[ # ] Learn about NXIVM on A&E’s Cults and Extreme Belief
May 28th, 2018 under A&E

We have all recently heard a lot about the cult NXIVM, but how much do we really know about it? Tonight at 10p on A&E’s Cults and Extreme Belief, an ex-member tells us all about her experience with them.

Sarah Edmondson was a young actress, who was unsure where her career was going. She heard about NXIVM and joined the group that held personal and professional development seminars. Whatever they were doing seemed to be working on her, so she kept going. In fact, she started recruiting people to be part of the group. Looking back at her recruitment days, she is thinking that she got over 2,000 people to join them.

Even though it cost a lot of money, she did not see anything wrong with it. That was until they recruited her for DOS which was a subdivision for the women of NXIVM. They each paid $15,000 for a 3-day seminar and that is when she was branded. After the 45-minute branding, that she did not want, she realized that the symbol on her crotch was the initials of the two leaders, Keith Raniere and Allison Mack from Smallville.

Why would she do that? They had incriminating evidence of her that they forced her to make. Her husband, who was also in NXIVM, said this was the final straw and they left.

She went to the authorities, as we know, and now both leaders are facing serious jail time for committing acts like this and ones worse than this. Something Edmondson says she did not know anything about at the time.

Now she is reaching out to the people she recruited to apologize to them.

On tonight’s premiere episode of Cults and Extreme Belief we will learn even more about NXIVM. In future episodes, Elizabeth Vargas will talk with other past members from other cults who will describe what their lives were like when they were in one.

If you are like me and love learning about cults, then you are going to be really fascinated with this show that gets the story straight from the source. It is also important for people to watch so that they know what to look out for and they are not recruited by a cult who takes all their money and so much more.
