From Timothy Conway's website. The description of Karl Renz, a Pooja spin-off may ring a bell. Am posting this not to distract into discussions of the complexities of advaita, but for a close examination of the tricks utilized by too many satsang teachers -- a project that our message board is well equipped to tangle with. Do these people all go to the same training camp? To g

Years back a message board participant named The Anticult taught us how to examine use of "weird stories". Hypnotic eyes, false intimacy The Anticult also identified use of Scarcity Marketing as a recruitment technique. Today many gurus are in isolation due to covid virus with no access to long time or new disciples. THey can easily use this technique. Here is A

Hmm about fish and fishing. Lots of cultural associations here. We speak of "fishing for praise" and "fishing for compliments." Fish are eaten. Fish get caught. Fish are hunted. Fish are sold. In the old days, fisherfolk put their captured fish in a *basket* known as a creel. In the old days, fish were carried in baskets and sold in the market, carried home from the

If you are vulnerable to abuse via your Twitter account, study up on a new moderation feature that has been added to Twitter. Twitter now lets you disable replies. It could be its best change yet. Twitter’s new reply moderation tool could be a game changer for victims of harassment.

In areas where weather gets hot, guests must be warned about dehydration, how often to drink water and when. On AIDS Lifecycle events participants and road crew members are taught how to prevent dehydration and how to identify whether someone may be dehydrated.

QuoteIn 2008, as economic crisis swept across Europe, Peter knew his moment had arrived. Since before German reunification, he’d been a Trottel, a Depp, a Versager: a loser. Born in East Germany in 1965, he was a friendless introvert with an alcoholic father and an overbearing mother who made him clean his plate to the point of vomiting. Peter wanted to become a teacher, but his grades were too p

I’ve spent 12 weeks attending this two-hour Sunday morning service.

Pema Chödrön on Trungpa in 2011: “I Can’t Answer the Relative Questions” QuoteChödrön’s “I don’t know” carries a further charge. Arguably, a large part of her popularity comes from her ability to poetically mobilize the language that values personal vulnerability (recently made more popular by Brené Brown and others) to reinforce a doctrinal belief not just in the unknowability of “relativ

Resilient has given excellent advice. Information about the abuse behavior perpetrated by Pema Chodron's guru, Chogyam Trungpa, can be hard to find online because Trungpa has a large body of loyal students who work hard to bury this information online. To learn whether any teacher or guru has generated abuse complaints, you need to use negative thinking, not avoid it - you have to play d

Allalong, this would be a great thread topic - soft cults. I am very sorry to say that though 12 Step groups are not supposed to be cults (The 12 Traditions were developed as a way to prevent this sort of thing), the set up is readily exploitable by power-trippers. Sexual predators who hunt at 12 Step meetings are nicknamed 13th Steppers and new persons should be warned that these people
