One wonders why on earth the NYT fell for the Vetterlein(sp?) connection, when there's an abundance of material, complete with citations, linking Daedone with Baranco. Ten years ago, at a class in journalism, the instructor told us that many print media publications no longer paid to have a full time fact checker on staff, and instead would hire free lance fact checkers, or expected jou

Daedone's biography on the personalifemedia.com page was scrubbed of references to Baranco very recently. This is what it used to say, courtesy of Google cache: "Daedone left her career as owner of a successful art gallery in San Francisco and began a spiritual path that started with the study of theosophy. After three years, Nicole realized she no longer wanted to practice a discipli

Another thing that is comical, is that Daedone stated to the NYT, that her Guru was in fact Ray Vetterlein, and not Victor Baranco. Well, do a Google search for... Vetterlein Daedone See if you can find ONE SINGLE reference of Vetterlein's Guru connection with Daedone before the NYT article of the last week. Nothing comes up at all. Zero. Its all from this week. Before that, Robe

well, Reese Jones is officially out of the closet when in comes to OneTaste. He promoted a link to the NYT article on OneTaste, in the cleverly chosen "Style" section, on his Twitter account.

OneTaste has gotten a lot of blog-press from their NYT article. Unfortunately, some of the analysis of it, is not too deep! Like many things, they seem to take what is said at face value. OneTaste says its all about the female orgasm and sensuality. Is it? Or is it much more complex than that? OneTaste is a for-profit business corporation. But they market it like a "commune". Its

The OneTaste wikipedia entry (lie) that said Daedone studied "briefly" with Vic Baranco has been undone, which is good. But it does prove, there are OneTaste members who are trying to rig the Wikipedia entry for OneTaste with false information, as much as they can get away with. Why are they so dishonest?

and of course, right BEFORE this fake-article was released, there were about 50 edits done to the Wikipedia entry for OneTaste.

also notice how they deliberately ignored...the cost, the pricing. Notice how expensive the prices were listed in this thread for some people, where others could "donate their labor" whatever that means.

SFBMoore, thank you for the info. Its helpful when former people of a group are able to take the time to write out some of the details of a group. That will help a lot of people over time. This is the best way to combat these various cultlike groups, to expose the facts of what is going on.

This from the OneTaste Wikipedia entry: Quote..."orgasmic meditation" — involving partially-clothed, i.e. pantsless, mutual masturbation in a large group — and naked yoga.

That message from the PSI member above, is a very standard technique. Verbal shaming. This is the reason the leaders of LGAT groups like PSI, Landmark, Vic Baranco (OneTaste, Nicole Daedone), Scientology, Byron Katie, and many others, all do so-called "charity" work for children, or food for homeless people.
