April 1, 2022

Spiritual materialism happens when the ego hijacks our spiritual practice and uses it to fulfill its hopes, dreams, expectations, desires, etc. 

This episode is an overview of what spiritual materialism is, what it's not, how it manifests in our meditation practice, and the ways in which the new-age industry reinforces spiritual materialism to sell us capitalism. 

I also offer 3 practical tips in moving out of materialism.
