Author, meditation instructor, host of The Astral Hustle podcast and dear friend, Cory Allen returns to the mind meld!
In this one, we rap about the sweet spot between doing and being, the best tools for detangling your mind, the importance of hopping in and out of mind-altering portals carefully, and the Rock's back.
Contemplative psychotherapist, Dr. Miles Neale returns to the mind meld to guide us through the quarantine and chaos.
His book, Gradual Awakening: The Tibetan Buddhist Path of Becoming Fully Human is available now.
Dr. Neale himself is a student of Tibetan Buddhism, having studied the path for over two decades.
For more information on his contemplative studies course go here.
In this mind meld, we chat about the power of contemplative study in times like this, why we need a middle path approach more than ever, and why the hero's journey just went from hypothetical to literal for millions of people.

The Ungoogleable Michaelangelo enters the mind meld!
Michaelangelo is a mercurial multidisciplinary wonder-dipper. More specifically, he creates 'cosmic, comedic, and contemplative content. He's a multimedia artist who finds expression through visual media, music, writing, acting/performance, filmmaking, and oratory storytelling.'
You can catch his podcast, Self Portraits as Other People on apple podcasts or wherever you listen.
Professor of philosophy and cognitive science, John Vervaeke enters the mind meld!
John is the creator of a fabulous series of youtube lectures called Awakening From the Meaning Crisis that dives into everything from philosophy and psychology to psychedelics.
In this meaty mind meld, we touch on a lot -- Rationality versus empiricism, the importance of inward-facing practices, anamnesis and why mythological context is incredibly valuable. We also discuss the world's deep need for new participatory knowledge systems, a sort of neo-socratic dialogical learning modality.
