This week’s Patreon Preview features excerpts from bonus episodes #23 where Candice & Tracy deconstruct the psychological coping mechanism known as dissociation.

DD #23 touches upon:

  • Dissociation – what is it and how does it relate to cult dynamics?
  • Altered states. Hovering, meditation, & mindfulness, oh my!
  • Is it really a good idea to be 'present' all the damn time?
  • Candice shares how she thinks a lifetime dissociation has impacted her memory long-term?
  • Tracy shares her own journey with dissociation, then poses a question: Is it possible to dissociate within, via sensation?
  • Expert input helps us to understand submissive states and how/why 'derealization' is normalized in wellness spaces.
  • Does dissociation play a role in cognitive dissonance?
