I really appreciate your post. And I love the work of Barbara Holmes. I think you’re right about mystical experiences, though – they can be used by narcissistic leaders for abusive purposes as proof of their authority. Classically there was a means of testing these experiences but sometimes this hierarchical and patriarchal structure silenced women. I don’t know the answer but you raise a good question.
