I was born and raised in a cult. My parents were both narcissistic. Yay for me!

The reason why it feels very related, it’s because most (I’d say all) leaders/gurus are narcissists. Think of the cult as a gigantic “family”. They use the same techniques and tactics. It doesn’t truly matter what the belief system is, the belief system is there as a facade.

I’d say a great read is the book Traumatic Narcissism by Dan Shaw. He goes into a lot of detail about gurus and narcissism.

Edit to add Thought Reform by Robert J Lifton and looking into his categories.

So yes. TLDR. There’s a lot of crossover.

One thing that gradually happens in working with a good therapist is that you get to develop and hold on to a point of view that is truly your own. This is something that fundamentally threatens any cult, which can’t allow you to have that POV. You can do this.
