Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


Wounds Are A Kind Of Ink. w/ Matthew Remski, ex-Ashtanga yogi - S3E8pt1

Part 1 of a 2 Part interview, Rachel speaks with Matthew Remski. He is a survivor of two Yoga-related cults. Matthew is now the father of two with his partner, an instructor and an author. He would also like to shout out two previous guests, Janja Lalich and Dan Shaw. Matthew shares his ideas about getting over the feelings of resentment, animosity, and shame that can come with leaving a cultic organization.

Stay tuned, Before You Go: How do you pay back for eternal life, or for the cure for everything that ails you? Rachel speaks about how cults and abusers make people feel indebted and beholden. She also offers tips on checking to see if your relationship or organization is treating you as well as you treat them!
