What an honour it was to podcast with Daniel.  His knowledge on the brain, Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness is second to none and he is just as wonderful in person as we could have hoped. His latest book, The Science of Meditation (or Altered Traits, as it will be known in the US) is released world-wide today, 5th September and we are proud to present our conversation Podcast with him.  This is the first episode on our new Podcast page and we would love your support and a 'follow' on the Podbean page.
