There are at least 3 Byron Katie interviews on that Life Coach Mary site, going back 5 years.
Will check out the BK audio later, but that Life Coach Mary website is absolutely LOADED with sales and persuasion tech. Its loaded top to bottom.
Even just starting with the basic sales stuff, email harvesting, daily tips to put her in people's MINDS everyday, "free" chapters of books called "gifts".
That is called RECIPROCITY in social influence and sales.
Her text is loaded with all sorts of the same types of permissive and persuasive language patterns.
She is using Social Proof in her language patterns, and everything else under the sun.
Life Coach Mary is also upselling people to "six-figure" coaching trainings working 3 days a week, charging 6 times more. So that means they would try to charge people more than $600 a hour. They will charge you whatever they can get out of you.
Try to get a "price" out of them, just try! They won't give a price, they will "interview" you first. Their price is HOW MUCH MONEY YOU GOT?? That is their price.
Life Coach Mary is a self-professed expert in SALES which means persuasion. She says she MASTERED SALES, which means she has studied advanced sales and persuasion.
The most advanced sales, is to present yourself to clients as people's "friend", that is a fact, that is what they teach, its very subtle stuff. [www.lifecoachmary.com
She has gone through the entire Tony Robbins LGAT system of numerous seminars, which uses many of the exact same advanced persuasion techniques being discussed.
She has also attended the Byron Katie School. Someone like Life Coach Mary, is someone who would understand most of the Tech being used at these seminars.
Life Coach Mary, is just another in a long line of "Life Coaches", who have seen that Byron Katie is the trendy thing right now.
When Byron Katie says there is no hidden stuff, and no catches, what she is saying is that its not OBVIOUS stuff, like some of these other lower-end people. Sophisticated sales and advanced persuasion are more subtle, friendly, and even invisible to most people.
The most advanced sales techniques, are based around being the clients "best friend". They literally know how to engineer that, and press those buttons in people. Its all there in the advanced sales manuals and methods which are taught everywhere these days.
Some people press the Divine Guru button in clients, others press the Best Friend button, some do both, and press many other buttons at the same time.
These are very smart and sophisticated people, who are experts in sales and subtle persuasion, that is the real skill-set. That is what brings in the $600 a hour for "coaching".
Life Coach Mary uses NLP hypnotic language patterns right here...
QUOTE: "Step Into the Experience of Coaching...Imagine a relationship with someone..."
That is literally taken right out of the books from Richard Bandler..."step into the experience"...that is to take someone into an Associated state of mind in their imagination (like they are really there in the present moment)...she would have picked that up from Tony Robbins, who got it from the NLP stuff. Its a direct copy.
Check out the endless list of tactics, and techniques being used on wannabe "coaches" by Mary E. Allen, Life Coach Mary.
Coaches, coaching the wannabe coaches. Note the use of the code word..."debts". They know their demographic, people in debt to their eyeballs from "coaching training". Its amazing how they do it.

I found a very recent interview between Byron Katie and someone called Mary E. Allen, who calls herself ‘America’s Inner Peace Coach’. [lifecoachmary.com
BK starts out with her usual love bombing and says to Mary: “Reading your website, everything around you is authentic, there are no catches in it, no hidden stuff. I can’t tell you how I appreciate that Mary”. The interesting thing is this: why would BK be focused on there being no catches and no hidden stuff, why would that be the first thing she would notice? Perhaps BK needs to turn this one around: “I am full of catches and there is a lot of hidden stuff”. Funny to see how she gives herself away immediately, within the first 2 minutes of the interview.
