The Conscious Resistance: Reflections on Anarchy and Spirituality

By Derrick Broze & John Vibes

Released April 12, 2015


This book is for those who are interested in meditation, consciousness, indigenous teachings, and spirituality. This book is also for those who understand the philosophy of freedom, Anarchy, and self-governance. We hope to bridge the gaps between these two worlds in an effort to help humanity understand freedom in a way that goes beyond the physical world. We also want to help those who are already spiritually inclined to consider what freedom means from a philosophical perspective.

The book will feature discussions on the intersection of Anarchy and Shamanism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Finally, we will take a look at historical examples of peoples living in stateless communities and developing their own sense of philosophy that was intrinsically anti-state.

Through a series of essays we will lay out the case for a synthesis of Spiritual teachings and Anarchist philosophy as an empowered path towards a more free, conscious world. We will first outline what exactly the “The Conscious Resistance” is, and then explain the concept of Explorative Agnosticism. We will also examine the topics of animal consciousness and rights, collectivism vs individuality, conscious healing, Panarchy, meditation, Psychedelics, Consciousness, Agorism, Feminism, Gender Roles and much more.
