yeah, if you read those threads, its very clear that HAI teaches people to conceal and lie to the "outside world" about what is going on in there. That is a common tactic in these groups, of course.
also, all these "levels" with these groups, just serve the purpose of repeat business, bring people back for more workshops. Again, a common structure to make more $$.
Its probable that people who are already in HAI, get gold-stars and are actively encouraged to bring in "fresh blood" to pay to attend workshops. Once a new guy gets a the HAI "high" from the group sex stuff, then many guys would get "addicted" and run there every weekend.
When you strip away the 1970's psychobabble, these sex groups make Vegas look tame, and cheap.
Nothing sells like sex, and these sex groups can make unbelievable amounts of money.
They have some connections with OneTaste with Nicole Daedone too.

...the founder, Nicole, and most of the rest of the group come from a community called Morehouse. She is a student of Dr. Victor Baranco who did some novel work in the area of sensuality research and cooperative living. ... They are similar to groups like the Human Awareness Institute (HAI).
