Abstract:

"Passionate Journeys explores the personal stories of high-achieving American women who in the 1980s left families, careers, and past identities to follow their spiritual leader Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh to his luxurious communal village in central Oregon." "Marion Goldman's rich ethnographical narrative provides a picture of the cultural and social climate that motivated established successful women to be drawn to participate in the Rajneesh movement. In their quests for spiritual meaning the women embodied the great shifts that took place in America's religious marketplace during the 1970s and 1980s."--BOOK JACKET.
