[Part 2] After taking children to India & found by FBI, Sophia returns to India for 12 month silent meditation
After the FBI found Sophia LaFleur and her children in India (she left for India during a custody battle in Salt Lake City, Utah), Sophia returned to the ashram for a one-year meditation.
The secret police were searching for her and her children. Sophia had shaved her head bald. The people at the ashram she was staying at agreed to protect her. Despite this, she turned herself into the FBI and went to Utah to face felony abduction charges. She has spiritual breakthrough after spiritual breakthrough and you get to hear it in this interview.
She was led to a twelve-month silent retreat in India. She discusses what she did, the food she ate and ultimately who she became (and a surprising awareness about the spiritual ego).
It is a remarkable look at a mother's love and a spiritual odyssey unlike any I've heard before.
