  • My neighbor's daughter was into Harry Krishna( not the right spelling )but she was completely bwashed and acted so out there. She would always ask people to go to their meetings. SHe cut her hair really short and gave away her clothes, jewelry and any belongings. She finally got out when she got pregnant.

  • We had people from the Zendik farms come and talk to us in college once. They had a question period and when we were asking questions they started getting really defensive and not going into things. It was only afterwards, when we were finding crazy stuff (accounts from people who had gotten out and stuff ) on the web about them and passing it around (we were sort of an "honors community" within the college) did the guy in charge of our community (we all lived in a special dorm, etc, etc) figure it out and apologize (he had no idea they were so cultish when he set it up).

  • It wasn't really an "organized" cult, but I used to be into the New Age movement. My cousin also almost joined Scientology and the working group that they have..I forget what it's called.

  • Just christians and Jehovah's witnesses. Oh, and once at a metaphysical fair I met a scientologist (and got out of there as fast as I could!!!)
