Royal Way literally scrubbed the internet of all references to Royal Way and Michael, and they tried to shut this thread down too. They are simply just afraid of people analyzing what they are doing.
So after that failed, they must have decided to put some info up to try that for a while.
They even are using what appears to be his middle name.
Michael Menahem Gottlieb
They even launched his Official Story, so its nice to know there is yet another Enlightened Godman in the world. It appears he was an Enlightened Godman and a Psychotherapist at the same time?
Sounds like he started to take the therapist God-Complex seriously.
Its just another psychotherapist who let the power go to his head, and who started to believe in the projections of his analysands (patients), Jung wrote about that. Many therapists are tempted to turn themselves into Godmen, and Godwomen. They are supposed to fight against that, not sell it for money, and start a cultish group around themselves.
The Teaching part of the website, is the typical new agey gibberish, meant to confuse people,and then lure them in to try and figure it out. Standard stuff.
One interesting tidbit is he CLAIMS to have studied parasychology in "Russia"? Notice how he sneaks that in, that is so people think he MIGHT have SUPERNATURAL powers to read your mind! (he doesn't, that is called having snitches and hidden microphones and video cameras). Obviously, he tries to pretend he can read minds. Don't fall for it.
And he is a Spiritual Master who "studied in the East". With who? When? (again, another Mystery Story to make people's eyes glaze over and think he has supernatural Yogic powers...yawn...).
Oh, and he is also a Rabbi?
Is he selling Kabbalah too?
Launching that website is a big mistake for Royal Way. Now people can see how ridiculous it is, when they are not involved in Groupthink and peer pressure.
Michael Menahem Gottlieb is a spiritual Master who created Royal Way as an instrument for bringing modern man and woman to the experience of God. Initially he named this vehicle for spiritual growth Jacumba, because his own extraordinary awakening came in 1977 at the summit of Mount Jacumba.
Always drawn to the East, Michael lived as a renunciate in an ashram. He journeyed across India and Nepal several times. Living and working with the outstanding masters of that period, he confirmed his deep understanding of the various systems of yoga and meditation. He also explored Tibetan Buddhism with the Master Lamas of Dharmsala.
In his youth, at age 22, Michael was ordained rabbi. He continued a scholarly pursuit for two years at the Gur Aryeh Institute for higher learning. At age 24, Michael was elected head of an Orthodox congregation in New York. At age 30, he was appointed dean of Chaim Joseph Rabbinical Seminary.
For 14 years, Michael proclaimed and taught the word of God according to the Torah and the Talmud.
