This episode contains material that may be sensitive for some listeners. Listener discretion is advised. What would you do if you found out that a cause you had devoted a decade of your life to wasn't what you thought it was? What if you found yourself embroiled in a sinister cult that bound itself to your life? I'm joined by Sarah Edmondson (subject of the new HBO series The Vow) and tonight, we travel through her experience with the NXIVM cult. It’s a powerful episode that discusses how Sarah was manipulated and bound into a sex cult by sociopath Keith Raniere and his followers. We discuss the scars that were left in Sarah, literally from being branded and the emotional scars that she has begun to heal in her life. Strong and resilient, Sarah was the whistleblower who help put Keith Raniere under investigation, and ultimately, a prison cell currently serving 120 years. See how Sarah continues to find the sparks in herself and helps others to recognize and leave cult groups. All this and more, this week on The Spark with Stephanie James. Check out Sarah's book Scarred: The True Story of How I Escaped NXIVM, the Cult That Bound My Life, available now on Audible.
