Gerette Buglion is the author of An Everyday Cult, a narrative non-fiction that weaves cult dynamics with her personal memoir. As a lifelong educator, Gerette was humbled when she emerged from a controlling group at age 54 after an 18 year odyssey with a charismatic teacher. She asked herself, How did I, an educated, caring mother, wife and business owner, become that lost and for that long? Gerette dusted off her discerning mind and set to work studying cultic dynamics and mind control while reclaiming her autonomy with the help of a supportive family, excellent therapy and countless hours immersed in nature. An Everyday Cult will be released in May 2021 by Rootstock Publishing.
Gerette has attended and presented at the annual conference for ICSA, the International Cultic Studies Association for the last five years. She and her husband, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, co-facilitate a cult recovery support group. Buglion also launched and co-facilitated Cults & Culture, a year long community discussion forum at Morristown Centennial Library. Gerette is a regular contributor to Medium, most recently publishing an article titled, https://gerette.medium.com/
