Cost of becoming a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie: [forum.culteducation.com
That is a very important post that needs to be referred back to many times.
So the minimum seems to be about $23,000.
As stated, that does NOT include travel, hotel, etc, or time taken off paying-work, in lost wages.
It also doesn't include the "gifts" that so many people give. One person in the thread said they "gave" over $10K just in "gifts", some would "give" much more than that.
Also, some of those folks get lured into the Turnaround House, and other private "coaching".
So the number is easily $30K, and could be much much more if a person does a few more programs.
With about 115 "certified" facilitators so far, that is about 3 million dollars in fees, at rock bottom.
So millions are being made, and they are signing up more people everyday.
And any of those people can be PULLED at any time, for any or no reason.
Its not like a real "certification" which a person can take elsewhere.
And with over 100 "certified" facilitators, the pickings are going to be slim for the new people, as those with a "name" are going to take most of the clients.
It does make one wonder though, what happened to Steven Sashen promoting his Byron Katie "facilitating" on his websites, and others? Did they take it down on their own, or were they ordered to take down their links by BKI, so the business would be directed only through the BKI referral website?
This type of "franchising" and charging "certified coaches" is rampant in the new age field, everyone is doing it. They sign up dozens and hundreds of their own "coaches" or facilitators, who are forced to take every single course offered by the LGAT seminar coaching company.
This has been going on for decades.
In the end, where do most of these "certified facilitators" end up?
They end up simply as very high-ticket customers for the seminar corporation, and an unpaid labor force. Most of them lose their shirts. That is reality.
