Nîmes: Cévennes shaman Loup Blanc, teacher of sexual harmony, remains in prison for rape

Cyrille Adam, 70, is the subject of a dozen complaints from former followers who report sexual assaults, rape and abuse of weakness. He disputes everything.

The little forty followers who unconditionally support the White Wolf shaman will still have to wait to see him again. On Thursday 6 October, the Nîmes Court of Appeal decided to extend his pre-trial detention. Cyrille Adam, 70, has been incarcerated since 10 December 2021 during an operation in Caimades (the sectarian aberration assistance and intervention unit) following a series of complaints by faithful who accuse him of rape, sexual assault and abuse of weakness.

Me Aoudia explains to Loup Blanc’s disciples the underside of the audience which took place behind closed doors.

On Wednesday 5 October, during the audience that took place behind closed doors, the “guru”, who in his teachings supports the release of energies and sexual harmony through tantric practices, defended himself from all rape. And according to his lawyer Me Khadija Aoudia, the accusations do not hold up: even if the complainants were under the influence, there is no intentional element.

“How does a man who receives the desire to have sex not respond positively?”

“How could we from afar maintain a hold so tempted to be proven? Come on, let’s also assume that they are under a hold. But they send very suggestive videos, of a pornographic nature, instead of a man whose love they cry out for him: how can he A man who is the recipient of the desire to have sex does not respond positively? I speak in terms of common sense, can you imagine that she does not consent to this sexual intercourse? One lacks the element, the awareness of the person having intercourse with a woman who requested it “he tells us. “And I’m not going to go into the high-profile cases of powerful people who are being accused by about 30 women and who have not yet been heard to date.”

But for me Jean-Baptiste Cesbron, the lawyer of the civil parties, the community founded by Cyrille Adam, in the form of initiations and internships between the Cévennes and the castle of Granès, in the Tarn-et-Garonne, is part of a sectarian mechanism and control.

“They were put in a situation where they couldn’t say no”

“The word of the plaintiffs was heard. When they talk about the facts, they burst into tears, they talk about automatic gestures, they found themselves in a situation where they forgot how they found themselves in particular positions with Cyrille Adam, who reflects what can be found in situations of rape or sexual assault. The submission is linked to their situation of abuse of weakness: they were put in a situation where they could not say no “reacts the lawyer. And the videos? “They never consented to a sexual relationship with Cyrille Adam as he conceived it. He offered a tantric work, through which, for them, it was a form of exploration not of their sexuality but of their spirituality. context, they found themselves in a situation of closeness with Adam and he abused this situation of intimacy to abuse his authority and power and impose sexual relations on them “.

Those close to the guru, they, annoyed, speak of “witch hunt”. The lawyer Me Aouadia intends on his part to appeal in cassation.
