Hi, I'm Cory Allen. I am an authorpodcast hostmeditation teacher and audio engineer from Austin.


On my podcast The Astral Hustle, I discuss how to live better with leading experts in mindfulness, neuroscience, and philosophy. I believe the more we understand ourselves, the less we suffer. Other people believe this too: my podcast has had millions of downloads, received hundreds of five-star ratings, and been featured by The New York Times.

My first book titled Now Is the Way will be published by Penguin Random House on September 24, 2019.

Meditation is an effective tool for adding coherence, awareness, and compassion to life. It was so helpful to me that I decided to share my approach in an online meditation course called Release Into Now. Since then, I've taught thousands of people how to meditate with clear and concise methods.

I love music. In fact, I've been studying, writing, and producing music for over 15 years. I've released over a dozen albums. I'm also a mastering engineer that has mastered hundreds of records for other artists.
