In this episode, we ask Scott, a former monk of 14 years with Self-Realization Fellowship Monastic Order, how he deconverted from Catholicism to join an Eastern-Mystical religion. He discusses with us his daily metaphysical practices as a monk, his struggles with celibacy and ashram politics, and eventual escape out to become atheist.
