The Fullest Volume 8: Cults
One thing most everyone can agree on is the fact that we, like our ancestors before us, survive by gathering and living in community. We have shared everything with each other, divided tasks, and connected on an emotional and spiritual level — long before language even existed.
Looking back on the rise of cults in recent decades, we are fascinated with the way each scenario played out. We ask ourselves how anyone could give away that much power to any one individual or organization? We wonder where they drew the line… or if they ever did?
In this issue we dissect the cult psyche, examine what a cult is, explore how, exactly, an individual may find themselves within a cult, and look closer at ourselves to see if we are, in fact, engaging in cult-like activities and groups (wellness bubbles included).
Reading through these articles reminds us to stay open to new possibilities and continue searching for the beauty that is connecting as a community. We learn to practice healthy boundaries and check in with the rest of the world. Today it is easier than ever to get stuck in our ways, but it’s so much more rewarding to try to understand people who may not share the same perspective and belief system.
Join us as we take this ride, schooling ourselves through some of the most infamous cults of our time.
