Its not known if this is actually the person stated, or someone else. But for the person stated, they are another self-proclaimed "NLP expert" in persuasion. Its another in a long line of Tony Robbins clones. The front page of their website is literally a paste/copy of the Tony Robbins material, using Questions with presuppositions to pace and lead those who are reading it. So in

Long ago, someone counted all the Eckhart Tolle products, and there were dozens of them. Now there are more than that, there look to be hundreds. And ET also is selling "retreats" which are meant to lure people to locations for that, where the upselling continues. ET is selling almost as many things as Walmart, and more than McDonalds! McDonalds only sells a few dozen things, Eckha

There are other threads going into great detail about the SCAMOLAS being run by Eckhart Tolle. The guys a salesman. and its false about the ET events. He has events, but not as many live events as BK, because obviously ET doesn't like "people" in the personal sense. He wants to set up a detached system, where you buy his DVD's and watch ET-TV as a group, so those are o

Frankly, this thread was reading as a satire! Just reading the text from Swami...makes one go into a Trance...now...if you can make it through the paragraphs. Its the same thing being sold by Eckhart Tolle and about a million other Swamis, literally. Bad news folks, just detaching from reality and going into a Trance might feel good for a moment of release, but you are opening yourself up

There is a book by Guy Finley called The Essential Laws of Fearless Living. They even have an extremely slick and highly manipulative website. www.essentiallaws.org just full of all sorts of sales and marketing techniques. They even offer "152 FREE GIFTS". These folks know what they are doing, in terms of internet marketing and the psychology of sales. The book open with a list I

dropped into a major bookstore...Eckhart Tolle has more than 10 different products taking up an entire shelf. Salesman Speaks. That guy is a real old school huckster. Byron Katie has a new book called, Who Would You Be Without Your Story? they have edited it into a dialogue format, which is very crafty. When people read that, its more indirect and suggestive, and they don't realize

In the banned Byron Katie book...Losing The Moon...(very important book, which is why it was shredded)... ...there are links between Byron Katie and a Guru in Germany named Isaac Shapiro. Byron Katie: "Isaac Shapiro - He is my friend, I am his." One has to wonder if his organization is involved with the Byron Katie LGAT seminar tour in GErmany and Europe? Isaac Shapiro...one w

"csp" would have been banished, shunned, uninvited from a Eckhart Tolle Group long ago. In those groups, you follow Tolle's "format", so he can "reformat" your brain. - 20 minutes of silence, puts you into a very Deep Hypnotic Trance. - then you watch Eckhart Tolle on the bigscreen TV for 90 minutes, and that goes very deep, as you are in a Trance. - then

Anyone who has studied NLP can instantly see that Byron Katie is doing a lot of NLP and hypnotic techniques, in her own style. But what will blow your mind if you look into her, is that she is one of the most deceptive liars ever to come out of the NLP field, and that is saying a lot. Byron Katie denies knowing anything about NLP, and says she became Enlightened by magic one-day in a half-way h

Hi Sparky, yeah I should be more careful in my terminology. "Trance" is a technical term in Ericksonian Hypnosis and NLP, which has a very different meaning than the word we use in common speech. (Trance basically means 'inward focussed attention' in that field). Its better to use the term Hypnosis and post-hypnotic suggestions. But the Suggestions implanted during the wa

Actually, I read the text about LSD before and posted it, where Tolle said he took LSD, and how it was similar, yet also different. So what? LSD trips are always different, some good, some bad. Its a dangerous drug. But what Eckhart Tolle is describing is a basic Trance state, known by various names including hypnosis. Most people can experience these Trance states quite easily, and even hav

Eckhart Tolle did admit to taking LSD, and he said it was SIMILAR to how he allegedly experiences the world, but not as good. (again no proof, just claims without proof). Some people are highly imaginative, and can easily go into deep hypnotic Trance states, and you can imagine anything you want. Its called Imagination and Visualization. Not that profound. You do it every night...its called d

another ludicrous thing about Eckhart Tolle, is he, and his people, say that he is not running a New Age religion, or any type of personality cult. Well, that is factually FALSE on both counts. Eckhart Tolle is literally running a personality cult around himself and his writings and products, as well as running a highly organized distributed, decentralized type of New Age "church"

I made a post about Eckhart Tolle Hypnotist. That is actually very revealing about Eckhart Tolle. It appears Tolle planned and created the oversold ticket and seating problems on purpose, to trigger emotions in people, and then use that against them to make them feel NEW AGER GUILT about not being enlightened like Tolle says he is.

It just occurred to me how all this stuff ties together. Its basically all just a form of hypnotic and Trance autosuggestion. The primary thing all these things are, is the Conformation Bias. We remember things that seem to work, and forget those that don't. but in addition, New Thought is basically pure self-hypnosis, or autosuggestion, or Autogenic training, etc. Its putting

I'm not attacking Guruphiliac personally...I think its terrific he criticizes all of these Sri Sri Rama-lama Ding-Dong fraud Gurus. That's good. And its good he criticizes Eckhart Tolle, as the media has given Eckhart Tolle a free pass. But Byron Katie actually appears to be far worse than Eckhart Tolle, in terms of her methods and organization. Why is he so harsh on Tolle and so
