While Andrew was just a little fetus, his mom received a prophetic word that he'd become a minister. He studied at Princeton Seminary and fulfilled the prophecy. However, internally, he remained miserable and anxious. He began to evaluate his belief system and discovered that his Christian beliefs were the problem. He left Christianity in 2015 and now helps others recovering from religious trauma. Together, we discuss "secular spirituality", the "Self", "ego death", "surrendering" to "nature", and so much more, all within a framework of trying to be as responsible as possible with our word use. It's a pretty friggin' nuanced and exciting conversation. If you've been struggling with your internal voice/experience post-religion, this is a good episode for you.

28:56 Intro + Interview
Now that we’ve begun to process our history with toxic religion, we seek to regain autonomy over our minds and bodies from residual narratives, whether cultural or religious; while working towards respecting and empowering the autonomy of others. Together, we seek to rejoin the human race and participate in this chaotic experience of existence Thanks for listening and remember: You are autonomous and so is everyone else.
