They charge £500 for a 3 day weekend. ...But think what you get for your hard-earned cash: a 'Trust Walk' naked, at night, in the woods, in the snow, with cold winds, blindfold, being hazed (physically assaulted) by the staff, with a death threat if you let go hands. And they call THAT education. What the fcuk is educational about that. This cult organisation should be banned - period.
(insert heavy tone of sarcasm)
Oh, well then you should by a plane ticket for a holiday in the US! That way you can waste a weekend training here are only $600 instead of $1000! :shock:
You summed up some good stuff about the weekend but there is so much more hurtful activities that go on. I'm post-MKP by 8 months now and still trying to figure out all the sh1t they did to me with the help of a professional doctor.
"MKP does more than just have men dance naked.
Prior to the naked brother dance there is a "trust walk." The men are told to take off their clothes (keeping them on is NEVER given as an option).
The men are then blindfolded and instructed to hold hands. The naked, blindfolded men then are taken outdoors, even in December and in the snow. They are told that if they let go of the man next to them that they will be killed. While the naked men are being lead through the woods, other MKP staff members are taunting them, poking them with sticks and slapping their rear ends with branches. I know this for the fact because, not only was I one of the naked men, but I also participated in taunting the men. Prior to the trust walk the leaders instructed us to wack their rears with branches, scream in their faces and do what ever you could to totally terrify them.
Believe me, it was terrifying. When I went through the experience, after 2 days of next to no food and brainwashing, I literally thought I might die.
Can you imagine what this experience might do to a man who was sexually abused as a child?"
THIS THEY TERM 'EDUCATION' FOR WHICH THEY HAVE APPLIED FOR CHARITABLE STATUS.
