Asmallbitofguidence...I'm rather curious as to how you found your way onto this forum given that your involvement was over 20years ago. Why the sudden interest? You clearly come across as a 'foot soldier'. Quoting stats, ratios and giving us your guidelines on who should or shouldn't attend. The very same guidelines that just happen to be in the forms you sign before under

Morning all, Thank you for your feedback. It was an interesting evening. You are spot on with all the smiles and hugs all around. If you knew my brother and his wife before this, you would have been as surprised as me. The presentation went on for almost 2 hours with Royee Banai was selling the course like a top notch salesman, I almost felt like a complete loser for NOT wanting to improve my

Good day, I found your forum when searching for info on Baruch Banai and the Insight centre of Light. I am writing because my brother, his wife and their son attended a Turning Point training session presented at the centre of light and, they subsequently invite my mom and sister as well as myself to a guest evening TONIGHT. I became very suspicious about this when my brother told me that he lo

Hi Sumi So sorry to hear about this. The thread is alive, and Banai continues to wreak havoc on peoples' lives. Let me know if you want to talk about it, I have also been through all three workshops and almost lost my marriage in the process. Those workshops are not healthy, and one can be so easily misled by the beautiful promises made of purposeful lives, understanding your life vision,

Dear sumi: Over the years, others have discussed Insight Centre of Light. One way to recognize an LGAT or other type of irresponsible seminar is the type of waiver form subjects must sign as a condition of participation. In effect, you give them credit for your successes -- and by signing that waiver form, you release them from all responsibility if you are harmed. You are signing awa

Having had personal experience of courses run by Steven Gullan, I’d like to address this post by “MarkR” who I believe is negligent in his research at best and blatantly lying at worst. You decide which is more likely. “The South African Life Dynamics Training CC is a training company... I can assure you it is not a LGAT and certainly is not a cult in any way.” Really?

After having gone through my experience with the Insight Training Centre, it still pains me that there are still innocent and reasonable people who still go there and there is nothing I can do. I would like to consider myself a reasonable person, so I did a basic internet search on the centre and did not find anything suspicious or untoward so I thought it was all above board. It was only through

I have just spoken to a friend about Baruch Banai. The man has some interesting history. My friend did courses in about 1992/92 in Durban, South Africa, led by Banai. The name of the organisation presenting the courses? est! A number of others who were involved with est at that time have gone on to start other LGATs. The name Pat Grove came up.
