SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight we welcome author and Jonestown survivor Laura Johnston Kohl to the show. When 914 members of Peoples Temple and four visiting Americans died in Guyana, South America on November 18, 1978, Laura Johnston Kohl survived. She was one of 87 who lived through the trauma.
After participating with the Black Panthers, and attending Woodstock, Laura moved into Peoples Temple in California in 1970, and was an active and enthusiastic member until the day it ended. She moved to Guyana in March 1977. She frequently traveled between Georgetown and Jonestown, a 24-hour boat ride, but moved into Jonestown in October 1978. Laura’s survival was a fluke.
It took twenty years for Laura to rebuild her life and have the determination to research this tragedy. The first ten years were spent in Synanon. Then, she reunited with many of the other survivors to put the pieces together and to get some understanding. After ten years she wrote her autobiography.
LAURA JOHNSTON KOHL
Laura Johnston Kohl grew up as an activist in Washington, D.C., and watched as many of her heroes were assassinated in the 1960s. While she was in high school and college, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and others were killed. That had a huge impact on her. She attended college in Connecticut and continued her commitment to work for change and to make a difference. While exercising her civil rights to protest peacefully, she was tear-gassed while protesting the war in Viet Nam. After a brief marriage, a visit to Woodstock, and a stint working with the Black Panthers, she moved to California to join her sister.
Soon after that, she was introduced to Peoples Temple and spent the next nine years in California and Guyana. She was away from Jonestown on the day when 913 of her friends and family died. The next twenty years were spent recovering, and rebuilding her life
Our special guest tonight is Laura Johnston Kohl, Jonestown survivor and author of “Jonestown Survivor: An Insider’s Look.”
Laura Johnston Kohl was in Georgetown when the mass murder/suicide of 918 people occurred in Jonestown. Laura has written the book to tell her perspective of this tragic event in history.
In Laura’s past, she was an activist in Washington D.C. and watched as many of her heroes were assassinated in the 60s. During her years at college in Connecticut, she actively worked to make a difference in the world. Laura protested peacefully to fight against the war in Viet Nam and was tear-gassed in the process. She married, divorced and made a trip to Woodstock, followed up by a period of working with the Black Panthers. Soon after, she moved to California to be with her sister.
During this time, she was introduced to Peoples Temple where she spent the following nine years in California and then moved to Guyana with the group. She was away from Jonestown on November 18, 1978, when 913 of her friends and family died.
Tonight, Laura will talk about her life in Jonestown and her book, “Jonestown Survivor: An Insider’s Look”.

Rev. Laura M. George, J.D., is a Virginia-based author, attorney, teacher, and spiritual seeker. In 2004, she founded The Oracle Institute, an educational charity, which serves as an “Advocate for Peace and a Vanguard for Conscious Evolution.” Oracle operates an award-winning publishing house, a multi-faith spirituality school, and a peacebuilding practice. Oracle’s icon is the Pentacle, which represents the emerging Fifth Spiritual Paradigm and the potential for unity among the five major religions (Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam). Oracle’s formal mission statement is Thomas Jefferson’s Act for Religious Freedom.
Oracle studies “religiosity” in America and throughout the world, and Laura often writes about the “Trickle-Down Deity Theory,” which posits that mankind’s view of the Godhead necessarily defines all cultural experience. Recently, Oracle launched a full-spectrum micro-community called the “Valley of Light,” which is based on Barbara Marx Hubbard’s “Wheel of Co-Creation” and the most successful community on the planet – The Federation of Damanhur. Currently, Laura is overseeing construction of the “Peace Pentagon,” Oracle’s new headquarters and the heart of the Valley of Light community. Laura also is the author of Oracle’s award-winning foundational trilogy: The Truth: About the Five Primary Religions (2006); The Love: Of the Fifth Spiritual Paradigm (2010); and The Light: And the New Human (due 2016).

As I often say in my presentations, it’s a DANGEROUS time to be a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan because there is just SO much merchandise out there. Pretty much whatever you want you can find it with either Laura Ingalls Wilder or Little House on it. You can even find unexpectedly odd things like a dogtag or a bobble-head doll. Where do you find all this stuff? It’s one of my post frequently asked questions at my programs so we’ll go over that too. So gather up your books, your stuffed Jacks, your Charlotte Dolls, and all your books, and listen up as we discuss how to organize your Laura Ingalls Wilder collection.
