ADYASHANTI and his Collusion with the Existential Control of Nome, Russell Smith and Candace O’Denver

On March 2nd (Admin of) the FB Association for Spiritual Integrity (ASI) Discussion Group posted:
“We are excited to let you all know that the Association for Spiritual Integrity has been invited to present at the Harvard Divinity School Conference….Jac O’Keeffe, Philip Goldberg, and Rick Archer will be leading an interactive workshop on "Lessons from a Young Organization Making a Difference,” about the work of the ASI.”

Given the *hypocrisy* of the ASI’s attendance I wrote the following:

Is this the same Rick Archer and Jac O’Keeffe who I addressed the following letter (dropbox link below) to?


Instead of saying “How can we help?”…I was told Nome, Russell Smith and Candace O’Denver (who goes by too numerous aliases to mention) that they were NOT members of the ASI, and therefore the ASI could NOT help me.

Jac O’Keeffe and Lauren Medeiros met with me on Zoom for 30 minutes concluding ONLY that contemporary non-duality is the ‘wild west’ and…

…Rick Archer who, on a private messenger thread with @ 50 others, chided my reporting…and the **description of the deliberate separation of my family**…defiantly asked me “How’s that going for ya?”
(in reference to my reporting).

This case involving 4-generations of my family is arguably one of the most existentially damaging to a life/lives…not to mention to the integrity of the teachers/teachings.

Are these the SAME PEOPLE who are going to the Harvard Divinity School??

How about a live…and OPEN…meeting with one of the more significant and influential teachers who *absolutely* participated in the existential controls of Nome/Russ/Candice?

Adya could look me straight-in-my-eyes and tell me (unequivocally) that not only does he know nothing of Nome but he, himself, didn’t have his OWN HANDS directly involved in the ‘Compression Years.’

How about that??






Truth & Integrity contain non-duality but non-duality, most definitely, does not guarantee truth *nor* integrity.

Hi Leslie, I am not sure if you are aware of Jac O'Keefe/ how and what she teaches, but she seems to be somewhat of a small time byron katie. A friend of mine was part of the ASI and dropped out after discovering her behavior, some of which they read in transcripts of her live satsangs, which include her doing everything from pressuring participants to engage in masturbation, watching pornography (at home), give their partners blowjobs, planting false traumatic memories, encouraging people to engage in violence including physical fights, it just gets creepier and creepier and frightenting how much she is damaging people, in the name of extreme spiritual bypassing. She teaches trauma victims to realize that "it never happened" and that our lives are merely a projected movie that are not actually happening at all. I don't understand how it could be possible that she runs an org for spiritual integrity.
