Dedicated to liberation in all its forms, Deconstructing Yourself is passionate about fearlessly investigating, attempting, and questioning all things to do with awakening, meditation, mindfulness, brain hacking, consciousness, neurofeedback, and more.
Your host Michael W. Taft interviews some of the most interesting thinkers, authors, and teachers around, as well as other offerings. In this hard-hitting, radical, and fun podcast we look at secular post-, non-, un- Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta, Hindu Tantrism, philosophy, the neuroscience of the sense of self, neurofeedback and the consciousness hacking movement, aspects of artificial intelligence, entheogens, and much more.
If you’re looking for fresh directions, free from dogma and conformism, think of the Deconstructing Yourself podcast as the radical cafe where you can hear from the most interesting luminaries either from the outside edges of dharma, or a fresh take from more traditional teachers.

Terrific podcast

I just listened to the podcast on deconstructing sensory experience and found it very insightful. I’ve been a meditator for about 10 years, though only seriously for the last two, and learned a lot from it. I’ve also started reading Michael’s books, starting with “Nondualism”, and he makes things clear without oversimplifying. Looking forward to learning more, and deepening my understanding and experience of meditation. Thanks!

Straightforward Illumination

DY is a gift for the dharma curious. Soft-spoken and skillful, Michael talks with big names in meditation training. In plain language, the curious labyrinth of mindfulness becomes accessible.

Great for a Science-Oriented Beginner!

The woo jargon of meditation and awakening has always put me off. This podcast has very little of it and makes all this much more accessible!
