TNP116 Matthew Remski on Attachment High Demand Communities and Yogas Culture Of Abuse 1

102 minutes

In this episode, I'm thrilled to talk with Matthew Remski about how one finds oneself in a cult, how to get out, and what high demand groups have to do with social justice, climate change and collapse.

Matthew is a writer and cultural critic who published an explosive article in The Walrus called, Yoga's Culture Of Sexual Abuse: Nine Women Tell Their Stories.

Since then, I've followed Matthew and especially appreciated his real-time critique of the unravelling of the Shambala meditation community.
