Andrew Cohen is one of the most controversial spiritual teachers of the last 30 years. In 2013 his organization EnlightenNext collapsed amidst claims of abuse and the shocking revelation it had been a cult.
This groundbreaking 6-part series features interviews with Andrew Cohen, former students including William Yenner (author of American Guru) and Marlowe Sand (author of Paradise and Promises), and commentary from experts Dr. Roger Walsh, Tami Simon, Steve McIntosh and Doshin Michael Nelson.
How I Created a Cult investigates three decades of abuse, the danger of unchecked power in the hands of a charismatic leader, how this co-existed alongside stories of genuine spiritual awakening and transformation, and ultimately what happens when people risk it all in the name of spiritual awakening.
EPISODE 6 ANNOUNCEMENT Please note that The final episode, Episode 6 will be released on Sunday 4th December, a week later than originally planned. Although we appreciate this may be disappointing for those of you expecting it this Sunday, we feel it is crucial to take the time we need for this episode to be as strong as it can be, which is also not helped with losing several days to Thanksgiving. We hope you understand and we are very excited to share the season finale with you next week. Thank you.
There are only two possibilities: you’re going to have a breakthrough or breakdown. I was going to create a spiritual revolution.
