Book Signing with "The Burn Zone" Author Renee Linnell
After seven years of faithfully following her spiritual teacher, Renee Linnell realized she was in a Buddhist cult and had been severely brainwashed. She had graduated magna cum laude with a double degree. She had traveled to nearly fifty countries alone before she turned thirty-five. She was a surf model and a professional tango dancer. She had started five different companies and was getting an MBA from NYU. How does someone like her end up brainwashed in a cult? Renee Linnell’s The Burn Zone (She Writes Press, 2018) is an exploration of how we give away our power to others when we feel alone, lost, seeking, or doubtful of our self-worth—and a guide on how we can ultimately emerge from intense trauma stronger than ever. Part inspirational story, part cautionary tale, this is a memoir for spiritual seekers and those who feel lost in a world that makes them feel like they don’t belong. Readers will learn to spot the red flags that signal dangerous self-empowerment groups, charismatic leaders, or even toxic friends/partners/lovers; how to embrace the value in being different and the fact that “your difference is your destiny;” how to love your whole self (contradictions, flaws and all); and how to find a profound connection with the Divine and true bliss. “Mind control is no joke…It amazes me that it could happen to me, that it could happen to my friends, that it can happen to anyone if we allow others to tell us who we are.” “We are bombarded with messaging that tells us we are not okay the way we are. It is time for messaging that tells us the opposite: there is room for all of us, with all our diversity, and each one of us is incredibly worthy. By believing in and loving and being true to ourselves, we add our light to the sum of light, and we shift the consciousness of this planet from fear to love. Is there anything else more worthy of our time?” —Renee Linnell, MBA, Entrepreneur and Cult Survivor
