Kaia Ra has a dizzying number of corporations and trademarks. One of her newest companies is Bejeweled in Sovereignty, LLC, formed in Wyoming. Her law firm is based in Utah and they work nation wide. They helped her set this newest company up. She claims that the jewelry is "hand carved" but she does not give the full necessary details to back that claim. She does mention a "

QuoteCondoms "block the energy,” he says, and he prefers not to use them. Joyner provides his STD test results to prospective clients, who are asked to disclose any STDs in a signed consent form prior to their first session. So dangerous.

Trinity is still at it. He's married with children now and uses that fact as part of his ongoing sales and branding. He says that his Ayahuasca Healings venture in USA never did earn DEA permission. That they have not heard from the DEA since November 2016. Trinity de Guzman penned a lengthy "humble confession". It's b.s. He pretends to apologize to the people that he h

I'm gonna quibble with this part: QuoteYou'd have to be an IDIOT to think LGATs are anything but a cult! I was not an idiot when I got pulled into LGATs and destructive cult groups. I did not know how to evaluate coercive persuasion and stay clear of it. And I may be misunderstanding you. :) That said, this fundraising campaign by Jo Englesson is atrocious. Ideally she w

As a thought experiment I imagined myself to be a woman, in a time of life transition, with access to money (or at least credit cards). Also as someone who finds Kaia Ra charismatic. My initial outlay would be about $182.00 for book, keycode initiations, and access to recordings of past events. I'd take part in the monthly prayer collective and be active in the social media groups.

Kaia Ra keeps her followers busy. There are videos to watch, books to read, workshops to attend, and special jewelry to buy. She regularly churns out new revelations and visions. She provides many many ways for people to give her money. In her videos she sometimes talks rather quickly and her rhetoric could make the listener dizzy. New Age beliefs and loaded language are packed into each se

Kaia Ra/ Colleen Anne Santoro is the founder of a channeling group. She says she is the oracle for her "Sophia Dragon Tribe". Much of what she is doing is akin to past channeling groups, like the ones detailed here: "Ascended Masters", an emphasis on Mount Shasta, "Mystery School" - all with her own spin. She has updated, modernized, and glamorized channeling. He

You are so right Corboy. The Spezzanos do the trash talk every which way they can. While encouraging followers to call them "Uncle" and "Mom". Anyone who complains is told they are "overly judgemental" and that they have parent issues that they need to heal by taking more classes. One of Chuck's claims is that he can teach men to think differently in

Chuck Spezzano has several books out, including "What Men Don't Know About Sex-- That Women Could Teach Them". This book is horrible. It includes an incredibly offensive rape "joke" that includes the death of the woman victim who was assaulted while in a coma. According to the Spezzanos, independence is bad. We are supposed to be interdependent and do as they say.

QuoteRussia has lots of experience in media censorship. So perhaps it is logical that Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI-2) hires an agent of the Russian government as a ‘consultant’ to keep Hawaii media under control. But Gabbard’s consultant, Chris Cooper of the Potomac Square Group, is no ordinary Russian agent. Cooper is allegedly one of seven identified as being at the center of illegal Russian lo

Unfortunately, I believe Trinity de Guzman and Ayahuasca Healings have gotten worse. More dangerous. Earlier in this thread there has been some discussion of Dylan Guss. At one time, he seemed to know that he needed to break away from AH. Now he is once again fully integrated into the group, given the title "the bridger of worlds". He is a young man and in the past has been drastical

The LGAT Psychology of Vision run by Chuck and Lency Spezzano also use staring techniques.
