That is an incredible development. Someone in LMT 3 sent the attached screen shot to me from their Facebook Group, it is Impact's response to Ward getting arrested. I'm not sure if the attachment feature works yet or if it takes awhile to fully load (I have tried to add the file a few times already) but if it doesn't show up soon then I will try something else.

Hello friends, it has been a long time since I posted on this forum but I wanted to provide a few updates that I thought were meaningful. In 2007 I posted a ripoff report about the Impact Trainings that eventually made it to #2 on Google (directly under the company's own website). Apparently, the Ripoff Report now allows companies to pay $2,000 to have portions of a post redacted and for a

You're probably right about applying resistance. You would definitely know him best. The good news here is that he is not currently involved in a training series. Very few trainees attend Summit if they skip the session immediately following their Quest training. I'm not really qualified to give advice here but I do wish you luck and encourage you to stay strong in your conviction.

Hey suppabre, sorry to hear about the situation with your husband. Is he planning on attending summit? Quest is just the tip of the iceberg and odds are that things will get worse before they get better if he continues to take impact courses. The selfishness that you've observed is common with impact grads, separation from the program can often reverse these tendencies but convincing hi

Robert enrolled his entire immediate family into the Impact Trainings, and beleive me, they were all a mess.

I agree Glaucon, Hopeful Soul has continued (for years now) to be a shining example of "Poe's Law". “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humour, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing.”

Quotembartz462My Quest comrades are beginning Lift-Off soon and I am constantly getting emails or texts saying that they "deserve" to go to Lift-Off and asking people for money to pay their tuition. I find it rather humorous that they say they "deserve" something because it means that they are not "needy", but they still ask for money to pay their way through Lift-O

Hi mbartz, welcome to the thread. Apparently the individuals that run Impact haven't become any more ethical or enlightened since I knew them. Its a shame but unfortunately predictable.

I'm thinking about starting a "shit campaign" against the Impact trainings. Instead of arguing with them, I am simply going to drive to Bluffdale a few times a month and deficate in front of the building's main door. I do not believe this will bring down the company and I do not expect it to change anyone's opinion about the organization, I just think it would be REALLY

Perhaps I'm in the minority on this one but I haven't found Espiritu's comments to be the least bit offensive or insensitive. Impact is far more wacky today than it was 15 years ago and it is reasonable to assume that some people are going to experience more adverse effects to the program than others. Espiritu has been consistently critical of the Bergers and Impact in general.

I had a good laugh last Friday when I passed by the Southtowne Mall on my way to I-15. I noticed 3 individuals walking back and forth along the curb just north of 106th South holding signs and a clear 1 gallon jug. Occasionally they would walk off the curb and cars would be forced to slow down or swerve slightly. The individuals in question seemed oblivious to their effect on the traffic but t

Hi Espiritu, welcome to the thread. For some reason I stopped getting email notifications of new posts on the thread otherwise I would have responded more quickly. I think its fair to say that some forms of new age meditation/practices are less harmful than others.

Also, can anyone tell me if minors are allowed to attend the Quest/Liftoff/Summit classes and if it is very common? Thank you. ITcritic ITcr
