I was in a matriarchal sex cult for two years in my early 20’s. The journey turned out to be one of the most meaningful experiences of my life, teaching me a foundational knowledge of the psyche that I couldn’t have gotten in any normal school.

This is Part 1 of what I think will be two parts. I speak about my first year in the cult, my background that led me to seek this adventure, and some notes on cult psychology and how group realities are formed.

To participate in Part 2 live, join my facebook group: http://forum.masculineunderground.com

Part 2 will cover when “The Hero becomes the Villain”; when I tried to break away by starting my own ‘mini-cult’. More ethical dilemmas, and breakdowns of cult psychology and ‘practical mysticism’.
