I Was Best Friends with the Messiah's Children w/ Lisa Kohn, ex-Moonies - S3E6
Today Rachel speaks with Lisa Kohn, business cons…
Today Rachel speaks with Lisa Kohn, business consultant and author of "To The Moon And Back", that details her childhood in the Unification Church. Her mother had spent years looking for a spiritual home for the family. One day, she "figured it all out" and joined the Moonies. The church began to consume the family's life, and her mom seemed spiritually content. But her hard-partying, drug addicted Dad didn't get involved. How did Lisa feel growing up in a cult? And would she and her Mom ever leave or would they be lost to the Moonies forever? Tune in for a great story on growing up in a controlling environment, perfecting "that Moonie smile", developing your own point of view, and breaking free.
Stay tuned, Before You Go: Rachel shares the importance of collecting a team of resources to help you in your life, and also how people sometimes choose to conform to beliefs in order to belong.
