If Jacs' behavior wasn't enough to show the org is compromised, which it obviously is, I looked into the 3 other co-founders and seeing major red flags about another co-founder Craig Holliday...
In the description of every one of his youtube videos, he likens himself/his teachings as similar to a list of people that include many teachers that are well-known as dangerously unethical, have well-documented history of manipulation/abusiveness, including known cult leaders!"Craig's Nondual teachings are similar to those offered by Adyashanti, Sri Aurobindo, A. H. Almaas (The Diamond Approach), Matt Kahn, Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now), Scott Kiloby, Byron Katie, Teal Swan, Deepak Chopra, Jeff Foster, Bentinho Massaro, Eli Jaxon Bear, Matt Kahn, Rupert Spira, Gangaji, Michael Beckwith, Ester Hicks, Mooji, Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, and other similar teachers found on Buddha at the Gas Pump (batgap.com)."
Perhaps the MOST well-known cult leader in the nondual scene who has hurt and abused so many peopleInside the Mooji Cult
A known dangerous cult leader.https://culteducation.com/group/1289-general-information/36420-massaro-s-organization-is-a-cover-to-give-him-everything-he-craves-power-money-and-women.htmlTeal Swan
- constantly shown to engage in dangerous cult-like behavior that puts her followers at serious risk of harm, and Rick Archer, another co-founder of ASI even removed Teal Swans' interview on BATGAP because of ethical concerns!Eli Jaxton Bear
- this teacher had a 3-year affair with his student and resigned from his org when it got out (https://bit.ly/3NIOisN)
There have been ongoing discussions here on cult education forum about the unethical, cult-like behavior of several of the other "teachers" Craig is promoting himself as associated with:Byron Katie https://forum.culteducation.com/read.php?4,9147,page=1Gangagi & Eli Jaxon Bear https://bit.ly/3PmtiJzMore Gangagi https://forum.culteducation.com/read.php?12,81688

A baseline for anyone who wishes to advocate for integrity and ethics, is NOT being associated with known abusers. Besides the obvious implications, it gaslights people who have been harmed by these teachers when an org founded to support ethical teaching supports known abusers. It shows a willingness to enable them, promote them, and that either they lack the ability to discern abusive unethical teaching behavior, or that they know and don't care, both of which are extremely disturbing!
He is also teaching practices on youtube like primal breathwork that are dangerous to teach when not there with the student, and when not specifically trained in it, as well as things as other risky things like opening all of your chakras at once. In the past, you can see he included disclaimers on some of the videos, but he STOPPED including them awhile ago. ??
