Demystifying Meditation

Many people struggle to adopt a consistent and effective meditation practice – a practice that has for millennia proven to be a reliable path to inner peace and insight.

In this conversation with former monk and meditation teacher Matthew Zoltan we explore the effects of indoctrination through organized religion, the fallacy of meditation techniques, life from outside-in versus inside-out, somatic expression of emotions, regulation through sensation and the long term effects of meditation.
