On the last page of this thread, (which I am trying to paste directly), here are some links pasted by Rick Ross about recovery.
Also, his book, "Cults Inside Out,"is great. He has a chapter on LGATS, and i have found that many of the manipulative techniques mentioned in the rest of the book also apply to LGATS. I would highly recommend reading it.
Also, if you scroll down just a couple of entries, you will see a very large thread about Lifespring. It has apparently harmed many. I know that people who were involved in Lifespring have posted fairly recently, and may be able to help with specifics.
LGATs ARE very hard on all types of relationships, and you may be able to show your boyfriend how it has hurt his relationships with you, and also his friends.
