Ah yes. Stever Robbins. NLP Trainer to wannabe cult leaders. And you better believe that advanced NLP Trainers have gone and carefully studied and NLP modeled (copied) the exact techniques used by the most successful (richest) cult leaders in the world. They study it systematically, and make their own private manuals. As once that have that kind of knowledge condensed, they can market it

@@walter1963 Please stay around these threads, if you can. There is a ton of hypno-NLP info here, but we need more. And name some names if you can! Stever Robbins has been named, he's a buddy of Byron Katie too. Tad James & Co have been named too. So naming names in the NLP-hypno world, while explaining their techniques is very important. There are hundreds of them out ther

Gotta totally disagree with that! Things have progressed by light-years since Houdini was dealing with cold-reader spiritualists. The LGAT seminar and NLP persuasion experts are now able to engineer how people make decisions in that seminar environment. They do that extremely carefully, just read their disclaimers where they talk about how everything done in the seminar is "voluntary"

The NLP for Dummies books don't go into the advanced persuasion aspects of NLP that are being used in these other areas. NLP has also modeled/copied SALES in great detail, and that is a separate study. They also fused that with conversational hypnosis and advanced language patterns. It can take YEARS of study and practice to figure that stuff out. By the way, as an aside, everyone can

Its an important link. Matthew B. James "says" he was doing spiritual training at age 5, and was exposed to Muktananda Siddha Yoga in childhood. Of course that would come from his parents and father Tad James who was one of the main people in NLP hypnosis in the early years. Many NLPers took the NLP modeling/copying tech, and applied it to "spiritual" pursuits. They would

Its interesting how many new agey belief systems always pathologize healthy direct psychological self-defense mechanisms, and seek to soften healthy boundaries, and make people more "accepting" of outrageous and bad behavior. Some of the direct rebukes of James Ray on Twitter are excellent, and are certainly extremely healthy. For example, the STFU response directed at James Ray, is di

That is totally correct, and it also applies to post-NLP, that is, people who do variants of NLP but call it another names, there are dozens of them. The NLPers in seminars get people hyped up to think they can do basically anything with their tech, and then sign them up to more expensive trainings. They take fairly naive and credulous people in the audience, and sell them on the idea that &quo

no, that post was up before seeing your post. That was a general comment about those who sell NLP for a living, and charge thousands and thousands for "trainings" in NLP, like Stever Robbins and professional NLPers at that level. Also local level NLP trainers, and those who claim NLP certification, with or without evidence. A person new to NLP may have had NLP reframed in their mi

It also gets so tiresome, to hear the same little games being played by the NLPers, year after year, trying to reframe NLP using persuasion tech derived from NLP, and related practices. They just do that to try and manipulate newbies, who are the only ones who are going to spend money anyway. There is a huge well-known industry of advanced covert persuasion tech that has been codified into mode

""If you can't embrace the dark you'll never dance in the light" James Ray is using metaphor pacing-leading in his Twitter-persuasion. He sets the metaphors up, and then moves them along to shape meaning and perception. James Ray has set himself up as "the light", and he suggests his followers to "dance in the light". He has framed his manslaugh

Well, not that Dave Lakhani needs a defense, as frankly criticism of his techniques would help his marketing to the target market that wants to learn to persuade and manipulate to the maximum degree possible, including "mind control" and creating a "cult following"...

One thing about Dave Lakhani, is at least he admits there is such a thing as advanced unconscious persuasion techniques. Even though he immediately tries to misdirect away from some of the most powerful techniques, at least he admits there are many dozens of techniques that are being used all over the place. Notice how people like Byron Katie, Stever Robbins, and many others will literally DE

Yes, that was modeling the NLP manipulative persuasion patterns copied from the written text of Alex Benzer. Of course we all agree that evidence is required. Michael Beckwith gives zero evidence for any of his extreme claims, like healing disease with his techniques. Its up to Beckwith and Benzer to provide the evidence, as they are the ones who are making the claims and the money. Those wh

@ chicky monkey Thanks for your report, it contains an enormous amount of important information. One of the most interesting things you said, is your BK roomate was an NLPer, who went back to be "STAFF". That is how it works.

You would have to wish that people would be about a million times more careful around these types of guys, and those like them.

By the way, in terms of the advanced hypnosis, ask Stever Robbins about it, he knows all about it. That's right Stever, he knows what its all about, Stever knows EXACTLY what Byron Katie does, he knows precisely what James Ray does, and all the rest of them. All they think about is their own payday, and too bad for the collateral damage, like peoples minds getting crushed. Also, the Sle

Another aspect of James Ray that has not been examined, and is being missed, is his use of LANGUAGE and METAPHORS. For example, he recently used this phrase.

And messing around with "grammar" is pretty much lesson #1 in advanced conversational hypnotherapy. Its a huge subject. But the first thing you learn is to shift tenses (past-present), and nouns, verbs, and to scramble it up. Some of it is to confuse the conscious mind, and trigger a transderivational search. They also use Transformational Grammar, Artfully Vague language patterns,

There is a tiny hope, that maybe a couple of the old NLP-hypno-persuasion people will come forward and write a detailed book for the general public, explaining all of the persuasion techniques being used on them. They could even make some decent money selling a book, that could help people see what is going on. And they don't even have to mention any specific names. But they are afraid
