I recently sat down with Henna Maria to discuss transformation, tyranny, and the ways in which our society has been entrained to suppress ourselves and our feeling states in order to secure safety, approval, and connection.

In a culture that dismisses emotional intelligence and encourages divesting of self-trust, it makes sense that the average citizen would parentify—and blindly obey—authorities deemed to know better than they do.

If we lose sight of the fact that those of us on a path of reclamation, too, were once hoodwinked by mainstream media, government, and the orthodoxy of science, we further abandon ourselves and engage in a war with the self that never ends.

In this in-depth interview, I share the details of my own path to liberation, the role of fear and childlike psychology involved in obedience with abusive authorities, and the importance of identifying the ways in which we are participating in abuse and tyranny in order to secure liberation and reclaim our power.
