The Consciousness Explorers Podcast (CEP) is an experiential sandbox for mind and body hosted by Tasha Schumann and Jeff Warren. Each episode is a real-time adventure, where a different guide takes us through a short meditation or personal growth practice. (That means you’re coming too!)
Afterwards, we attempt to reassemble ourselves into coherent human beings, so we can discuss what the heck just happened.
Meditation, movement, art, dreaming, voice, breath, therapy, hypnosis, critical thinking – many techniques and modalities are explored. Guides run the gamut from professional teachers and researchers to freestyle healers, artists, and innovators working things out for themselves.
Meditation and personal growth practices are exploding right now. There are more teachers and techniques than ever before. This podcast is where you get to take them for a ride. Not just by talking about them, but by actually doing the freakin’ practices!
These practices can take us to places we’ve never been, without needing to leave home. It’s fun budget travel that’s good for us. That’s because every practice is a unique window into our own peculiar nervous systems. Practice teaches us things about who we are, how to expand and grow and heal and change. By listening to Tasha and Jeff talk about what they found hard or helpful or interesting in a practice, listeners find inspiration and companionship for their own journeys.
Ultimately, the Consciousness Explorers Podcast is a way for people to connect to teachers, resources and practices that will support them in life. As we learn to become our own teachers and caregivers, we’re better able to care for others and attend to the world’s problems.
Always! Here’s Tasha with the last word:
“It’s like this: You can talk about pizza all day long, but if you want to know how pizza really tastes, you gotta take a bite for yourself.”
