Recovery from a cult experience is possible.
It may not feel like it right now; you may be confused, lonely, angry, frightened, financially broke, spiritually broken, sad, lost… Or, most likely, all of the above.
I’m here to tell you that’s ok. What you’re feeling is normal and natural and you will get through it.
Cult recovery is a long journey, and it can be lonely, but you don’t have to walk that road all by yourself.
I’m Alexandra Amor, author of the award-winning memoir Cult, A Love Story, which is about my 10-year experience in a cult in Vancouver, Canada, and the recovery from that experience. I wrote the book, and used my experience, as a way to help others who are walking the same path. I wanted to say, “I know what you’re going through. I promise you it will get better and you will feel whole again one day.”
Basically, I wrote the book I wanted to read when I was beginning my journey of cult recovery.
Many thanks, Alexandra, for your efforts in writing and publishing your book, establishing this informative web site, and for freely giving your time and counsel in helping myself and my family understand and cope with the loss of a loved one, to an uncontrolled, self indulgent, cult leader. Your efforts have raised awareness and you have become a valuable resource for those affected. Thank you.
So…in keeping with the theme of paying it forward, you’ll find my favorite cult recovery resources here.
You can download your free copy of my ebook, Self-Coaching for Cult Survivors, on this page.
I also blog sometimes about cult recovery, cult information, grief and loss, and writing our cult stories.
And you can read more about me here, if you wish.
