“Has anyone else been a member of this group--or has anyone even heard of it? The leader's name is FAYE FITZGERALD—“
So glad to have made this connection with you. In the last year there has been a lot done to expose Faye Fitzgerald and Training in Power. A high level trainer in Seattle sent an expose to the boards and students, and at the end of March a yahoo support group was formed for ex-trainers by a student in Canada, with 29 members and growing. I too wrote to Rick Ross, but as you said unless something is published, more information cannot be placed in his listings.
We are finding another way, and that is to begin linking and creating websites and blogs ourselves so that the insidious damage that Faye has caused and is still causing can be exposed. Many of us are committed to telling this story, not only to slow Faye's ability to attract and entrap people, but also to educate the public as to the reality of how smart, innocent people can be slowly led out of the reality of their lives into someone else's fantasy story.
At the time you left there was very little support. Leaving this group is hard, and the recovery even harder. I do hope you're doing ok now, and if you find it helpful I invite you to email me at email@example.com
for information about the yahoo support group, which offers the choice to be anonymous.
The need for anonymity is beginning to lift because there are so many of us now. The more stories that are told and witnessed about people's experiences in the training, the more people feel they can be open and confident in naming the abuse. The group is for ex-trainers only, and is an active courteous dialog with all input welcome.
The advice you have been given on this site is wise and helpful. Just know you are not alone in having to recover from the abusiveness of Training in Power. Your dissociative episodes are not unusual in that you were taken pretty far out of reality. Training in Power is indeed a cult, an abusive group, led by a narcissistic charismatic delusional despot. Those she leaves in her wake (still happening) show every symptom written about in cult literature. It takes a fricken long time to get the conditioning out, to re-enter the world of normalcy, of real humanity, and let go of the conditioned need for the drama, the group, and the intensity of the high spiritual purpose you were led to believe you were chosen for! Whew, long story short.
I'm sure by now you have done a lot for yourself along the road to recovery. If you wish to read an expose on the training, one is available in the links below. That may be all you need to catch up on the latest and vindicate your feelings! It is said that this document called 'Lessons in Awareness' and will stay on a public site as long as the training persists in its destructive ways. Also included below are links to two public blog sites with members own writings and postings from communications on other sites.

If you want to write, I will be more than happy to respond. Best wishes on your journey, you are truly a Somebody to have left this group and braved the journey of recovery.
