I have a question for Daphne, if you feel folks are trashing her work, why are you in this forum anyway? I had a friend who ripped me off badly, this happened. There are many angles at which someone can view this, such as The Work, the bottomline however, is that I was hurt. People are being hurt by The Work in ways you refuse to understand, or possibly you can't understand. What i

JJ I agree with you. That is a point I made early on, although not as eloquently as you do here: JJ: QuoteJJFirst of all, I want to say that I resent the implication that those of us who attended her school are "gullible, insanely stupid, mentally ill", blammo. I realize that you are talking about your family member, but you sure make it sound like everyone there is the same way.

I have bought the Sedona Method twice! I can't believe all the money I have spent...you name I have tried it over the years. And then I started working on getting back into my body..feeling it...somatically. I have done a lot in this regard, Somatic Experiencing, cranial sacral, continuum. What that has brought me is that I now understand dissoccation in my body and my body just won'

I know that you are sincere. There are far too many people who have done The Work very sincerely and who have seen through this whole deal. You are not aware of what happens to you or your brain as you continue giving your power away to the four questions and the answers. There is a lot of help that comes at first in the form of relief, but I can tell you that most people who stick with thi

I had a friend turned Spiritual teacher who "helped" me for a while or so it seemed, I was happier, I was more of a lot things, UNTIL I saw there was a control going on, and I was burnt pretty badly taking me years of therapy. So what was wrong with the help she gave me? It is was comes afterwards. If you have someone who helps you and the end kills you, what is wrong with that?

Hi Solea Glad you found this forum. You sound a lot like me and so many of us. I think a bigger issue is one of Authority. The first time I had my "new age" bubble busted was about 5 years when I read The Guru Papers. It is a very good read and might answer a lot of your questions (but no final answer for sure :-). The issue of authority is a big one, and if we were not looking

QuoteThe AnticultI'll just throw out a few clarifications. ... The FACT is that the Byron Katie Hotline is extremely dangerous. Byron Katie does NOT endorse it. She even says she knows nothing about these people. Anticult, a very logical question why would anyone have people on a hotline on their site, using their technique, if they don't endorse them? It is rather contradictor

You know, Moderator, I just had an insight again. I think that non-trolls like me that can go on about these things don't realize that "discussing" what doesn't matter, whether PHd's are good or not for example, is all irrelevant, and it keeps us for seeing what needs to be seen. Keeping to the point seems a good "rule". And since some of us maybe needing to

Is BK sincere is a question I too have had. I think asking it is something logical especially to someone who has little experience with BK. Frankly, though, Screddy, it is irrelevant as to whether BK is sincere or if she is the Madonna :-) what is important is what is occurring and the amount of dissasociation alone that comes from doing The Work is a huge damage and that I can tell you person

QuoteThe Anticult.... Byron Katie is one of the most damaging people out there in the New Age, because her audience seems to have no idea of anything she is doing. How can that be? How can people not see what she is doing, its so flagrant? She is doing much of it right out in the open, but people are not paying attention. This seems to be due to her Targeting and blinding her target audi

Wow, it is true that "innocent" folks who think The work helps etc. can be more dangerous. There go I but for the grace of ?? And yes, it is true we have to vent anger. I shouldn't take it personally :-) Could be true about Tolle, who knows. But what this whole thread has brought home to me, is that to try to find the "good" in people like this can be dangerous

Frankly there is no defense for what BK's school does or any other LGAT. I agree with this. In a effort to possibly help understand where exscientolgy kid is coming from, I have a very good friend is an x--scientologist. I mean really, because I went to their course for a few months and there is no way I could buy into it. But my friend, many years ago, went all the way through. It has

Has anyone read the Guru Papers ? This was a book I found years ago and it was the beginning of my coming out of my New Age delusion. The reality is though, I have been in this surrender to Authority mind set for all my life. Starting with my parents out of necessity. I am going through an even bigger unraveling than I was before now understanding how we give our power away and how ready we a

Hi RB, I like what you wrote. Very unbias. I have noticed the idiot and angry words used before on people who can fall for these things. I guess it's time for me to share a little bit of my experience and why I know that Katie and Eckart can be dangerous, as much, oh my god, and this is the truth that I like them and don't believe for a moment that they are doing this malicio

Thanks for the welcome! I am very glad to find this board again. I am remembering now having found it years ago. Amazing how we forget :-) As I read more on this board, I feel strongly to say again, that we can not know what is in other people. I have a friend who has been a TM teacher most of his adult life, and probably deluded as well. He lives for TM, doe he know that TM can be harm

I felt The Work was helping and even revisited several times. I have shared it with others feeling that it was helping me. When someone is brain-washed, no matter to what degree their delusion, they think they are doing the right thing. Makes me very hesitate to ever judge another, as if I can know what is in their hearts. I was in the TM movement for 7 years and shared that very well meaning

Hi...well, I never went to the School, but have tempted over the last years. I have visited and re-visited BK's work and this last time, 5th time I think, at first I went into it and could feel some relief from my "insane thinking". I am no longer comfortable with being disassociated from my body, nor thinking or believing I am not body, yet I have tried this time around because
