Morningland Community Update Dec 2022 - 50 Years a Cult

Morningland Community Update Dec 2022 - 50 Years a Cult
During Nov. and Dec. I held Live Reddit Talk events, and this is one of the last few to be published. Morningland Church, (aka Morningland Community) is spamming and rebranding to stay alive. Now that my mother and I have began publicly speaking out via this podcast and other podcast interviews, we have started slowly getting the word out that Morningland is a cult which has lasted 50 years. The leaders who founded the church are a couple from the 70's who abandoned their own kids to run this scam of a religious cult.They are deceased, the female buried under the building at 2600 E. 7th St., Long Beach, CA. Healing and trafficking go together great. Here, I am doing a sweeping read of the sites people have taken to, to speak out about bad experiences in this cult. Three of the trained by the OG leaders are running this place. There is much to be concerned about. Hear ex members and visitor testimonial I collect on the web, and an update of 3rd party listings trying to claim they are food outreach to the community, they are a gym teaching yoga, they are a safe place for kids and family. I highly disagree. Who am I? Just a person who's family was ripped apart forever by this cult. My family barely survived. I am speaking out even louder this year as we enter their 50 year anniversary. They are Gopy Saravati (directly trained by Donato and Sri Donato aka Patricia and Dan Spearato), Gopi Chokru (Mary- directly trained by Sri Donato), Kamazi X5 aka the Lama (directly trained by Sri Donato), and others.Here I mention where they have changed their no online presence policy, and how they still cannot supress previous members from telling the public what this place is really about: it's a cult.

Frankie Files Podcast ~ Ep. 39 ~ Sari Crawford on Synanon [#BackToSchool]
It's 4th Tuesday and time to talk about adult children of cults. Synanon is our focus, our special guest is Sari Crawford host of the new podcast The Sunshine Place about Synanon a revolutionary rehab cult from 50's to 90's in USA. 0ne of the executive producers of that show is Robert Downey Jr. The interview starts with Sari who's parents were decades in Synanon, and eclipses with her mother joining the talk. It's audio gold, as Sari's mom Sylvia takes us through her first time playing "The Game" and Sari talks about her dad's role as one of the early board members of Synanon. See See for more on this show.Once called “the miracle on the beach,” Synanon began in the 1960s as an experimental rehab facility in Santa Monica, California with a radical claim: It could cure heroin addiction. Before long, it would make an even bolder claim: It could cure any of your problems. All you had to do was move in. What started in a house on the beach, soon spread to compounds across the country. The man who made the miracle happen, Charles E. Dederich, aka “Chuck,” would be the one to destroy it all, along with the lives of many of his followers and millions of dollars in assets. The Sunshine Place tells the mind-blowing, true-story of Synanon - one of America’s most cutting edge social experiments, turned into one of its most dangerous and violent cults - as it’s never been told before: by the people who lived it. Executive Produced by Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, and Emily Barclay Ford for Team Downey and C13Originals, together with Josh McLaughlin for Wink Pictures and written, produced, and directed by Peabody-nominated C13Originals, a Cadence13 Studio.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
