82. Sarah Edmondson Set the NXIVM Cult on Fire
Do you think you could never be indoctrinated into a cult? Sarah Edmondson wants you to think again. Sarah spent 12 years in the NXIVM cult, where otherwise bright, well-meaning women were being coerced, abused and turned into sex slaves by the now convicted felon, Keith Raniere. In this episode, Sarah shares how her own intuition was slowly dismantled by the cult, and how you can spot the red flags of any type of abusive power before it’s too late.
In this episode:
- Sarah's life before NXIVM.
- The core promises of the cult.
- Rules and rituals of the community.
- Making the decision to leave and meet with the DEA.
- The process of healing and deprogramming.
- Where Sarah’s life is today and her hope moving forward.
