Description

«ME UNÍ A NXIVM PARA SER PARTE DE UN MOVIMIENTO POSITIVO EN EL MUNDO, PARA HACER EL BIEN […] ME SIENTO COMO UN SOLDADO QUE REGRESA DE LA GUERRA DESPUÉS DE HABER MATADO NIÑOS POR PETRÓLEO». SARAH EDMONDSON. A los ojos de todos, NXIVM era una empresa innovadora sobre desarrollo personal que superaba los estándares: su líder Keith Raniere recibió del dalái lama, en un gran evento, una khata blanca que significa bendición y aprobación; Emilio Salinas (hijo del expresidente) dirigía la filial en México; actrices y actores de Hollywood —así como otros personajes mexicanos— se unían al grupo; sus miembros se mostraban empoderados y listos para prosperar… La verdad era muy distinta, existía un «amo» y «esclavas», mujeres marcadas con las iniciales KR, extorsionadas, grabadas desnudas, con sus datos personales y financieros retenidos, ya sin vínculos con el mundo exterior y que temían por su vida. NXIVM era una secta sexual millonaria: un negocio de esclavitud moderna. Sarah Edmondson, actriz y autora de este testimonio, se unió a lo que creyó era una empresa de coaching; tras 12 años de trabajar en ella y entender la terrible realidad, denunció los hechos: Raniere fue declarado culpable de crimen organizado, conspiración, fraude, trabajo forzado, tráfico sexual y posesión de pornografía infantil en una corte estadounidense; su condena se sigue discutiendo. ESTA ES LA HISTORIA DE LA SECTA SEXUAL MÁS IMPACTANTE DE LA ACTUALIDAD.

The shocking and subversive memoir of a 12-year-NXIVM-member-turned-whistleblower, and her inspiring true story of abuse, escape, and redemption. "Master, would you brand me? It would be an honor." Scarred follows actress Sarah Edmondson's account of her recruitment into the NXIVM cult founded by Keith Raniere and the 12 years she spent within the organization, during which she enrolled over 2,000 members. This book also chronicles her breaking point and her harrowing fight to get out, help others, and heal. Sarah Edmondson is a Canadian actress and playwright who has starred in the CBS series Salvation and more than 12 films for the Hallmark Channel and Lifetime. Complete with personal photographs, this tell-all follows Sarah from the moment she takes her first NXIVM seminar, to the invitation she accepts from her best friend, Lauren Salzman, into DOS a "secret sisterhood" within the cult to her journey toward becoming a key witness in the federal case against its founders. Readers will learn how cults like NXIVM get started, why people get involved (and stay), and the importance of whistleblowers who bring light to illegal and unethical practices. Scarred isn't just about NXIVM. It is also a story about abuses of power, the role female friendships play in cults, and how sometimes the search to be "better" can override everything else. In the constant search for self-improvement, how much do you trust the message and messenger? A thrilling read for fans of true crime and cults, as well as listeners of podcasts like My Favorite Murder and Up and Vanished Evokes questions about friendship, ethics, good and evil, making it a perfect selection for book clubs. Great for fans of Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini, Escape by Carolyn Jessop, Beyond Belief by Jenna Miscavige Hill, and Bad Blood by John Carreyrou
