Certainly quite a character, a lot of energy! I won't try to pass judgement on her own ideas of herself but she's definitely got a point & cuts through his BS, she's probably more awakened to truth (clarity) than anyone else in the room in this sense. When someone was fantasising about how beautiful India was I pointed out this same (male dominated) culture & lawlessness

Great article Sahara, which is very relevant. To quote it again for others: Dr. Cath defined a cult as a group of people joined together by a common ideological system fostered by a charismatic leader, where, he said, ''the expectation is that they can transcend the imperfections and finitude of life.'' He said: ''Often they set up a we-they philosophy: We have t

Another strange case (which I'm not sure if it's been covered) was of Sabrina Harmes, who was last seen "in a confused state" before going missing when not returning from a Mooji gathering in Rishikesh (2016). She was found some days later. “Allegedly she was found without clothes in Rishikesh. She had some marks of injury on her legs", "appearing mentally dis

Gaga, It sounds like you’ve learnt some valuable lessons, maybe this experience has taught you a lot & in the end pushed you in the direction you sought. These things can be funny, you might only know you’ve been on a journey once you arrive. There’s nobody that can give us anything in this life, we have to reach out ourselves, when we learn to take responsibility for our lives & emotio

Having a business plan which involves hundreds of people flying in from all over the world to share a room with him isn’t a great idea with covid & him having diabetes, but there’s also a part of me which thinks this couldn’t have come sooner for him. He probably feels a lot safer now with less avenues of attack open to media outlets etc, but still won't know exactly where his ship is le

Slightly off topic but for those interested in understanding the efficacy of these techniques, Derren Brown is a bit of a master. I’m no expert on the subject but will share my take on this (interesting) video, to demonstrate & demystify somewhat. Derren opens by asking for something the participant will most likely be happy to give (directions), it's his initial way into building

Thanks for reposting that. I've noted similar things with his speech patterns, and his "invitation" being a trance induction routine. Tony used to have an almost middle class British accent, someone in the comments here notes he assimilated Papaji, this seems like a fairly accurate opinion. Tony's earlier videos were of this assimilated style, but over time his spee

Sorry I don't have a facebook account but please feel free to repost. Just putting that out there for anyone who wishes to listen, it's possible for anyone to verify my claims for themselves with some research. I'm not asking anyone to blindly listen to what a random someone on the internet has to say, there's been enough of that going on already!

Has anyone studied Tony’s routines? He uses some common Ericksonian hypnotherapy techniques for which there are tutorials on youtube, thankfully for research purposes Tony isn't very creative & wholly lacks originality. He likes the confusion technique. Tony’s tongue twisters are usually punctuated by the suggestion “you must drop it all”, or something along those lines. It’s quite
