Amma, Busted

I cannot wait to read this new memoir by Gail Tredwell, Holy Hell. It recounts her 20 years as Amma's personal assistant -- hurray for all those who destroy these ridiculous guru myths.

Jad Adams is bringing out a new, well researched biography of Gandhi, Naked Truth. In it he describes Gandhi's warped sexuality, which included forcing teenage girls to sleep naked with him. To anyone familiar with Muktananda's habits, it rings many bells. Here's a link to an article by Jad Adams, detailing some of what he discovered.

Great Discussion on Yoga & Power

"If a cult-of-personality is dependent upon widespread propaganda and deception, then, the problem with yoga is not just the teachers that fall susceptible to the lure of power. Rather, the problem is that people believe the lie that yoga is somehow categorically different than all other systems. The reason people believe this lie is because the charismatic leaders discourage critical thinking in favor of submission and acceptance, which is reinforced by the benefits that come from being in the good graces and high favor of the leader. Further, because the followers have raised the leaders to such a high position, thoughtlessness now permeates a community that could be vibrantly creative, a community that could significantly contribute to the world in general." ~ Jennifer Richard

NEW MEMOIR on its way!

Dear Friends,

I have written a second memoir, THE IMPOSTERS. It covers the seven or so years leading up to The Guru Looked Good, ending just six months before The Guru begins. It's another cult-like story, though on a very different scale. It's a "domestic cult" -- with only a handful of members, one of whom is a child. It takes place in Manhattan, Athens, Greece and London during the eighties. THE IMPOSTERS is in production now and I hope to have it ready for reading by March.
