Katie Spiller is one courageous beautiful woman who has escaped an organised religious cult, one she was born into, and through sharing her story and building a safe community, Wild Women Free, she is helping other women transition into the “afterlife” of escaping an organised religious cult.

3. Why people stay or find it hard to leave

4. Addressing judgmental comments about cults

5. How to muster up the courage

6. Signs and tactics of cult leaders

7. How she supports women through the transition of being a member to escaping
