It isnt just a guru here and a guru there.

The entire satsang scene can set its own unspoken rules and taboos, and set people up to become vulnerable and recruitable.

Broad array of perspectives


Keep in mind that if someone directs a series of questions at you, and you answer yes, yes, yes, yes, that by itself can induce a light trance.

It is a technique known to hypnotists as the yes set.


Its possible people leading satsangs learn to do this without even being aware of it.

I know who his is but don't really have an opinion.

People seem to like him but I've never been particularly drawn to Parsons or his work.

That being said...I'm not aware of anyone having been 'harmed' by him in any way.

Tony Parsons

About Tony Parsons: The Anticult has citations here placing Tony Parsons as part of the Rajneesh commune, named Medina, in England.

Rajneesh studied hypnosis back when he was young. Anything to get influence over people.

Haven't researched Tony Parsons, but that should be looked at very carefully. Don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but please be very careful out there, this "non-duality" material can be very slippery.

It does seem that Tony Parsons was a follower of Osho/Rajneesh and a member of a commune called Medina Rajneesh in Suffolk in the 1980's.
There is no mention of Osho/Rajneesh on his website
There appears to be no biographical information at all on his website.

What does Tony Parsons have to say now about Rajneesh and his methods of creating and controlling the cult that he set up? That is probably the most important question for him to clarify in writing.

Some groups may be hard to define as a "cult", but the Rajneesh group was a classic cult, that did some very dangerous things, and that needs to be addressed factually and openly.

[] (Tony Parsons) Then: Construction (older sw)
Now:, with Clare 10/95

[] knew him (Tony Parsons) personally as a fellow commune member from Medina"

[] Guest's upbringing as a child of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh 'free love' movement in the Sixties left him anything but spiritually enlightened"

Osho-Rajneesh was an outrageous and extremely dangerous cult leader, The Golden Guru. []
