Hi Sarv, I came to the same conclusion as you some time ago. Mooji uses hypnosis/trance. His videos leave you in a state of very relaxed confusion, if you are susceptible to trance induction. I felt very fuzzy-headed after watching the Mooji material and I began t have 'nihilist' thoughts, such as 'nothing matters'. I became very suspicious that something was not right with

Well, an update on this generally, during last weekend I was searching the forum about something else and came across some information others have already posted about the practice of hypnotism. This link, posted about something called Nested Loops gave me a brain click because of the “great” story teller I associated with Shunyamurti. Y’know, story telling and listening is great childlike fu

Thanks to Internet Archives Wayback Machine, here is a saved copy of a discussion of how neurolinguistic nested loops story telling works as a method of trance induction. One person in the discussion mentioned something called 'tonal chaining' -- utilizing voice inflection. See if, along with everything else, someone might just might use voice inflection. Just now I

Hi Billyboy, I would like to post some links for you to explore: A good general website all about hypnosis. The author does say that a type of indirect hypnosis can be used on people without their consent (they have no idea that they are being hypnotized) and that this is skill is dangerous, if it ends up in the wrong hands. This is a BBC documentary. It goes for a full hour

Keeping people waiting is a great way to build anticipation. Many gurus demand that devotees arrive and be seated on time, yet show up late themselves. Devotees, disciples, students, murids put up with this, assuming it is a lesson for their own diseased egos, a way to burn off nafs, impurities, samskaras, by enduring lateness from their beloved leader. It does not occur to them that this

Once the story is over, it is filed away, and the attention is shifted to the next thing.

Gurus or masters who giggle all the time, wiggle and waggle and tilt their heads in peculiar ways. Maharishi and Rajneesh did this. So, I am sorry to report, does the Dalai Lama. Wiggling and giggling. These can be part of an overall distraction technique. Another strategy is to tell long complicated stories that go on and on and tire and confuse you, or make you feel high in a way you

In fairness, I want to state that everyone is different. Some quite honorable and innocent literature may affect people.

I was knocked for a loop by a non Buddhist who used covert NLP. The guy had his audience all thrilled and excited at Lecture #1. Years later I went to lecture #2 and this same guy had most in the audience nodding off.

Another Danger of the Meditation Setting--Covert Use of LGAT 'tech' This can apply to 'satsangs'. There are all sorts of satsang teachers popping up like mushrooms after a rainstorm.

Reading Beelzebub's Tales would also be a good way to induce confusion--which in turn would induce or maintain an already existing trance state. Gurdjieff reportedly practiced early forms of medical hypnosis while still in Russia, treating people for alcoholism and experimenting on them. Gurdjieff told stories about himself and about others. Many stories about himself were resis

QuoteThe most worrying aspect of this is that the rituals are symbolic - beneath rational thought - and very dramatic and emotive - in the past they had to be very powerful to maintain the culture and rules, particularly where there was no literacy.

My hunch and it is personal opinion, is that Gurdjieff was a highly gifted hypnotist, had learned ways to induce trance through covert means, and his expertise was far in advance of those practicing medical hypnosis at that time. He probably learned that inducing confusion by every possible means and by making himself and his own story a massive tangle of contradictions was a way to induce tra

Anticult discussed nested look method here. It is my citizens opinion that-- The best thing to do is learn about nested loop story telling trance induction only to protect your agency from undue influence. Know this technique is out there, being used against us, but dont use it yourself. First, it is dehumanizing to treat any person as an object and you will slowly, without realizing it

It's interesting that the author describes the Tolle 'satsang' as well as that of Gangaji and Byron Katie as a show. Tolle may not have the overt skills of showmanship that Byron Katie displays but I noticed a well known raconteurs trick (often taught to public speakers) of meandering off on tangents but returning several times to a basic point: 'Just kidding, of course he
