yes, the information in this thread about Byron Katie from many different sources is very accurate. The specific effects of the LGAT techniques in her seminars still need more fleshing out too.
And it would help to hear more disclosure from people on the process of how they got DEEPER into the BK system. For example, Byron Katie asks some people she is recruiting in person, to write her detailed information about former gurus, everything they can think of, and then she uses that information when dealing with the person. That SPECIFIC information she gathers is the most powerful, general techniques only have a limited utility.
but her "weird stories" are based on a perversion of aspects of hypnotherapy, that is not an opinion, that is a fact. That is just reality.
The Work system is really terribly deceptive and clever, they start you out with a so-called "free" question process, and the next thing you know you are up to your neck in quicksand, trapped in the madness of the Byron Katie system, which is literally designed to be LIFE-LONG. That is also a fact, its in the text.
Also, many of the same techniques and methods, apply to various other new agey gurus and anti-guru's who do many of the same tactics. so it goes far beyond Byron Katie.
They might use different stories, different philosophies, and different presentations, but the core methods and objectives remain quite similar, even if not as extreme, or god forbid, even worse.
