Episode Description

“Counsel the victim, help one person. Counsel the guru-gone-bad, help hundreds -- if not thousands," says Chavah Aima, guru interventionist. Her perspective is more relevant than ever after the 2009 deaths and injuries in an Arizona sweat lodge ceremony raised new questions about trust in spiritual leaders. A psychotherapist formerly specializing in trauma treatment and addiction recovery, Chavah spent 14 years studying a wide variety of Eastern and Western esoteric traditions. Her upcoming book In the Shadow of the Guru: Spiritual Empowerment and the Dark Side is based on her years in India studying and getting to know many gurus. The book reveals techniques used by Eastern and Western gurus to recruit and keep followers. On this show we will be learning, not only how to tell a true leader from a false guru, but some of the warning signs that your guru may have “gone bad,” and how to recover your personal power after surrendering it to a false guru. Don’t miss this one!
