Episode 5: Breaking Away from an Oppressive Church with Sophia

In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sophia. We discussed the trauma of separating from a strict church…or cult…and how entheogens helped her get through that. Please enjoy this episode with Sophia.

We discussed:

  1. Tell us a little bit about what brought you to psychedelics…prior “drug” use…religion?
  2. What changed in you after that first journey?
  3. What came next (mushroom trip, thoughts, visions).
  4. Being open, free seemed impossible?
  5. You felt really trapped, essentially, by the strict religion?
  6. How is your life different now, after this transformation?
  7. You’re looking to become a therapist/counsellor, using psilocybin?
  8. Important for you to be a female voice?
  9. After all of this, have you maintained some connections from your church community? Have any of them come out of the so-called closet and shared similar thoughts or even experiences?
  10. What about your parents, your husband, your family, friends…do you talk about this with them? How do they react?
  11. What do you think is the key to having an insightful, life-changing experience with psychedelics?
  12. What other changes have you experienced, aside from the big change? Yoga, demonic movies, nose ring, and more!
  13. Anything else?
