Cory Allen

 
Making mindfulness part of your daily life, especially when you’ve never done it before, can be incredibly difficult. In fact, many beginners struggle to stick with it. They get distracted by their thoughts, think that they’re not good enough at meditation, and ultimately give up before experiencing the life-enhancing benefits that are available to all of us.

Cory Allen understands this well. He’s the host of the Astral Hustle podcast and author of Now Is The Way: An Unconventional Approach To Modern Mindfulness. In his book, he explores how to use mindfulness not as a means to chill out for a few minutes in the morning and at night, but a way to rewire and retrain your brain to be conscious and present all day long.

Today, Cory joins the podcast to share what he’s learned from his countless conversations with leaders at the forefront of mindfulness, neuroscience, and philosophy. You’ll discover how his book addresses the complexities of modern society, technology, and the internet, none of which existed 50 years ago when so many classic texts on meditation were written.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How a challenging home life led Cory to turn his inner world into his sanctuary.
  • What the mindfulness gap is – and why it’s so easy for people to say “I’m fine” when they’re hunched over, tensed up, and seemingly wearing an uncomfortable suit of armor.
  • The main reasons so many meditation practices don’t last, or don’t seem like they’re working – and why repetition is key to your success.
