Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


Diagnosing My Own Thoughts w/ Dr. Michelle Haslam, ex-New Kadampa Tradition - S5E14pt1

Dr. Michelle Haslam is a clinical psychologist who became involved with The New Kadampa Tradition in 2016 while living in the Nagarjuna Kadampa Meditation Centre in Northamptonshire, England.

Michelle experienced spiritual abuse within the group and despite her training as a psychologist, came to believe that she should be destroying her ego, instead of practicing self-care and self-compassion. Now she produces materials that explain the process of indoctrination within Buddhist cultic groups. Michelle has since been a target of harassment via her workplace and character assassination from senior members of the group.

Stay tuned, Before You Go: Reserving information for those who pay can be like holding someone spiritually hostage. Find out how and why this can be a red flag for a manipulative group setting.
