There are elements of mindfulness and meditation that might seem like a fad, but thishas been around for millenia. Headspace was created in 2010 by Andi Putticome and Richard Pierson. It began with a mobile app and online services that teach mindfulness through guided meditation, breathing techniques, animation and storytelling. The idea is to make it easier to incorporate a mindfulness practice into everyday life.

Guests:

Morgan Selzer, Headspace Head of Content forExecutive Producer of Headspace Guide to Meditation

Christopher Menard, Mindfulness Training Director at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Department of Psychology Clinical Assistant Professor at UIUC
