Mr or Ms "Anticult." I need to correct a few mistakes and assumptions you've presented. I did not "lie" about not offering courses because as of the time I posted in that forum (Feb 2009), we did not offer any.

QuoteSandmanFrom the messages at YouTube, which seems to be the main recruiting ground for this fledgling organisation, there are already some disgruntled former subscribers.

Hello, I'm one of the moderators on the Desteni forum, and I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about th
