Thank you. I am aware that there are therapists who recommend MKP. It is very disheartining to try to seek help on the matter. I did ask my therapist right away if she was a Woman Within. She isn't, but never-the-less poo-poohed my concerns, saying to "think of it as a bunch of men playing games in the woods". At the time I did have bigger isses to deal with, so I listened and put MKP on the back burner. Just saw her today (having worked thorugh the other issues) and spoke to her about our marriage, MKP again. She agreed that I should have concerns and could understand a bit of it.
Tonight I am going to see my husband's therapist along with my husband. Husband wants me to come to try to work out our marriage difficulties. (Our marriage difficulties started before MKP). Thing is MKP was able to grasp on to my husband at a very weak time in his, and our lives and it has intensified EVERYTHNG!
One thing, you say that therapy is not about comformity, (and I agree) but if I bring that up tonight my husband will say that MKP is NOT about conformity. He will say that each man takes whatever learned as an individual..bla bla..incorporates it into his own life..bla bla.. that he can say what he wants any time...bla bla..that he is in a "safe container".
We will have other things to talk about first (marriage difficulties before MKP)
I think I am going to bring it up tonight as a trust issue in our marriage. I have been decieved. Either MKP is misrepresenting themselves and not being forthright, or my husbsand is.
1. I was told that it was a one time weekend seminar type "thing" in the woods wih all food included..
2. Next I am told that there will be 10 follow up meetings.
3. Now I have been told that husband is going to continue to meet with them once a week.
Of course, WE know what is in store. GUTS/PIT/DONATIONS/RECRUETING/VOLUNTEERING..ETC..
To be honest, I don't think my husband even really has any real intrest in finding out anythnig much and don't think he is aware of the long and bumpy road he is taking. This is NOT like my husband! I am going to ask point blank questions about the MONEY, the I-group leadership..the program..the hirerarchy. Either way, no mater how he answers, SOMEONE was not forthright and it wasn't ME! Either he or MKP will be made accountable for the deception. If he can't answer questions about the money (where it goes/non-profit statis) or if he doesn't even know what the NEXT course(s) is going to be.. well, that will say a lot to the therapist. My husband is very money concious. He figures out his retirement to-the-penny. Then I will move on to all the secret stuff that I found out on the web. I will ask if it is right to lie (withold the truth) in a marraige. I will talk about UNLISCENSED men doing deep regression therapy and how they are unaccountable, the sleep deprivation, etc.. dancing naked.. then I will bring up the conformity. As Umbrrealla said..Group Think.
Of course, I probably won't get this all in tonight..but it's a start.
Don't worry..FIRST I WILL ASK IF THE THERAPIST IS A NEW WARRIOR!! :lol:
