It is my pleasure to introduce you to my guest, Frank Lyford. Frank spent 18 years in the Heaven's Gate cult, following the teachings of Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles. Frank saw red flags along the way, but it took nearly two decades for these warnings to become loud enough for him to know if was time to go. And once he knew, we left. What happens after is a long journey of reorienting and healing from that experience.
Frank has done extensive recovery work to help get to a place of self-love and acceptance. He now coaches others to help them find this intuition and ability within themselves. Frank is also featured in the People Investigates Cults documentary, Episode 3 Heaven's Gate.
Other sources I read while researching and to help write the intro: RollingStone Magazine, The New York Times, and Wikipedia.
