The 2023 Schooler Lecture will feature a moderated discussion with mental health advocates Ginger Zee and Dan Harris. Zee, the chief meteorologist at ABC News and the managing editor of ABC’s Climate Unit, put a very relatable if surprising face on depression, helping to lessen the stigma surrounding mental health issues, through her books “Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I am One.” and “A Little Closer to Home: How I Found the Calm After the Storm.” Harris is the author of the #1 New York Times best-selling book “10% Happier,” a book about a fidgety, skeptical news anchor who stumbles upon meditation. He has become a leading voice for pushing for the practice into the mainstream and has spoken about the topic across corporations, health and wellness organizations, and schools and universities. “10% Happier” is available as a meditation app and in podcast form. Harris’ most recent book, “Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics,” is also on the best-selling list.
