Hello all, Has anyone heard of the MLM Prepaid Legal. I live in SoCal and three of my friends are caught up in it. One quite heavily. She is taking trips to Caribbean Islands that she cannot afford and is now almost completely associating with her new prepaid legal family. I was at a "party" at her house and the new friends are, of course, unlike any of her old friends in that their

Corboy, Thank you very much for all these references. Yes, it's sad but true what you say about boundary issues. The good teachers I've had in the past were excellent at gingerly dancing up to, but not intruding into their students boundaries. I'll be sure to check out the Chester book and read the Sharon Gans thread. Thanks again. JB

Hello all, I sure have been enjoying following the Byron Katie thread of late (especially the stuff about "curative fantasies" and how revering a person is an indicator for setting that person up as a guru). I started this separate thread because I used to take an acting workshop from a guy who billed himself as the anti-guru but once you got into his workshop, flipped into a scre

QuoteThe AntiCultI literally cannot stand Byron Katies voice anymore at this point, its like verbal waterboarding. "Verbal Waterboarding. This gets my vote for best metaphor/analogy (not sure what to call it but it made me laugh). Also, thanks to whoever posted info about David Burn's books. I think more than one of you did. I've got the "Feeling Good" paperback in m

I watched the video again, Byron Katie re Money, and wooo, I can totally see through her now. Thank goodness. I just watched a minute or two of this. My favorite bile inducing quip from BK: "motivation is fear". She expertly creates so much confusion in her interviewee/victim. Sigh.

As long as we're collecting names of people who are liberally spreading Byron Katie crapola around I'd like to throw this link out for addition to the long list previously posted. I attended a weekend workshop she facilitated. Basically it was an LGAT type sampler with the usual hypnotic regression to childhood "splits" as the culmination of a long weekend of being pro

QuoteRswintershttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbL3db2z_Ic Oh my gosh. This was hilarious. If it was not for the fact that I bought into this crap philosphy and destroyed my life by applying it. Wow. It's 8:30 a.m. where I am and I'm laughing my ass off. At the clip, not at you're having applied it and having your life ruined. I remember when The Secret first hit the LA a

Oh, my god! Forgive me, but I've been alternately laughing and cringing after reading the list of Jane Hardy's credentials. If she actually did go through all that training she must be the most jargon filled discombobulated new age sucker in history. I'm guessing she made at least some of it up. Either way, I'm wondering: "who falls for that". I mean it's one t

Yes. Thank you for pointing to that post. I read it and appreciate you putting the religious backdrop into perspective. As I recall, during my initial phone sessions with the "helper" there was never any mention of those lectures that dealt with Jesus, God, Lucifer, or any supernatural beliefs. It was all psych stuff. A few months into it, the casual mention of getting it right in "

Thanks for your response, Solea. I agree that it would be a high cost indeed if I enrolled in the four year program only to come out the other end as you described. Since I withdrew, I've gotten a phone call from the facilitator, offering me a free "exit session" to help with my closure. Fortunately, I don't feel the need for it. I still get emails with lectures attached an

Greetings, This is my first posting on this site. I spent a few months "working" with a Pathwork helper. I found him pretty well grounded in basic psych stuff. But over time his past lives/channeling worldview got in the way. It was subtle and I didn't notice how much I'd absorbed of that side of it until I "found" myself joining a bi-weekly group processing.
