Another thing that has become abundantly clear with James Arthur Ray, is the incredible influence and power he has over those who have attended many of his seminars.
His "advanced students", as the lingo goes.
Like most other LGAT seminars, the seminar guru makes his followers SWEAR TO SECRECY the things that go on behind closed doors in the seminar. They tell their followers this is for others, but in fact its about keeping the techniques of what goes on SECRET, so they are more powerful on newbies.
Once a person studies up on these advanced LGAT seminars, the techniques don't work as well, as you can see what he is trying to do to you. So this is why everyone from Landmark to Byron Katie to James Arthur Ray try to make their followers keep everything secret. They even sign them to gag-orders, but also use every technique of coercive and permissive influence in the book on them.
(most people don't seem to know yet that "Voluntary permissive influence" is far more powerful than coercive influence).
The LGAT seminar leaders are many years ahead of most of their critics.
But it goes much deeper than that in this case.
Its very clear that James Ray has a group of core people around him, who will carry out his wishes.
There also are those who appear more than willing to spin-doctor, distort, and lie on his behalf. Of course, that gets more approval from the Master.
That being said, there also has to be a number of those involved who have doubts, or who have left the James Ray situation. Hopefully their conscience will prompt them to speak out about things they have seen.
For example, what really happened with Colleen Conaway at the Horton Plaza in San Diego on July 25 2009?
How many people from the James Ray seminar were at the mall at the time?
Was everyone from the seminar there?
There are already a couple of online statements found so far, that show a number of people from the James Ray CAW seminar were at the mall at the time. One comment is framed as to sound like it was a "coincidence" they bumped into other participants. Ain't buying that one.
At minimum, these LGAT's send groups out with a "buddy", never alone.
On top of that, they ALWAYS have the LGAT seminar "minders" breathing down people's necks. So someone is not telling the entire truth.
Another simply spoke of how the police were called to an event. There might be more postings elsewhere, if so, please link to them.
"I was emotional damaged myself at the event in San Diego. It took me a couple of months just to gather myself together again to be able to function. [...]It was the 2 "outtings" that threw me for a loop. We were dropped off in a city and told to "act" homeless. It was traumatic for me and then we were dropped off at one of the richest neighborhood in the US for a scavenger hunt. It was during these 2 events that I had emotional trauma. There was also an incident where the police were called."
And looking at the information posted online, there appears to be a 2 day delay before they were able to identify Colleen Conaway.
(notice the comments from months ago pointing the blame at the James Ray seminar)
Can it really be that she died at the Horton Plaza mall without her ID on her, and no one from the James Ray seminar spoke up and identified her?
Anyone who was there that day, and knows what happened, was everything reported?
If not, now is the time to do so.
