Virginia Thomas Lifespring
In the 1980s, while a congressional aide, Thomas took training with the self-awareness program Lifespring. In 1987, she related to The Washington Post that, during her training several years earlier, she had been “confused and troubled” by lessons such as one where trainees were told to strip to bikinis and bathing suits and “made fun of fat people’s bodies and teased one another with sexual questions”.
After realizing that membership in her Lifespring group was splitting her from her family, friends, and co-workers, she started what was verified to be a difficult and months-long process of breaking away. At one point, she hid in another part of the U.S. to avoid a constant barrage of high-pressure phone calls from Lifespring members, who felt they had a duty to keep her in the organization.
Thomas came to believe that Lifespring was a cult. After leaving the group in 1985, she sought counseling and joined the Cult Awareness Network. She became a pundit of controversial religious groups, speaking on panels and organizing anti-cult workshops for congressional staffers in 1986 and 1988. In a 1991 interview, Thomas remarked, “I was once in a group that used mind control techniques”, and she called its members “pretty scary people”.
