Lilia Tarawa was brought up in the Gloriavale Christian Community on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, where she was constantly surrounded by everyone she loved. But over time, she began to see the dark side of her community, and ultimately realised that she had to get out. In this raw and emotional talk, Lilia shares the reality of life in a cult, and her heart-wrenching journey to break free. Lilia Tarawa is a New Zealand writer, speaker, holistic health consultant and business coach. She is a member of the Māori Ngāi Tahu tribe. Lilia was born into New Zealand's infamous religious cult, Gloriavale, and fled with her eleven family members at eighteen years of age. Her extraordinary life experience compelled her to pursue a career promoting human rights, welfare and empowerment.

Those are not christians, those are the opposite of the word Christian. They are like Satan but worst, no one should EVER make people suffer. Kinda ironic because they push themselves away from Satan but they are.

Never knew a 20 minute video could make me cry sad tears and happy too. So glad she's out of there and into this world showing people what she's really made of. Wish more women were like this!!!

Im sorry but the first story of abuse she told about the boy she liked really wasn’t that bad. Just about every kid has gotten the belt before.

Boring. Some kids got spanked, your best friend was able to leave, your parents wanted to leave but they wanted you to decide on your own? Then you did...

This was such an amazing talk. I've seen it twice now. I searched up the 'Gloriavale Christian Community' and I'm so saddened and disgusted to see that this cult has a website and openly talks about how great the cult is. It's so horrible to hear the things that they've actually done.

It's a great place to hide, if like to be calloused cruel to fellow man:. The WE THEM description of world is perfect setting for LOSING YOUR HUMANITY. Like Heart of Darkness was a pastors memoir - completely removed FEELINGS FOR MAN in service of God - very STRANGE AND ODD PEOPLE, if given any thought to matter!!!

Caleb Dahlheimer (2 дня назад)
she seeks gratification from others because she had been denied justified gratification, but now she's drunk on it; a being in a world that supports victims instead of preventing new one's from being created in the first place. I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I

My parents used to spank us, but it was always just, you know, a well-deserved slap that wouldn't hurt anything but our feelings. We got over it quickly. It never left a mark. If it's enough to leave an actual physical mark on the child, it DEFINITELY needs to stop. And if it turns the child against their parents, it's a problem
