Meet Chade-Meng Tan, The Teacher Of Google’s Enrichment Class
Chande-Meng Tan’s official job title at Google used to be “engineer”; these days, it’s “jolly good fellow.”

Tan’s official job description at Google is to “enlighten minds, open hearts, create world peace,” which he does by teaching an enrichment class for employees at the search engine’s Silicon Valley headquarters. He spoke with HuffPost Live’s Caroline Modarressy Tehrani on Friday to explain more about his journey and the philosophies he shares with his Google colleagues.

“The biggest hurdle, especially when it comes to learning mindfulness and meditation, is that people try too hard,” he said. “And actually, the person who did that the worst was me. When I started meditating, I couldn’t even breathe because I was trying so hard. I lost my ability to breathe. I was the worst meditator in the history of the world. The solution to that is the ability to balance effort with letting go.”

Watch the full HuffPost Live conversation with Google’s jolly good fellow Chade-Meng Tan below.
