It is derided as a ‘secretive cult’ in the media, it’s leader described as a ‘seedy conman’ in parliament. For 25 years Kenja have fought all the world could throw at them. Yet Kenja isn’t going under. It is attracting a whole new generation.
But what is Kenja?
Last year Ken Dyers and Jan Hamilton allowed a film crew unprecedented access to the ‘spiritual evolvement centre’ they founded in 1982.
Welcome to a world where life’s purpose is defined, the human spirit discovered, and the universe itself explained. Welcome to a world where the lost can be found.
But beyond the apparent utopia Kenja are accused of practising a hypnotic form of mind control. Families blame the group for the disappearance of loved ones and the people of Kenja prepare to defend themselves against yet another court case.
How can the view from inside Kenja be so different to the one outside?
Through remarkable verite footage and candid interviews, Beyond Our Ken explores the anatomy and ambiguity of the ‘cult’ enigma. As Kenja attendees past and present describe their experiences we discover the extent to which environment defines our reality – a reality as fragile as the truth.
