Re: The Wright Institute for Lifelong Learning?

These Wrights are terrible manipulators of their subjects' time, money and energy. I too know an otherwise very nice person who is deeply involved with this nonsense. The question above about "soft addiction" to seminars, etc. is right on. Wrights have an answer for every problem or challenge (weight loss, fix your credit, singles group, on and on.) It begs the question who can fall for this-but some do.
To Arizonerak: I think you will unfortunately find out Wright has a great scam. They obviously send their zealots after their closest friends, family, etc. If you refuse to participate or support, you are painted unsupportive and unreasonable. I cannot remember the exact jargon. Discussing with family seems to make sense, although in my experience that hasn't worked either.
These people are clearly despicable!
