Mindfulness Meditation and Awakening for Modern Mutants

At Deconstructing Yourself, we share the life changing force that is meditation. As teachers, authors, and practitioners, we strive to extend beyond any particular religion or technique in order to welcome anyone into our community. Our original articles are written with honesty, authority, and curiosity, in hopes of encouraging, informing, and inspiring your meditation practice towards actual ongoing awakening.
