Collusion and Cover-up in the Non-dual Community
In video #10 I talk of the lies, deceptions and systemic complicity in the greater non-dual community in their covering for the existential controls over this life, and the lives of my family at the hands of my former teachers (Nome, Russell Smith and Candace O’Denver, aka Candice Rinpoche).
This complicity around the ‘information’ I’ve had to hold (under threat) includes not only such well-known teachers as Adyashanti and Gangaji but *many* of the teachers, not only affiliated with those two teachers, but many currently acting teachers in the non-dual space.
Teachers and/or ‘friends’ who directly knew about the deceptions of Nome at SAT (Society of Abidance in Truth) in Santa Cruz, CA and Russell Smith (who later went to Candace O’Denver’s (aka Candice Rinpoche) Great Freedom/Balanced View in a capacity unknown by me but most certainly included the ‘development’ of a Dzogchen-like teaching which he shared with me in a taped session) include: Adyashanti, Gangaji, Stephan Bodian, Jeff Foster, Leonard Jacobson, Rupert Spira, Bentinho Massaro, Ramana Spencer, Michael Harrington, Steven Walters, Colleen Loehr, Vicki Woodyard, Kristy Thompson, Kiran Trace, Susanne Marie, Jon Bernie, Nishkala Leslie Jenney, Rosemary Ferrara Cochran, Aile Shebar, John Astin, John Wheeler, Eliot Weber, Prajna Ginty (now known as Prajna O’Hara), Jeannie Zandi, Marlies Cocheret, Sonya Amrita Bibilos, Mary Winslow and Peter Hanson, Marilyn Madden (longtime family friend of Adya), Prema Akasha (now Maja Apolonia Rodé), Karen Richards and many, many others . This list only includes only those I know or had contact with. Ultimately…if one is awake they know of this harm.
There were also some who may have actually been *paid* by SAT to ensure my silence… Bentinho, Michael Harrington, Steven Walters, Kristy Thompson, Kiran Trace and Bob Haber…and possibly others.
(*teachers listed here are not being singled-out but indicate some of whom I had merely had contact with in some form. Most teachers…if not all…know of the ‘information’ I was forced, under threat, to carry regarding the lies of those teachers. Ultimately…if one is awake they know of this harm.)
As I have opened up the dialogue regarding the coercion, colluding and coverup in the non-dual community I have been met with silence.
Silence, as we all know, speaks a very loud message.
The complicity within the non-dual community around the lies of the above teachers is systemic.
In a space that involves liberating teachings many have lied directly to me regarding their knowledge of my former teachers and of what occurred at their hands.
In this sense, there is no correlation between Awakening and how one is as a human being.
This systemic dynamic of collusion begs the question: What would a conscious person and/or ND organization actually do if there has been harm at their hands?
