So sorry to hear about your son. My husband and I were in a cult for a long time and what you describe here is similar to how we behaved. We only know about Mamas through others who have lost a close friend to this place. If people have been involved in a group like this they may recognize signs of one in the descriptions on the Mamas website. There are many support systems for famlies

To keep this record updated, here's a 2011 video of Mary Miller, cult leader of Gentle Wind Project, now morphed into "I-Ching Systems." "Mary Miller from the 2011 GIN Family Reunion Event in the Bahamas." Allows herself to be called "Doctor" without credentials, sports new age workshop garb for aging gurus, still delivers the same tired old talk, and

Thanks for the Youtube link. Cynthia Knorr-Mulder, who "Moe" Miller surely coerced into doing this low quality video, has been a Gentle Wind Project (AKA many other names) follower for years.

Quotecorboy I wanted to correct my earlier writing so as to make clear that it is not an easy matter to take ones power back after having had ones own inner life taken over and co-opted. I was worried when I re-read my old essay and wrote in a seemingly easy manner to take ones power back. It has been a few years and I have discovered this is much harder than I ever recognized at the time.

Quotecorboy Repeat: If people have been subliminally conditioned to feel protective, even that they have the responsibility of nurturing and parenting the person or the process that has instilled shame and self distrust, the harder it will be to question that or associate with others who want to question it.

Though the Miller Family (Gentle Wind Project) is pushing their new book "Caught in the Act of Helping" on the "Life Insights" website, they are more likely to be known by Family Systems Research Group or FSRG. They've also co-opted the I-Ching name for their products. People often come to the former members' website, Wind of Changes, after searching for: FSRG

Over the past months we've heard from people who have attended the Millers' new "FSRG" seminars (Family Systems Research Group). The Millers have possibly now moved from Maine and NH to central MA, though seminars have been offered in various states. They don't advertise on the Internet, nor does the so-called "FSRG" have a website. More about Family Syste

Since we last posted here, Gentle Wind Project and the GWP leaders -- the Millers -- signed a Consent Decree with the Maine Attorney General, which put their "nonprofit" out of business in Maine, turned over all GWP assets to the Attorney General, and set up a system to provide refunds to people who purchased GWP "healing" products.
