Cohen went from spiritual guide to master manipulator. His students became willing partners in that scheme.
For years after his departure in 2001 Yenner remained silent. Like others he was pressured under "extreme psychological distress and in an emotionally crushed state of mind" into giving his $80,000 and a few years after he finally broke with Cohen he wanted it back. Cohen agreed but made Yenner sign a five-year non-judicial but binding gag order to not speak about his experiences at Foxhollow or with Cohen. The gag order expired in 2008, hence Yenner was free to publish his disclosure book.
