Jessica Graham and Michael W. Taft — The DY Team

Deconstructing Yourself was created to share the life changing force that is meditation. 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 and curiosity, in hopes of encouraging, informing, and inspiring your meditation practice. And we definitely don’t shy away from being controversial.

We cover issues that affect us all: heartbreak, death, love, sex, religion, art, and how meditation can help to enliven and transform them.

In our news section we bring you articles on cutting edge studies that show the numerous benefits (and sometimes the drawbacks) of meditation. Research is constantly uncovering yet another way that a meditation practice can enhance our lives.

Meditation is evolving away from being something only for those immersed in a specific religion. We are deeply interested in being a part of conversation about the future development of the contemplative arts. We hope to be a place for all who are dedicated to exploring themselves, others, and the world with meditation.
