Director Cecilia Peck and producer Inbal Lessner know cults.

They’ve been following high-control groups — most notably NXIVM and Twin Flames Universe — for the better part of a decade, and their diligence has resulted in two of the most captivating documentaries of the last few years. In 2020, the director-producing pair released “Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult,” a four-part series telling the story of NXIVM and its leader Keith Raniere, who was found guilty on charges of sex trafficking, wire-fraud conspiracy, forced-labor conspiracy, and racketeering, which included production and possession of child pornography, and sentenced to 120 years in prison.

This month, Peck and Lessner’s latest project, “Escaping Twin Flames,” about the “romance attraction” cult of Jeff and Shaleia Ayan, hit Netflix. The Ayans, who now go by Jeff and Shaleia Divine, run Twin Flames Universe, a 43,000-strong Facebook group and online community offering classes and one-on-one sessions aimed at finding your one true love — for a price.

The Ayans say they’re simply helping people connect with their true “twin flame” — or soulmate. But former members of TFU allege the group engaged in abusive and cult-like behavior, including coercing members into working for free, pressuring members to change genders, and operating a multi-level marketing scheme.
