Book Description

CULT reads like a novel, yet is the testament of authentic cult experience by someone in the inner-circle of "The Context." Its purpose is to give a true taste of what it is to be in a cult so that the reader gains the inside story of cult life, along with inoculation against cult seductions. The story involves five Americans --well-educated, innocent, sensitive seekers--who move to Victoria, BC, to be close to a charismatic man professing to hold the secrets of fully realized humanity. Their ride depicts the devastating, beautiful, juicy, hyperbolic dead-end that characterizes all cults--for they all use the same tactics of seduction, initiation, endearment and purification. CULT offers an education unlike any other, a vital knowledge in our strange yet promising times.
