Hey, everyone -- I've been away for a few weeks because there wasn't much happening on this thread; glad it's picked up! Quotelaarree I met Adam at a conference back in June and confirmed that he actually did do the DC course back around 1985, and that he had dated someone named Swansea. I actually have a letter in my files of DC-related correspondence that mentions someone na

Wow, REALnothings, thank you for such a vivid and detailed description. It rings so true, and I had forgotten, and now it's so helpful to look back on it from my current perspective ... that one about "How are you doing?" is priceless! If I didn't know it to be true, I'd almost think it was satire. And the eggs. And the facial, etc. But wow! It's amazing to think wh

Quotelaarree... He said he faked being crazy, hoping he would get put in a psychiatric institution instead of in jail. This happened, and then he escaped from the institution and came up to New York. ... Of course, this led me to joke for a long time about how I was in a cult founded by an escaped mental patient. And you guys were too. :-) How much was he actually faking? ;) Seriously, w

Thanks for your perspective, folks. I'm definitely glad you're all here to help vet these things ... I am still so naive.

QuoteREALnothings ... I still deal with these extraversion/introversion issues and uncertainties in myself and with my behavior. ... ... So much karma/energy had been generated by my relations with the group, though, that For at least a week or two I felt like someone who'd just withdrawn cold-turkey from a prolonged period of psychedelic drug use. It's interesting that you put it t

Anyone heard of this? A woman I know as a highly accomplished coach recommended it highly. So I looked at the website ... has some familiar LGAT-style features from what I can see.

This humor goes beyond LGATs to skewer pretty much anything new age, pop psych, etc. ... I got a chuckle. (Copied from www.gnu.org/fun/jokes/religions.html) New-Age-Astral-Vibration Rap by Steve Webber I was having an out-of-body experience so I grounded myself and got centered with the help of my spirit guide, then I almost astral traveled but the phone rang and I sensed the negative vi

I see this thread hasn't been active for a while, but I just recently discovered this board. It is extremely useful to hear someone's clear description of their experience with ESP. (Thanks, a.) A friend recommened this program to me -- but with reservations, mostly due to cost. She only mentioned it because I was describing my recent emotional challenges ... which led to a long convers

I so wish I had known this back when I was getting out ... this info would be useful OUTSIDE a cult education forum, like in the free new-age magazines found in large cities, or at holistic health expos, etc. Along with other tips I've seen you (and others) post elsewhere in the forum, corboy.

Yes, finger testing (instead of larger muscle testing, as in applied kinesthesiology). And yes, the direction it was going in when I left was starting to sound more occult/esoteric -- and thus less appealing to me, since I was more into "blast through your limits, change your life"-type processing. Rather than stuff like clearing past lives, which we started doing. Having been open to t

Thanks, Laarree. Both might be productive. I am definitely interested in this "species" of cult, since it was the kind that sucked me in. After Naexus it had a phase of being called something else; not Naka-Ima -- that is an offshoot by two former staffers. (I actually visited Lost Valley, which at the time hosted those workshops; but it didn't really have much draw. Probably a goo

Emotional Freedom Techniques. It's a purported alternative therapy, but critics say there is no real proof of its effectiveness. There are a couple of other threads on that topic; I'm not sure how to link to them but here's one try:

Has anyone heard anything about or had experience with this group? It was recommended to me by the editor of a progressive parenting magazine -- which, by the way, also heavily promotes EFT. (That in itself doesn't seem to be a bad thing, since the intention is to help kids learn to soothe themselves ... I think.) Take a look:

Wow, finally something about this group! I knew Immunics was their latest thing ... the outgrowth of the more woo-woo sounding direction they were taking when I left in 1994. They had changed their name to U-I-Ku (or something close), but when I joined the group was called Naexus. I didn't realize it was a cult, because all the descriptions in resources I could find back then sounded much mo
