Cory Allen is a sound-smith, meditation instructor and the host of the Astral Hustle podcast. Cory has taught thousands the practice of meditation through his guided workshops and delivers lectures on mindfulness and the expansion of consciousness.
Every time I talk to my friend Cory Allen it’s a tastier Swiss Cake Roll™ of absurdity and profundity. Ever since he came on the show a few months back, we’ve been keeping in touch and something has blossomed. Some sort of playful ping pong of creative scheming, insight and wild degenerate goof sessions that would probably get us banned from everything for life if they ever leaked out.
I like this recipe. If I’m not laughing enough in a conversation, it’s like there’s a very important spice missing or something. I've found there's absolutely Goldilocks zone of high highfalutin idea slinging and satire and (at least as from my perspective) Cory and I wiggle right into that nook.
