Healing after Cult Abuse and Toxic Faith Experiences

Healing Oneself after Cult Abuse and Toxic Faith Experiences


There are four levels to fully healing from a bad cult experience. Those levels are:

  1. personal physical and psychological healing,
  2. financial healing (possibly through litigation,)
  3. spiritual healing (if your cult was a religious cult) and,
  4. social healing (possibly though litigation, helping other cult victims, education about and media exposure of the wrongdoer.)

The more one looks at their healing process as embracing all four levels the more likely and the faster one will heal and move on with their life in a healed, transformed and even stronger because of the experience way. The sections below address most of these areas.

Bounded Choice: True Believers and Charismatic Cults

Bounded Choice: True Believers and Charismatic Cults
by Janja Lalich 
Click to Purchase or see further Reviews
"An impressive and even revolutionary look at cultic groups. Lalich challenges fundamental assumptions on all sides of the debate about cults. She spent years as a member of the Democratic Workers Party and provides her readers with a revealing insider's view. To this, the author adds a much-needed comparative focus with her treatment of the Heaven's Gate suicides. The result is a theoretical break through in the study of high commitment groups. Lalich's theory of 'bounded choice' is likely to reshape scholarly thinking for years to come about the dynamics of cult involvement and how and why people may act against their own self-interest in pursuit of higher causes." - Click here to Continue Reading

by David Johnson, Jeff VanVonderen
Click to Purchase or see further Reviews
"Churches are meant to be safe places where spiritual leaders help and equip the members for the work of service. There are some churches, however, where leaders use their spiritual authority to control and dominate others, attempting to meet their own needs for importance, power, intimacy or spiritual gratification. Through the subtle use of the right "spiritual" words, church members are manipulated or shamed into certain behaviors or performance that ensnares in legalism, guilt and begrudging service." - Click here to Continue Reading
