Mind Meld 37 | Persona Smashing with Cory Allen
Creative tetrahedron, Cory Allen returns for another mind meld. Cory is a meditation instructor, creates binaural beats, makes music and hosts the Astral Hustle podcast. Speaking of which, this is a two-part conversation. Check out the other half of our chat on Cory’s site!
Thanks to the great turkey sacrifice of 2016 (not to be confused with Thanksgiving) Cory Allen is finally allowing me to release part two of our conversation (listen to part one on Cory’s cast).
I’m not sure why Cory demands so much avian blood for every cast we do and when I heard about the amount he was expecting for this two-part conversation, it sounded downright impossible.

So what did I do? I scoured my rolodex for hours considering every devolved dinosaur destroyer I knew. Finally, I landed on the answer. But man, I knew he wasn’t going to like being bothered, especially this time of year. I took a deep breath, swallowed my better judgement and made the call anyway (you’ll have to listen to the intro to find out who this bird blood merchant is).
Anyway, transmutation turkey of life energy aside, Cory Allen is a tetrahedron of creativity. He’s a meditation instructor, he creates binaural beats, hosts the Astral Hustle podcast and is an ambient music maestro.
