The Spiritual Family The Work

Statement concerning recent accusations

Members of The Spiritual Family The Work have been accused by a former member of the community in Europe of sexual assault, sexual abuse and spiritual abuse.  Various public media are being used to bring these accusations to the public forum. The instances cited as sexual assault and sexual and spiritual abuse have all been investigated by ecclesiastical authorities and the accusations have been found to be unsubstantiated. The allegation of rape has been brought to the civil court of law in both Austria and Germany. Neither prosecutor found evidence for criminal charges.
The Spiritual Family The Work takes these accusations seriously and is committed to full cooperation with ecclesiastical and civil authorities with regard to these allegations.
