What we're about
Consciousness Hacking is a pragmatic approach to creating tools and techniques for exploring and altering our conscious experience. This meetup will range from discussion, project/experience sharing, and hands-on exploration. Think Quantified-Self meets Maker Movement meets meditation.
The brain, mind, and ultimately our underlying sense of purpose and wellbeing are the ultimate hacking frontier. But our efforts are more often than not focused on changing our external world to suit some need or desire. What if we flipped that, and focused on transforming our own subjective experience? Its not a new idea - humans have been hacking consciousness for millennia with tools like meditation, breathing, dance, music, ceremony… the list is long. All of these are forms of 'technology' evolved over thousands of years by 'scientists' relentlessly studying the fundamental nature of direct experience. Why? Because human suffering can be eradicated, from the inside out. Its this crowd, not a yogi in a cave, that has the skills and motivation to create modern tools that fundamentally transform our reality. Let us join together in exploring the wild and wide open world of consciousness hacking.
