Hello, everyone. My name is Eve. And a walk in the park led me to two years in a cult.
To be completely honest with you, I’ve never felt really loved. My parents were both over-achievers with great careers. But somehow, I was terrible at school.

One of those days, I walked by the park and saw three guys sitting there and meditating by the pond. I was staring at them the whole time, feeling jealous because they seemed so peaceful.

He said, “there’s nothing to worry about,” took my hand, and walked me to the others. “I’m Jeremy,” the guy introduced himself. “It looks like you were searching for us.” I sat down and we started talking about our lives and our struggles.

And he turned them into spirited human beings that wanted to change the world, to protest violence and wars. “He will be incredibly pleased to meet you, Eve,” they said. I mean, that was the weirdest coincidence of all, right? I don’t know what came over me, but it felt right. When I was walking back home from the meeting, I already had a plan in my mind...
