Tahlia shares some of the insights and knowledge she gained during her role as one of the facilitators of the group, the challenges she and others faced, and the realisations she came to in light of her discoveries. The book is a personal record of psychological processing, showing the consequences of spiritual abuse for an ordinary member of an abusive, high-demand religious group.
Fallout is a cautionary tale for students and potential students of any guru-centred spiritual group. For Buddhist teachers, it not only exposes the destructive results of guru abuse but also provides valuable insight into areas of the teachings which can easily be misunderstood and misused and so need to be carefully taught and applied.
