The Mother Complex is an early obstacle in the individuation of masculine consciousness. It affects one’s ability to relate to the Feminine aspect of the psyche in all its forms: Women (in dating), your own emotions and creativity, and your social environment.

This episode covers it on 3 layers:

  1. How to overcome the Dark Feminine’s challenge to your individuation (The internal Hero’s Journey)
  2. How it maps to anthropological evolution, from our neolithic ancestors to modern Homo Sapiens
  3. Ruwan’s personal experience of confronting the Dark Feminine when he was in the Matriarchal cult.
  • How it relates to men’s mental health, anxieties, violence, and the male suicide epidemic.
  • How individual consciousness maps to sociological consciousness (Neumann)
  • Unpacking weird stories like the Oedipus Complex, and Myth of Isis/Osirus/Horus
  • Son of Swords archetype and the development of ego within the Hero’s Journey (Campbell)
  • Patriarchal vs. Matriarchal culture and effect on the psyche
  • Origins of the Fear of Women
  • Genesis and our inevitable “fall from grace” (Advent of agriculture)
  • The Oral-Bio Survival Circuit (Robert Anton Wilson)
  • Simple practical actions to confront your own Mother Complexes
