Dondrup is powerhungry imposter
That must have not been a shaman at all. The shaman, REALLY wouldn't do that because they are here doing their activities to help others kickstart and go through their psychic-spiritual processes in order to ascend to higher consciousness and better (more harmonious) living. Definetely not the work of a shaman, but definetely the work of an imposter. The only possibility of such ac

Teal ‘spiritual catalyst’ - unfortunately the only catalyst here is emotional manipulation. Wether they were aware of what they were doing or not (that is Teal and Blake), videos were more often littered with careful edits surrounding various on camera emotional breakdowns that still kept the crying bits in, cut shortly before restarting.

Bakkagirl , I do appreciate what you are saying, - that it is held over your head that if you don't attend, you won't receive work. Also, that when you ask questions about the program itself, answers are vague to nonexistent. The course description is just as vague in the private sector. Nobody knows what they are buying. To have that held over your head at work threatens your ve

It is unethical for any meditation instructor to push his or her religious or political preferences at you. Deep trust is elicited during meditation instruction, and boundaries are lowered. An instructor is professionally and morally obligated not to exploit this, no matter how 'loving' his or her intentions. Native Americans regard Don M Ruiz as a Plastic Shaman - a fake. G

Re: gaslighting. The name of the movie is "Gaslight." Ingrid Bergman was in it. You can watch it for free on the internet. They do much of this in LE. The people who recruited me into LE leaned toward the metaphysical, (not all of them do), and would refer to gaslighting as "Coyote Medicine," in an attempt to legitimize it as spiritual.

Trinity has the website back up Main focus in promoting upcoming events in Peru. Although he also features video testimonials from people who attended the Washington events. In my opinion, these people were exploited for profit. The website still lists the same team members. I don't know if they are in Peru with him. Dylan Guss, the 23 year old logistics guy, says he is in Peru.

When you write to the DEA, just stick to the safety issue. Don't talk about cults, delusional pseudo-shamans, fake spirituality or any of that. That is outside of their purview and would muddy the issue for them.
