Odyssey Study Group cult still going strong after death of charismatic leader Sharon Gans

I want to save lives and the only way I can think of is to tell my story. Thanks to the NY Post for spreading the word with the second article in two weeks. The reporter, Isabel Vincent, is first-rate, and is the first reporter to delve into the background of the leaders. Thank you Isabel. 

French Evangelical Church at 126 W 16th Street

The Sharon Gans cult still meets in secret locations in NYC. has learned of one such place. The cult poses to the church as a "writer's group," so do not blame the Church (up to now).  The Church is located at 126 W 16th Street. If you have been going to evening meetings there, or are invited, run, don't walk. This group is very dangerous.

"Memoir by Sharon Gans’ NYC cult member exposes fight clubs and broken lives"

Journalist Heather Robinson interviewed me a few weeks ago for this article. We spent 90 minutes talking about my book but also about how half the country thinks the other half is in a cult and that half of the country is right. I hope current members come across this article and can free themselves.

A Little Bit Culty Podcast - Part 2

A listener of the podcast reached out to tell me that in 2010 she was recruited by a friend to join an "esoteric group" in NYC, but was spooked by all the secrecy requirements. Luckily she didn't go. I confirmed for her that her friend is in fact a member of the Gans Cult. The whole experience left her uneasy and Im grateful that speaking out has helped her to gain some closure.

The Actress

Sharon created a make-believe world for herself. She believed she was –– I heard her say this –– a character in a "Shakespeare tragedy." In her final performance, Sharon plays King Lear. In her adaptation of the classic, she bequeaths zilch to her two biological children because they "betrayed" her. Instead (as first reported on these pages) she leaves her multimillion dollar estate –– all of it stolen money –– to her looney step-son and other assorted bootlickers.
