"Meditate and Liberate"
Japa Yoga Concerns
]Japa Ireland: Toxic spirituality involving sexual-assault, “my breasts were massaged”.
Posted on 1 May 2023 by dialogueireland
Here is the testimony of an ex-Japa Ireland member:
Japa Ireland promise a happier life through “meditation, spirituality, personal-growth [and] philosophy”.
You are in a small meditation group somewhere in Ireland. It’s a two hour window for yourself a week, prayer & singing and you get a sense of peace and wellness afterwards. The people are friendly, kind and you build friendships over a cup of tea afterwards. However, this is where you get sucked in.
Then you’re told you must advance yourself. That means attending every Sunday night. All the therapists and meditation leaders push you to visit the big group in Kildare. Then you are pushed to do multiple courses and they encourage a trip to India that can change your life.
It’s an investment in your spiritual growth.
What does a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing mean?
The phrase comes from Oscar Wilde.
To be so materialistic that one is unable to gauge or recognize something’s true value.
This quote was used by Dennis Curran to give the impression that he was very spiritual and the followers materialistic. In fact, he was grooming people to hand over the loot.
You have to meditate and recite a mantra for many hours a day and read and study. Your life becomes consumed with this. You are asked in the group session how many hours you have done and shamed if you’re not putting in the hours. They claim they have magical powers, can see your aura and that they can see that you are having a negative effect on the group.
They then manipulate you to believe the master is suffering by taking all the negative energy on himself. He is a Christ figure who takes the sins on himself… He takes all the negative energy from others is what you are told. In reality you are being brainwashed...
People started to open up in these courses about personal struggles and family secrets. However, a lot of the time their personal information was repeated back to them and used as a control mechanism to influence them.
There were major boundary issues as your personal and confidential information was shared and you were shamed publicly.
They used it to shame you when you questioned them. You were seen as disobedient in having your own opinions.
They wanted you to only be connected to them so they tried to break your contacts outside Japa by calling them all toxic and they polluted your energy.
It was all about energy – negative and positive. If you failed in what they wanted you to do then your mind and your behaviour was negative. They took your vulnerabilities and they used them to fill you with fear and the only protection from those toxic people outside Japa who polluted your energy was to stay connected to them....
