Posts: 4537 Byron Katie, Tony Parsons, Osho, 'Medina Rajneesh' in Suffolk
Haven't researched Tony Parsons, but that should be looked at very carefully. Don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but please be very careful out there, this "non-duality" material can be very slippery.
It does seem that Tony Parsons was a follower of Osho/Rajneesh and a member of a commune called Medina Rajneesh in Suffolk in the 1980's.
There is no mention of Osho/Rajneesh on his website www.theopensecret.com
There appears to be no biographical information at all on his website.
What does Tony Parsons have to say now about Rajneesh and his methods of creating and controlling the cult that he set up? That is probably the most important question for him to clarify in writing.
Some groups may be hard to define as a "cult", but the Rajneesh group was a classic cult, that did some very dangerous things, and that needs to be addressed factually and openly.

] knew him (Tony Parsons) personally as a fellow commune member from Medina"
] Guest's upbringing as a child of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh 'free love' movement in the Sixties left him anything but spiritually enlightened"
Osho-Rajneesh was an outrageous and extremely dangerous cult leader, The Golden Guru. [www.culteducation.com
