Ari Honarvar is a fascinating and brave person with an incredible story. She is an award-winning writer, speaker, and artist dedicated to building bridges between the arts, social justice, and well-being. She is also a strong and vocal voice for women being oppressed in theologically authoritarian countries - especially in her home country of Iran.
In this episode, we dig into authoritarian theology and both answer these three important questions:
Why do institutions (i.e. government, education, religion) fear the mystical so much?
Why is the feminine often a target of authoritarian theologies?
What is the best weapon against authoritarian theologies?
