Why do we exist? What are we supposed to do while we’re here? What is the nature of reality and what is the Self? How to Tickle Yourself is a podcast about the miracle of existence. It’s about spirituality, self-realization, and most of all - the joy of being a seeker. It’s where self-help meets philosophy, where we use the spark of inquiry to light your mind on fire. Learn how to tickle yourself, and you will discover your true purpose. And once you find that, the rest will take care of itself.
Season 1 is carved into 16 episodes, crafted to fit together like a 16-piece puzzle. We use controversy, storytelling, word origins, lyrics, writing, and ancient wisdom to explore each weekly topic. There’s even an actual puzzle to solve while you contemplate the most difficult puzzles of all, the puzzles of reality and the self. Join us each week as we put one more piece of the puzzle in place. Brought to you by Storic Media, How to Tickle Yourself was created and is hosted by Duff McDonald and Matt McButter, with original theme music by the legendary Paul Reddick and Kyle Ferguson of the Sidemen with Steve Marriner on bass and drums, and in the mixing room.
This week Matt and Duff sit down with author and consciousness explorer Jeff Warren. Warren, the co-author of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics, provides some clarity on the act of meditation itself and outlines the skills one would use to explore the inner workings of their consciousness.
