Jo, when I first left the Family I read a book called Oranges and Lemmings (I think that was the title) by a guy who joined the Rajneeshis. It was amazing and was the first inkling I had that I had been in an abusive cult. By reading that book my eyes were opened to what I had been through and the fact struck me that all of these cults have a common theme and modus operandi. The guy was a journo who infiltrated the group but ended up getting sucked in. He eventually left and gave a really great insight into his experience. Has anyone else read this book?
