Cassandra Dakis Mooney (born 1952-07-23), a member of The Family International since 1972, has served as Vice President of the Activated Ministries since the Family-operated non-profit organization was formed in 1999.

In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Mooney spoke of her life in The Family:

"I was in the Family 5 1/2 years until I had sex -- and that was with my husband. We were prudish in a sense. I was a very wild hippie before I joined the Family, so that was a big change for me.”

Mooney concedes that changed in the mid-1970s, when the sect's founder, David "Moses" Berg, directed his female followers to practice "flirty fishing,” which allowed them to seduce male converts.

Asked whether she engaged in flirty fishing (or FFing) in the 1970s, Mooney replied, "Very little.”

"When it first started happening, we were in Beirut, Lebanon, which was a difficult place to do it,” Mooney said.

Mooney has also occasionally been entrusted with stewardship of assets owned or controlled by The Family. For example, on October 25, 2005, Christine Mlot and Kenneth L. Kelly appeared before Consul Martha A. Pacheco at the United States Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico and signed a power of attorney appointing Mooney as their attorney-in-fact for real estate transactions relating to a property (11482 Alps Ways, Escondido, CA 92026) they jointly owned. The power of attorney expired on December 24, 2005 and a database [1] mainatained by the San Diego County Recorder's office indicates that during the period in which the power of attorney was in effect, several transactions related to the property in question were recorded.

Known addresses include:

  • 2120 West Misson Road, Escondido, CA, 92029, USA
