More proof that James Arthur Ray did in fact have very extensive NLP training in all of the various NLP tech, like group hypnosis, persuasion, trance induction, nested loops, embedded metaphors and all the NLP seminar techniques. The brazen lies from the NLPers on this issue are disgusting, but are to be expected as standard procedure, no surprises there. They just want to misdirect the "st

One interesting thing from Nightline, is that they do talk about James Ray's past as a telemarketer and salesman. Its a classic story. Professional salespeople take all sorts of courses and trainings about improving their sales skills, and closing skills, negotiating, and persuasion. So they can make more money. There are many books and seminars on this subject. There are also many

Again, lots of good points in the post by "buffman". Its certainly an error to project James Rays "intent" as being something positive for people at large. That is his salespitch, he is mainly in it for his own Ego and mansion, Rolex, cars, Ego... Of course, every LGAT Guru is surrounded by brown-nosers trying to get his/her approval, so they tell the Guru what he wants

there were some posts in the past about Byron Katie and Skin Cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma Skin Cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma Byron Katie has used the "cancer story" as a motif, going back to her earliest books, and probably since the beginning. Its using the FEAR around a painful death, and working it into her Stories. So its not an accident, or random that she talks about CANCER

Hi Christa, The point you make is very important. "It's a shrewd, subtle bit of marketing that points to a great deal of ego inflation and a propensity for risk-taking". B-i-n-g-o and Bingo was his name-o. Its no accident that they made it sound like Byron Katie appeared at Harvard, that is the type of tricky advertising they do all the time. BK always tries to make it

It is literally not possible to not have a story. Having no story, is a story, just a different story. All Byron Katie does is literally tell hypnotic stories with embedded metaphors. That's all she does. So she must get enormous pleasure from telling everyone to step outside of their stories, to be without a story, when all she does is hypnotize them with her stories. It must be an

here is a couple more adventures into alleged Ex-Siddha Yoga. Stuart Resnick and Dan Shaw back in 1997 on usenet. And Carol Skolnick comments on Siddha Yoga on the Marta Szabo blog. You may notice that Carol writes in "stories" and uses embedded metaphors. What is she saying? Why does she write like that? (its a tech). Then Carol Skolnick gives a Masterclass on Love

Quotequestion ladyFascinating analysis Anticult. What books or other sources do you recommend for learning more about these types of techniques? I would imagine that if you can spot them, you are less likely to be taken in by them. This falls into the area of Ericksonian Hypnosis, and the use of hypnotic metaphor, and what are called Teaching Tales.They are stories, which sound like a normal s
