I'd like to flag up the New Age teacher Teal Swan as exercising a dangerous level of influence and control over the behavior and actions her followers, whom she calls 'Tealers', to a degree that could reasonably (I believe) be termed cult-like.
The most serious aspect of this control is a 'suicide challenge' which she poses to private clients, workshop attendees and via a number of online youtube videos and interviews.
A recent youtube video has compiled clips of the 'suicide challenge' being deployed and discussed, along with other aspects of her treatment of followers, methods, rhetoric and behaviors - all of which I believe point to serious matters of concern.
The video at present, can be viewed here - [www.youtube.com
There are numerous other resources online that flesh out this information, which I can list in a separate post. If you are a follower of Teal Swan, or have a partner, friend, or relative that is, please consider and test what is being said against the evidence provided for safeguarding the health and well-being of those involved.
