Avatar – Scientology’s Wicked Offspring 



“Ariela Sarai, a 21-year-survivor of Avatar, discusses with Chris Shelton on Sensibly Speaking her experiences being recruited into and working for this destructive cult which has so many similarities to L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology that Avatar has been called “Scientology Lite.” I think you’ll see from Ariela’s experiences that there was nothing “lite” about the abuses she endured for years trying to “save the world” before she just recently escaped and is now exposing this cult for what it is”.

[Apologises for just posting this interview. I have taken time off sick and am just now catching up with posts, etc. Thanks for understanding, Amanda]

Is Avatar a Good Cult | YouTube Video

In this video I debunk the claim: Avatar is a Good Cult! I outline what a cult looks like, how Avatar slots into this, the ingredients for a nucleus of a destructive cult and how Avatar harms and exploits, in some circumstances, at an extreme level.

Although long, I feel this video is imperative to not only debunk whether Avatar is a good cult, but again, to bring to light the abuses and exploitation (especially with regards to the Avatar Angels found within the deeper inner workings and some of the very abusive practices AIs. QMs and Trainers are subjected to).
