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


The Reason for the Season w/ Aziza Hasan, Muslim-Jewish coalition - S4E16

How do you give the gift of peace? Aziza Hasan is the Executive Director of a program called NewGround, a Muslim-Jewish partnership for change. Rachel and Aziza converse about reaching beyond tolerance to find mutual empathy and understanding.

Aziza has served on President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and was recognized as a leader by the Executive Service Corps. She is an experienced mediator and talented at transforming interfaith conflicts on a personal level. Imagine a place where Jews and Muslims sleep and pray side by side, are invited to speak their truth, and form connections where there once was a phobia. Those who have taken part in NewGround programs leave with a diversified sense of community and knowledge that can bring peace to their neighborhood.

Watch the "Two Faiths One Prayer" video, a prayer experience that arose from the program. This was a joint project where both groups prayed together in public spaces all across Los Angeles:

Stay tuned, Before You Go: How do we learn to forgive each other after conflict and fear? Rachel shares a story of a xenophobic attack where she witnessed bystanders stand together and become allies.

IndoctriNation is ending its fourth season and starting the New Year by announcing another call-in episode! This show will focus on beginning a new chapter in your life. What motivated you to leave a damaging situation and what has helped you as you follow a new path? You can also ask Rachel any questions you may have that might help you along your journey.
