THE BURN ZONE with Renee Linnell

About the Book:

After seven years of faithfully following her spiritual teacher, Renee Linnell realized she was in a Buddhist cult and had been severely brainwashed. She had graduated magna cum laude with a double degree. She had traveled to nearly 50 countries alone before she turned 35. She was a surf model and a professional tango dancer. She had started five different companies and was getting an MBA from NYU. How does someone like her end up brainwashed in a cult?

Renee Linnell's The Burn Zone is an exploration of how we give away our power to others when we feel alone, lost, seeking, or doubtful of our self-worth--and a guide on how we can ultimately emerge from intense trauma stronger than ever. Part inspirational story, part cautionary tale, this is a memoir for spiritual seekers and those who feel lost in a world that makes them feel like they don't belong.

A cult survivor's story, The Burn Zone is filled with inspiration and encouragement for anyone struggling to find a sense of purpose, spiritual fulfillment, or the answers to their problems.
