Craig Coggle is a qualified meditation teacher and author of the books Meditation for Beginners and Meditation Power. He has written three manifestos and built a publishing company Tools for the Muso specialising in music manuscript books. His writing has been featured in Tiny Buddha, Change This and Pick The Brain.
Craig started playing drums at the age of 12 and went on to become a professional drummer and signed artist recording and performing with psychedelic shoe-gazers Sun Dial and hard rock pioneers Skyscraper. Their ‘Shooters’ second album is about to be re-released.
After a relationship breakup in 2000 Craig began scouring the libraries of self-help and found himself studying and practicing awareness meditation. He found that the often rebellious attitudes of teachers such as Osho, Alan Watts, Noah Levine and Brad Warner appealed to his rock n roll philosophy. He created the guru persona 21st Century Monk and began blogging and creating his first meditation e-course.
Now practicing regularly he continued studying and began a series of retreats over the next few years. Soon after writing and publishing his two books he began leading workshops and teaching meditation 1-2-1 through the online platform Savvy.
An extremely grateful husband and dad, he lives in London with his wife and two sons.
