So here’s what we know so far - Women are manipulated over time into changing their first names. - They are taken overseas for cult like conferences on a regular basis. - All new members are instructed and manipulated into cutting all ties with their family members. - Guilt, manipulation and fear run rampant within the community. Tight deadlines. 24/7 work. Limited if any compensation. - T

A famous yoga guru, Bikram Choudhury, founded of "Hot Yoga" which does yoga in 100F rooms and has a multi-millionare buisness spanning 3 continents has been using his buisness to lure women into human trafficing networks that rape and sexually exploit women. My heart goes out to these women. It takes alot of courage to go up against someone weathy and powerful as him and his inner c

I posted elsewhere that I think that RI should have a section for discussing alternative medicine as it is rather cultic in nature and a real public hazard. I admit some alternative medicines do work for some things...but much harm is done because of them and there is a whole sub-culture that is built around fear of conventional and scientifically tested medicine and people get hurt and die from

Sorry to respond so late...this is such a slow moving forum sometimes that its safe not to check all that often. Anyway, Things have not improved with my brother all that much...you are so right, he is addicted to god. That explains it better than anything I have yet seen. He has addictive qualities as alcoholism runs deep on his father's side...so this explains alot really. Mom has give

Thats good advice to see what he is lacking. The biggest thing he keep saying is that god blesses those who worship him with all thier heart's desires. I have yet to see this happen...in fact, quite the contrary...he has less freetime which he always complains about, and he has no notable change in income which really bothers him. Mom and I keep trying to push him to take the technical schoo

I have known some people into alternative medicine and it just seems very cult like. It doesnt matter how useless it is, they swear by it. I even know a couple who took their infant with spinal bifida to a chiropractor!! The same guy would not let his wife get eye glasses for vision problems but insisted she do eye exersizes. People die and many people are harmed from alterntive medicine. Ech

Is it common for those impacted by cults whether dirrectly or loved ones close to the one's affected by cults to be re-victimized again?

Sounds like stalking to me. Sometimes cult groups will stalk and harrass people who have left. It is best to hire a private dective if you want to catch them and take them to court. Police are rather useless in stalking situations.

I also have a history of being conned into cults, and a friend introduced me to the LOA and all this stuff. I was at first appualled that he would blame the crazy crap in my life on my negitive thinking...then I decided to have an open mind and look into this. I watched the Secret on Netflix and experienced an emotional high and had this amazing emotional experience where I believed that there ar

Gloria, Thank you for that info, I will see if I can get that book on amazon. Ya, my friend has been into this stuff for a long time, so I dont know how to break it to him. He sees the world as purposeful and as a result of our thoughts and beliefs, but I tried this for about 3 days, then had a massive autistic meltdown from stuffing all my "negitive" thoughts. I have autism, just

I have a good friend who is hardcore about this "Law of attraction" stuff and while he is a caring and loving person...he blames me for my troubles saying that "my negitivity attracted these things to me" I checked into this law of attraction stuff and I smell a collosial load

Madision, Hi, I was in a cult for a few years but have seen the damage that being born into one causes as one of my high school friends was born into one (small cults are rather common in Georgia). When I was trying to heal, I also encountered the same problem with therapists being clueless about the damage that the cult has done. Well what I did was journal. I journaled 3-4 pages a day and j

I deprogrammed myself for the most part It was a slow awakening. My mother rescued me from a dangerous campus cult in which I was suicidal at the time and refused to let me go back to college there. It was about 2 years afterwards that I searched info about cults cuz mom kept calling it a cult, yet I didnt believe her. Well I found rick ross's warning signs of a dangerous group/leader an

A friend told me about this as he was looking into going to Savannah College of Art and design. He got wind through an art forum of a cult that operated there and then after some digging found this information from a former member of that cult. This is what he found: Frank Spencer of Kedge forward which is a human potential firm with a creative twist is the same Frank Spencer of Banner of t

ya I watched that too...very interesting! They also said that Hitler and 3 others made a pact in the occult and Hitler broke the pact when he sent 2 of the men to be killed. According to the History Channel, after the pact was broken, he began to really lose the war and 2 months later, he committed suicide. WWII interests me and horrifies me that average people are capable of such evil in a m

I am somewhat experienced in cults because I am a former member of a campus cult and did alot of online research into the structure of cults and mind control techniques after my mom rescued me. Do you think it would be a good idea for me to visit his church a few times to find out more. My brother is reluctant to talk much about it, which also concerns me. Knotty

I was in a cult similar to DLC and these disciple churches really stress tithing or the member will be cursed by God finacially. I took out student loans to pay my tithes and 10 years later, I am still paying back those loans. I am sorry that some DLC members have blamed your nephew for his situation, that is typical, blame the victim of the church to keep the church blameless. I have a f

My brother recently joined The Way which is a non denominational church which concerns me. Upon joining, he has become extreemely religious overnight and in all of his spare time he is either in church, with his church buddies, or listening to christian music. He talked to me briefly about one of his bible study lessons which was to read Deuteronomy where God is threatning to curse Israel to livi
