Norwegian State TV Channel, NRK. A documentary about Jon Haralds life in a cult. (In Norwegian)



Changing focus from "broken keys" to feeling good

Joined a cult. 20 years break of playing the piano. Now I am back.

When I was 8 years old I started to play the piano. After some years of playing classical pieces like Beethoven and Mozart, the fun really started when I was taught how to compose my own music. I made my first small steps in composing a piano song when I was a teenager. I was like many other kids growing up, loved to play, be with my friends and my family. I loved music and in 1991 I got my first full-time job. I was a conductor of 2 choirs, playing the piano at meetings and working with teenagers.


In 1992, I joined a religious cult. It almost took my life. Their initial message was good but my life there became increasingly oppressive.  Playing the piano and being close to family and friends was not allowed. It was not allowed to have friends and to enjoy food. And all sexuality was forbidden.

We were daily waiting for the prophesied nuclear war and the persecution of the chosen bride of Christ. And I got so afraid of ending up in hell after this life, because I felt it was impossible to live perfect.

After eight years in the cult I was so traumatized I slipped into a mental breakdown and had no desire to live. I was in deep pain and my soul was ravaged by anxiety and depression. I was afraid of life, of God, afraid of people, of being judged, afraid of prosecution, imminent nuclear war and going to hell.

How did I change my life?
