Taking back your life, NXIVM, and turning negatives into positives with India Oxenberg

Taking back your life, NXIVM, and turning negatives into positives with India Oxenberg

November 11, 2020
***TRIGGER WARNING SEXUAL ASSAULT & SENSITIVE TOPICS***
 
On this week's episode of I’m Over It, I sat down with producer, writer, advocate, and survivor of D.O.S & NXIVM, India Oxenberg. You most likely have heard about NXIVM as it’s been in the news quite a lot this past year! You may have even watched a documentary or two. The Vow, an HBO documentary that follows multiple people’s experience trying to get out NXIVM, or Seduced on Starz, which India produced herself. 
 
India also wrote a book titled “Still Learning”, which details her experience before, during, and after NXIVM. “Still Learning” is available on Audible now! 
 
I also highly recommend tuning into Seduced, which is a four-part series narrated by India herself, focusing specifically on stories of the women who were indoctrinated, blackmailed, coerced, and eventually recruited into the sex cult D.O.S., along with their path to healing.
 
India has bravely come out to tell HER story the way SHE experienced it ~ click here to read her victim impact statement read at Raniere’s recent sentencing (he was sentenced to 120 years)

BUT, that’s just one of the MANY things on Alexis’ list of accomplishments. Along with PB Resources, Alexis is also a Koding with Klossy scholar and Microsoft partner.
