Meditate and Destroy focuses on Noah Levine, the founding teacher of the Dharma Punx movement and bestselling author of Dharma Punx and Against the Stream. Tattoos, motorcycles and the Buddha are all featured in this take on the convergence of Buddhism and punk culture.

By laying out Noah’s story, this film explores the possibilities of finding new paths and opportunity even in our darkest hours. Noah transforms his life from one defined by violence and addiction to becoming a dedicated community leader and meditation teacher whose style and candor inspires people to explore Buddhist teachings for inner transformation. Meditate and Destroy features an engaging punk rock soundtrack along with interviews with renowed Buddhist teachers Jack Kornfield, Stephen Levine, and Ajahn Amaro.
