Here is another tip off that something is exploitative:
LGATs often require subjects to sign away their right to sue/mediate
for damages in event they incur harm during the seminar or workshop.
If they shove a form at you, do not sign it. Take it home
and go online, and see if other groups with bad raps
use the same paperwork.
The Anticult, a member of this discussion forum, first drew our
attention to this important point.
Most LGATs claim to teach you are responsible for your life.
Yet via these forms, the LGATs refuse to admit responsiblity
for the power they claim to possess.
No ethical physician requires patients to sign such forms.
Final tip: always keep control over your transportation, your phone,
keys, watch and laptop. Do not give in to pleas that you do a
carpool. If you want to leave and the others insist on staying,
you're stuck -- you want to get out of Dodge and you dont have a
Use your own car, dont let anyone guilt you into carsharing, keep the
keys, and take care to park where you will not be boxed in by other
An additional tip: never discontinue drugs you are accustomed to taking.
That includes caffiene. Take caffiene tablets with you just in case
they refuse to provide caffienated beverages -- something most of us
use to start the day.
Caffiene withdrawal can be hellish -- you dont want to inflict this
on yourself AND have possible LGAT tech piled on top of of you as well.
