The Geftakys Assembly began in 1970 on the West Coast with a group of young people earnestly following the teaching of George Geftakys. My husband Steve and I were among them. Our family left twenty years later as we began to see the true nature of the group. In my experience, seeing that the Assembly was a cult in how it functioned was the starting point for getting free from the internal tangles and roadblocks. This blog grows out of my reflections on the deep impact of those twenty years. I hope these thoughts will shed some light for others.
