Don, When you mentioned Pawling, I just had a flashback of almost falling off a platform while working in 100-degree heat on that damn place. Let me know if I can help. I'll try to check messages more often.

I'm out for over 10 years, and have reasonably recovered at this point, but my blood still boils whenever I think about Sharon, Robert, Fred & Co. I'm very happy that ex-members were able to join forces to prevent the group from getting an Oscar for the "documentary" on the Russian orphanage, but I never felt that we did enough to prevent new recruiting by the group.

I just took a good look at the esotericfreedom site. There is a link to a video on the site that really hit the mark. . Priceless.

dar3463 should be able to put you in touch with people. I'd be happy to talk, but I'm not sure how we can get in touch directly. QuoteI was in the "4th way school" established in NYC, apparently for the purpose of making Sharon Gans a very wealthy woman. I was in from 1987-1996, but only found out that I had been in a cult recently, 10 years after leaving. This has been an

Kudos to you for your calm, measured and thoughtful responses to the various attempts to bait you.

Richard: I was in the group from the early 90s until about 1998. I don't recall a "Richard" in the class, although there was a "Richard-David" (not really, but they convinced him to use the silly hyphenated name), with a British accent. Oops, is that you? In any case, I'd be happy to speak with you, I just don't know how to make contact, and I don'

Betsy: Sharon sent my wife and I to Spodak for marriage counseling towards the end of our tortured epoch as members of the NY branch of Gans & Co. After the second session, I almost got up out of the couch and strangled him and his pitiful dog. That was the end of the sessions with him. I think my wife went a few more times, but finally ended the sessions as well, thank God. It w

If she's attending groups that study Gurdjieff, but it isn't really clear who are what the group is, there's no name involved, and she's secretive about it, it's most probably the cult run by Gans, her husband and/or associates. What's the group's website? If she has money, especially if it's from a trust fund, she will be treated fabulously for as long

Thank you cber7. That was helpful. I suspect that Moishe has some reason other than "I simply enjoy writing" for these posts. In any case, another ex-member of the cult once told me that there is a certain category of people (meshugenah's?) whose lives are so pathetic that being a patsy for Gans, Klein, Horn & Co. is actually not such a bad thing, and probably no d

My last post didn't work, I think. I'd be happy to help out, even to form an ex-member (and significant other) support group. Gans and company (the New York classes on lower Broadway) did their best to destroy my marriage. Luckily for me, they didn't succeed. But I'd really love to see someone finally bring a lawsuit. coronoma&#

I almost died laughing when I was doing research on the Gans cult after finally getting out, and found that Supreme Court case. God I wish I knew that David's real name was Darwin when I was suffering through his classes, it would at least have made things a bit more bearable.

Thank you for that post. As a still-recovering ex-member, I agree wholeheartedly with your comments.
