Anyone who has studied NLP can instantly see that Byron Katie is doing a lot of NLP and hypnotic techniques, in her own style.
But what will blow your mind if you look into her, is that she is one of the most deceptive liars ever to come out of the NLP field, and that is saying a lot.
Byron Katie denies knowing anything about NLP, and says she became Enlightened by magic one-day in a half-way house when a cockroach spoke with her, or whatever. A complete bald-faced fabricated Past-History Story. (much like Eckhart Tolle, they just design a "good story" to sell to the public).
But Byron Katie was smart enough to go into New Agey spiritual-psychotherapy stuff, where her audience has never even heard of NLP, so she can get away with it. Of course, if she went into the NLP field she would be laughed offstage as a comedy parody act, until they realized she was not joking.
But even Byron Katie slips up.
For example, I show evidence in that other thread, that Byron Katie is long time personally associated with Stever Robbins, who is a longtime NLPer and who is into Erickonian Hypnosis as well.
(search Google for) : stever robbins byron katie
So its most likely Byron Katie hired Stever Robbins to work with her privately, or something along those lines.
That might sound ok to an NLPer, but its NOT if one looks into Byron Katie, as it exposes that the woman is literally a bald-faced pathological liar, and that would shock her New Age Seekers if they could only see beyond their own Katie-Trance.
Having worked with Richard Bandler personally, and I am convinced even Bandler would be appalled at what Byron Katie is doing to people, and that is saying a lot.
The woman is literally using those tools AGAINST people. She is Changing Past History in people without their awareness.
It is the most flagrant abuse of Ericksonian hypnosis I have studied, due to her vulnerable audience.
And EckhartTolle, while apparently not as sadistic as Byron Katie, is just as manipulative.
They are just common NLP practioner hack-hypnotists and persuaders, but they chose a vulnerable, and naive "spiritual" audience who doesn't ask questions. That is deliberate.
They could not do any of their tricks on an audience educated in NLP and hypnosis...and that is why they target a naive audience of spiritual seekers, as its like taking candy from a baby.
You will be shocked when you find out how Byron Katie uses these tools to get people to hand over their wedding rings to her personally as a "gift", and family heirlooms, and much more.
Even Bandler knows you can get vulnerable people to hand over their wedding rings to you using those tools, but you have to be profoundly sick in the head to do that to soccer moms, its sociopathic, if not worse.
And Oprah is going to promote Byron Katie to hundreds of thousands more naive soccer moms suffering depression and pain, and send them off to the mind slaughterhouse.
I am not too familiar with Byron Katie. I was given a book a long time ago but I never got to reading it. I will take a look at her material. She obviously has studied NLP, like most succesful sales-people. I have seen too many people manipulating their client without giving them the proper tools. They work their "magic" and the client feels better for a while. But without the tools or insights they will bounce right back to their previous state. Without being any wiser. Often with a worsening effect. Until you "join-the-circus" and buy more, more and more... ..
Ericksonian hypnosis and NLP are extremely effective and powerful techniques, covertly used they can perform "magic". If you have studied NLP you know you can really "fuck someone up" if you do it wrong..
Something is very wrong with Tolle/Katie...
