#007: Fallen Leaders with Geha Gonthier Waking Up Human with Mandy Trapp

    • Spirituality

Some may call it a cult, while others a place of personal freedom and divine cooperation, but who is responsible when things fall apart...particularly at the hands of those in charge?

During this provocative conversation with Geha Gonthier, we discuss her time spent inside the infamous Rajneeshpuram in Oregon with spiritual Guru, Osho, as well as her decision to move to Edmonton, Canada after meeting another community leader by the name of John de Ruiter. Both leaders have fallen under legal charges pressed against them by fellow community members as well as through (in Osho's case), state accusations for some almost unthinkable crimes.  

It would seem that these leaders are among a growing number of power-hungry abusers, working in the shadows, who's actions are now being thrust into the light, and blinding them as they stumble and fall from their pedestals.  And for many who walk a spiritual path, it is absolutely devastating, causing a whiplash effect while they turn their backs on the teachings and the communities that supported them through their growth, development, and healing, leaving them saddened, lost, and even angry.

Where do we go from here? Geha helps us to answer this question for ourselves as we digest our own disappointment in those who we considered our loving leaders, from our parents, to our teachers, and to those who we've admired who's lives took a sharp and shocking turn.
