‘A compelling account of what can go wrong in religious groups.’ Barbara Scott Emmett, author.
Fallout is the memoir of one woman’s journey from ignorance of the reports of physical, emotional and sexual abuse by Sogyal Rinpoche, spiritual teacher of the Rigpa Tibetan Buddhist community, to the realisation of the depth of the trauma suffered by survivors, and how certain beliefs and assumptions enables such abuse. It’s also a tribute to the compassion, wisdom, and resilience of members of the What Now? virtual support group, and a cautionary tale for students and potential students of any guru-centred spiritual group.
