35: CONSCIOUS DEVELOPMENT: Terri Hoffman and the cult you’ve never heard of

This week, Eavesdroppin’ host Michelle wraps up the cult double whammy with a mini-dive into a cult you’ve most likely never heard of… Terri Hoffman’s Conscious Development. In the early 1970s in Dallas, Texas, Terri Hoffman began giving free classes on spirituality and meditation. By the late 1970s, her cult was in full swing with teachings on astral travel and reincarnation proving popular. But when her teachings began to include things like bloodletting and black lords, things went dark and by the early 1990s, it seems 11 of Terri’s followers had died or disappeared under strange circumstances…. Want to know more about this strange cult and hear a breakdown of the 11 dead and disappeared? You’ll have to listen! So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join the duo for some cult talk plus extra chit chat on Michelle’s arse, Quora questions and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast. And remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
