Mariac, I think it may be more helpful if I respond to your messages publicly. I made it clear way back on this forum that I was briefly a client of Christopher Hansard and that he tried to recruit me as an ‘apprentice’. Apart from that everything else I know is a consequence of my being very well networked. Your story sounds sadly familiar. It is not clear when you last went to Hansard for tr

Sparrow ‘in the land of the blind the one eyed man is king’. The martial arts teacher you refer to was much younger and, perhaps, more impressionable when he met Hansard. If you are in the martial arts scene you could ask the opinion of his teacher in California who met and quickly rejected Hansard as a fraud. Hansard met similar rejection from various skilled martial artists he approached as

Quoterrmoderatorgondolf: You seem to largely defend Hansard. And you repeatedly attempt to do so by claiming his methods somehow work, that people should be forgiving in some way, etc. etc. You also spend quite a bit of time attacking Jeff Bowe, who is the most outspoken critic of Hansard on this thread. The allegations against Hansard are very serious. And it appears he is a fraud

It would seem from the appearance of that Christopher Hansard is desperate to be out in the world. I notice that he is promoting books by a well-known charlatan who goes by the same name so I assume that they are one and the same person. Unfortunately, as of 27 January 2008, Christopher Hansard tells us nothing about himself apart from his pompous quasi-spiritual puffing. On 27 Janu

No, I don't know any more about McDowell. His Nexial Entertainment site is very funny. I'm sorry that I mentioned the Rinpoche as googling his name now brings up this forum. My apologies for that. As I have said, I am sure that the links are simply there to lend credibility. Linking to Hansard is probably good for ratings these days even if his websites have nothing to say anymore.

Well spotted Josey. The website was set up in August by Paul McDowell of Nexial Entertainment in Wisconsin, USA. It supports the work of Padma Gonpo Rinpoche who is said to be a Tibetan teacher of Bon. It looks a bit cheesy to me. Can’t be Hansard as he was always trying for classy. The link is probably random as bonmedicine.com is a bit of a dead dog.

I found this posted on the UK Skeptics forum. I guess it would not have been permitted here at Rick Ross. I hope like me you find it as amusing as it is sad. The poster calls himself Davron.

Thank you, Cranial, for that very important information. Thank you Bec for your contribution. You might like to contact ‘Witness’ as every voice helps. You can email them or call the helpline on 08454 500 300 As we see Christopher Hansard and his backers continue without remorse. Judging from the ‘Defend Christopher Hansard Petition’ he has 35 clients supporting his new venture.

A forum is being organised in London for anyone who has had direct experience of abuse in any form from Christopher Hansard. If you would like to attend please contact me using the private messaging service on this forum. I notice that the petition supporting the man has stalled at 34 signatories. Oops.

Mr. Nelson, Ms. Pulver, Ms Hare, Mr. Lawson, Mr. Willard, and Ms. Wright are all individuals who had close working relationships with Christopher of some kind, and were indeed responding to the universal themes present in what he was presenting.

Well, what do you know? Now Tsering Damchog and Tsevegar Rimpoche have added their names to the 'Defend Christopher Hansard' petition and they are pissed at him too. That's four mysterious characters who were once singing Hansard's praises on Amazon and now are expressing their deep disappointment in the man - and on the wrong petition.

I found that to be a very educative exchange. Thank you rmoderator and farewell Frank Black. Has everyone noticed that www.kum-nye.org and www.bonmedicine.co.uk have been taken down from the Internet? Have you also noticed that www.bonmedicine.com is now only concerned with selling books? There is nothing of Christopher Hansard’s autobiography. Now why would Christopher Hansard remove h

If you check out the ‘defend Christopher Hansard’ petition you will find three signatories who comments indicate that they are signing the wrong petition. What is more interesting is that two of them, Professor Sonam Amdongyapa of Vienna and Dorjong Rimpoche of Nepal were previously writing glowing reviews of Hansard’s books on Amazon. According to Jeffrey Bowe these are fictitious characte

That petition seems like a very good idea to me. I hope they will take it to the police and local authorities as promised. They might even take it to ‘Witness’. I’m sure all investigations will be dropped now that we know that: ‘Christopher Hansard is taking the lessons from his own failings and he is making change in his life. Real change and like any of us, he should be afforded the grace to

Clearly in the case of people like Frank Black the person to turn to for information on treatment would be the practitioner himself. We should expect any decent medical practitioner to keep case-notes including diagnosis, treatment plans, medication and responses. I am glad to see that once again the ex-apprentices have rallied to support concerned clients. Please note that ‘Witness’ may be ab

It has already been mentioned that Hansard had a certificate from an Acupuncture school in Sri Lanka. They offer quick correspondence courses in acupuncture. Go there and you too can be a Master of Acupuncture in a few weeks. However, like Hansard you will not be able to join the Acupuncture Council in the UK. There is also plenty of information on acupuncture available in some extremely good

Sorry to disturb your train of thought Gondolf but we are talking about Christopher Hansard here. He’s the one who claims an extraordinary training in medicine and charges a lot of money to sick people for access to his medicine. He’s the one who makes a habit of sexually abusing women under the guise of teaching and/or treating them. Which part of his representation of himself would you sugge

Thanks James. Can I suggest on the basis of that sad news that we try to work with Witness? They are entirely independent and familiar with the Christopher Hansard mode of operation.
