I have close family and friends who went through the highest levels of Impact Trainings. Some also went through the highest levels of Mormonism. I’ve seen the residue, pain and fallout of both organizations at my doorstep and in my walls. I was born LDS, indoctrinated from birth, completed a two year mission, attended temple sessions frequently, had multiple callings/responsibilities, and got out

ROZZANNE, I really like your post. I empathize and really hope your family member can get out of that. Although many cults use the same concepts, the "brought it on themselves because of thinking too negative" sounds a lot like the Law of Attraction bull shit from The Secret. Basically another new age strategy to get control of the uncontrollable and put excess blame and shame

Hello DisiectiPoetae, Regarding your two key points, Dr. Phil is a PhD in clinical psychology, he is a professional in the mental health field, and yet I'd rather go to an alcoholic monkey throwing green feces before that nutjob McGraw any day. Social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, MD, PhD, those titles mean relatively nothing besides showing how much schooling the per

Impact's website has a new makeover, looks a little more crisp and organized..........like shit in a tux. It's really interesting to see the urgency tactics they use to get people in there. "Limited Seating", "Waiting List" and now even an unbelievable offer of "2 for 1 Quest Special!When you register for the Quest Training, sign up a friend for FREE!"

Not to be an obtuse stickler, but this thread had well over 100,000 views before the attacks on the cult education site. My guess is that this thread has been viewed at least 160,000 times. On a different note, it's hilarious to type "Impact Trainings" in Google and do an Image search, where one will find ExImpact's "I of Sauron" at the beginning. =)

Youtube Impact traffic is growing a little, who cares, right? But I found this one interesting: I noticed: 1. The staff, part of the cult's symbolic hogwash 2. The comments below the video sound like a broken record, programming at it's worst best. 3. The title, very indicating of what Impact focuses on, yet ironically what it takes away 4. The way he re

Hopeful Soul said: "My points are: Impact divides families, this is anti-LDS purpose and doctrine; the Church is not, in the least, impotent in countering such" The LDS, just like Impact, encourage people entering the church to forsake anything that will hinder them to progress in the organization. One's family members, including spouses and children, are not exempt. LDS miss

Hey Ali. : ) Ali: So interesting how closed off people truly become when going through Impact. I thought I was more open but it was actually the opposite. It's almost like I developed mental tunnel "vision." Indeed, I think that's what stuck out to me most about Steve's post. The "internet stranger" is symbolic to me of the us vs. them mentality....

Impact's home site has the video "impact serves the world". Playing twister with children and transforming into elves are apparently some good things Impact is doing. I am not saying that the people involved in the service don't have an intent to help or didn't do any good. However, let's be honest, the video's design is to convince potential trainees that Impac

There were some posts last month on Impact's online testimonial site: This type of thing may be a challenge or an assignment from the trainers to entry level trainees, to write about their ideal world, Impact style.

Under personal profiles on zoominfo (do a person search instead of a business search), Sally Berger is described as a &quot;Powerful Facilitator&quot;.

Moderator Corboy, I am trying to make other correlations on how an LGAT atmosphere may pervert regular human behaviors and emotions. Would you say the stifling of a sincere, well-intentioned belly laugh is to Humor as Love-Bombing (not 100% sure what that is) is to Love, in the LGAT? Or grief and sorrow is to Being a Victim as critical thinking is to being an Arsewipe (or Interrupter) in
