I thought I had posted this before but cannot find it. A student at my alma mater was blogging about his hot yoga "journey" and throughout the entries, he made mention of his declining use of water in class. His instructor was teaching some pretty hardcore mind-over-matter stuff about how people psych themselves up to believe they need things - including water in hot yoga classes.

Define lazy or explain why you think you're lazy, please. I have the sneaking suspicion you are not. Why not volunteer for a nonprofit? Remember, many of the people you met at Landmark are trying to comply to Landmark's rules and not necessarily trying to support you in getting your life together. They just don't want to be humiliated by Landmark if they get caught thinking

Good Enough, Great stuff. I've been reading about placebo effect on sciencebasedmedicine.org. The National Committee on Complementary and Alternative Medicine is spinning the poor outcomes of their tax-payer funded research as "The Power of Placebo" and people are falling for it. Health and lifestyle coaches, naturopaths, armchair nutritionists on health forums have thinly

My former yoga instructor didn't start preaching and holding Sunday kirtans while she was renting space in a church to hold classes. When she opened her own studio, everything went to hell in a handbasket. I dropped out, tired of her preaching and pseudopsychoanalysis. The dangerous thing she did, IMO, was suggest that fear of doing certain poses or not wanting to "go past your edge&

She's going to use mind-fvcking techniques on you and your husband if she is up to her eyeballs in Landmark. You might feel some relief and empowerment, but it will all be manipulated. She'll ignore true issues by blaming every last thing on rackets, integrity, responsibility (Landmark's version where you're responsible for everything), and you trying to look good. Been the

My feeling is that most professionals don't know the extent of infiltration by Byron Katie and her wannabes. More and more universities and teaching hospitals are offering integrative therapies (read - unvalidated) training. NCCAM (Natl Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) is spending billions of taxpayers' dollars to carry out poorly designed studies and promote woo

Dr. Monasterio, Thank you for posting your review of A Thousand Names for Joy here. It is so important that professionals speak up and explain to people what kind of wool Katie is actually pulling over the eyes of unsuspecting readers and clients. So many untrained "therapists" are ripping off vulnerable people and doing a lot of harm in the process (see post about one grad of

NIWH grade Gina Lake is offering a series of courses on quieting the mind, with material derived from Tolle and Katie.

While there are likely many, many people who decide to forego conventional medical treatment for serious diseases and instead turn to “woo”, there still is little to suggest that Steve Jobs hastened his demise by “turning to alternatives” for nine months.

Does anyone have any resources for people who survive and get out of abusive relationships? An acquaintance of mine is a woman who was beaten down, physically, sexually, emotionally and spiritually for many years.

Well, like other narcissists, he explains how all the churches are "lost" and that they do not understand the "word" like he does. The crazy naturopath who is the reason I found this board basically said the same thing about the entire medical profession. They all go to the same training camp.

The last day of the Forum, when everyone is feeling manufactured warm and fuzzy feelings, the leader winds things up by talking about the importance of relationships and that love is all that is important. Funny, how the forum is about deception.

Penelope, I'm experiencing the same BS in a program that is supposed to be "science-based". It started off based in basic science but then the woo slowly crept in. This program has infiltrated its way into Harvard Med School, which, of course, to the program facilitators means it is credible.

Former Dept of Pathology Chief at a NY Hospital wrote this, and I agree: "It is important to recognize that when physicists like Heisenberg, Wheeler, and Schrödinger explored the fields of uncertainty in quantum systems, they did so from scientific and enlightened philosophic standpoints.

Unfortunately, referring clients to LGATS or reading material penned by the likes of Byron Katie and Ekart Tolle is rampant. The therapist I went to in the aftermath of my Landmarkian doctor was an est grad (she later posted this information on her website as part of her CV) and the first reading material she gave me was BK. At the time, I did not know how pervasive LGATs were and thought my expe
