Welcome back to The Alchemical Mind. This episode focuses on understanding ego death, and more importantly, ego backlash.  What are these two concepts, how are they related, and how do they relate to mystical experience? I am going to dive deep into this topic, intermingled with a couple of fascinating comments that sparked the idea for this episode. We will talk about how these concepts are expressed in different mystical traditions, wrap it all around the fabulous Ten Ox Herding Pictures story from the Zen Buddhists, and more.
