So what I learned from this episode is that:

A) getting a divorce in NYC seems to directly be related to wanting to try out cults. First Keith with Landmark and now Chemda - 'warning this retreat has cult like brainwashing tendencies' came up on the first page when I googled. I love the overlap to my other podcast obsession for True Crime/Cult News

B) Chemda you need to go on more vacation if you are that bad at packing. Which is generally something I recommend to everybody - getting out of your regular environment every once in a while is a necessity.

C) Get the My Favorite Murder ladies on the show. SSDGM <3

Well. No, thanks, probably.

Now I *really* get why Chemda made the Facebook post about being ready to start yelling for ten days. Heh.

I mentioned the Quepasana in another show thread when you first mentioned you wanted to do a silent meditation retreat because to me those other ones always sounded like misery. I was in Maui in May and my friend had just done her Quepasana and it honestly sounded like a 10 days of camping in paradise so I was instantly sold. There's a waiting list but maybe check out it out... https://www.quepasana.com/

also Rojo for guest host!

I read this article about someone who did the same silent retreat while Chemda was busy sitting and being quiet:

https://medium.com/s/story/what-real...a-7c3ad60d027e

I have questions. How'd this bitch take pictures of people and places there when you're supposed to relinquish everything, no technology? It sounds like a rigorous program, certainly, but if Chemda can't even silently giggle at farts, how's someone else getting away with taking all kinds of photos and whatnot?

I think the most shocking thing about the whole story is that Chemda left the house for a 10 day trip with no toiletries!!!

I can't go to the grocery store without at least a toothbrush and a tube of lipstick on me. That would've made me so anxious, I wouldn't have lasted more than an hour.

I voted yes because, after thinking about alot about it, I think that cult R Kelly successfully started and maintains is dumber than this hippie, no shorts, oatmeal and raw cereal cult
