I'm a journalist from VICE Magazine. I've been looking into Desteni for the past six months, and your thread about the group is the most thorough and clear dissection of Desteni that I've seen... It gets particularly interesting when the late Bernard Poolman chimes in.
I want to reach out to you guys on the message boards and see if anyone is willing to talk to me about their experience with Desteni, either on the boards or in real life. People close to the group have been very, very reluctant to speak with me. I'd love your help getting Desteni into the mainstream.
Happy to change names if that would feel more comfortable.
I am very impressed with the quality of dialog on these message boards. You guys are smart. I've got some new information on Desteni as well. Would love to bounce it off you (maybe privately, though--would rather not tip my hand to the Desteni crew).
Feel free email me, also:firstname.lastname@example.org
