It's definitely a cult. There really would be no need to defend themselves against accusations of being a cult if they weren't. It just wouldn't be an issue. They devote an entire two hour module to why they aren't a cult. Methinks they protest too much. It's financial exploitation of emotional issues and vulnerabilities. They will totally drain you dry if you let the

calling us fools now are you?!? He will never admit defeat - persistency is the name of their game - they would just come back in a different form - ala Jenness .... It is scary how they worship him - sad actually.

Sorry, didn't see that they won't tell you the name - doesn't sound like a group I'd want to be investing any of my time, energy or money in. If they won't tell you anything about it, and that you have to experience it, that's a huge red flag. NXIVM uses that and a recent invite to Jness (run by the same person, Nancy Salzman) said the same thing - can't tell yo

Templar - please explain more about the financial difficulties - if only it were so! But I doubt it would ever come to pass. They have access to way too much dough. They are persistent and undeterred by problems and obstacles. They'll be around forever in some form or another, if not as Nxivm, they'll just morph into something else ...

How ridiculous. Who are they to decide who is a bad person or a good person? The farther away I get from this, the more ridiculous it all becomes. I remember one time, in one of his infamous forums - the great one is supposed to speak tonight, so everyone gather round - he made a comment about people taking notes. He said those taking notes were the most damaged among the group. I said to the

I think most people's fears about meditation are based upon fear and a lack of information. Based upon my own experience with meditation, a ten to twenty minute period of stillness, silence and focused concentration reduces stress and brings the mind and body back to a state of balance. What could be better for children in our schools than to take a few minutes for themselves before classes

"What the bleep..." is absolute rubbish. Avoid any person or group who is making use of this movie. They don't know what they're talking about.

... control of people and their money. They are all about power, money and control, operating under the guise of saving the world.

I've heard of other people who have left and have been afraid. I don't know a lot of specifics, no one will ever say much, but they have implied that whatever it was, it was very bad. I can't imagine what they can do or say that would make people be so fearful.

This is from several posts back ... but could someone explain exactly what Eriksonian hypnosis is and how it is used in an LGAT? Executive Success Programs utilizes "Eriksonian approaches to brief, solution based therapy...", whatever that means. I have often wondered if they were ever using any forms of hypnosis in their intensives.

I just read the new article on the website about the woman who committed suicide last winter at an Anchorage, Alaska ESP intensive and to say the least, I'm outraged. I was involved with the program at that time and this was kept quiet. I also had a very bad experience in one of their intensives. In my opinion: there is no one there qualified to handle extremely adverse reactions. The c

I know of others who have had serious psychological reactions to this program and there really is no one there who is trained in anything other than neurolinguistic programming who can help you through them. The intensives are very emotionally intense and, in my opinion, the coaches are not qualified or experienced enough to handle such situations. Professionals in the field of psychology are gen
