessed with: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment (whatever that means)?

Episode #126 is one of my favorites, which has Dan interviewing Hansa Bergwall, the Co-founder of a very unorthodox app called We Croak.

Without giving too much away, We Croak is a simple app that reminds you 5 times daily that some day, you are going to die. Harris and Bergwall discuss the purpose and philosophy behind the app, and the various reactions people have toward it.
