Capt Kris Drake is currently a student at the Marine Corps Expeditionary Warfighting School (EWS) in Quantico. He wrote a paper recently entitled “Breathing to Win Battles: How Meditation Can Make Better Marines” as part of a course requirement. During the Post-Traumatic Winning presentation at EWS last week Capt Drake discussed the paper with Mac. He joined the show today to talk about meditation, how it works, why it works for Marines and how he sees it as a tool to promote mental health and warfighting proficiency in stressful situations.
Captain Drake also explains a bit of cyber warfare to us at the start of the interview — great stuff!
