"The Unleashing is a magickal ritual, whether it is consciously intended as one or not." YEP. Too bad all the intention is going to get frittered away by 55yo divorcees using stuff like this as a social group and *intending* to repartner, huh. Or maybe not too bad.

I really hate that loons like this have corrupted *gardening.* Gardening! What chaps my ass about this kind of culty stuff is that it makes normal behavior like learning to darn a sock or make a sheet mulch seem as bizarre as crystal healing. You freaks have a lot to answer for. You are undermining the process of rebuilding community and preserving what's left of a healthy ecosystem by y

There's some discussion here of possible links between the Transition Town movement and Rudolf Steiner/anthroposophy/Waldorf/Camphill. Nothing firm, but entertaining! ’s-anthroposophy/

Anticult, I really appreciate the hard work you've done documenting the wikipedia abuse. But you need to chill about One Taste being poised to go national and sexually brainwash the youth of America. This will never happen. They're all going to give each other finger herpes and the place is probably crawling with scabies and bedbugs. Physical reality will always be a curb on this

If "Tim" is a state investigator, he should produce some credentials - his real name, and the contact information for the office he works for. I think his posts are very suspicious. He appears to be defending the program and he has way too much information about the razor blade incident. Unless he proves who he is, assume he's working for the school, trying to track down people

Sure, but that's an Indo-European language, a Western culture, and most importantly, the group was self-selected.

It's just not the dilution in translation, it's the dilution of the whole thing. For the brainwashing to work, you have to have total control of the space, and there's no way to control spaces you don't control. How are you going to line up all the chairs and remove all visual stimulus in a public school classroom? How are you going to have plants in a prison? And even mor

I would assume they would like to get into the public schools, into court-mandated drug and alcohol programs, and into the prisons, here and outside the US. The problems with this plan: 1. Scientology, cultish forms of AA, and everyone else wants to do the same thing 2. The less control they have over the exercise of the technology, the less effective it will be. There is no way to keep

I'm starting to think infowars is the mind control experiment. It sure makes people paranoid and susceptible.

This is slightly offtopic but it's something I've been chewing on for a long time. I grew up in San Francisco. I was a child there in the 80s. Reading this board has alllowed me to put together the last pieces of why everything was so weird. Most people are familiar with the dynamics of a dysfunctional family when alcohol or drugs are impeding the parents' abilities to provid

Plus it is such a big fat lie that HAI is the only nudie sex workshop on the planet. What tantra teacher *doesn't* offer workshops in the nude? Try it outside of the US, it's not going to fly here anymore.

The people who created this program know what they're doing. This is Landmark for the genitals.

Nutrino, thank you so much for the information you've posted here. I remember twigging to the fact that Landmark was Wittgenstein-and-Heidegger Lite, and I used to think to myself, if they were really interested in human potential and human freedom, they would equipping people with the tools to read Heidegger. But of course to do that means equipping people with the tools to refute Heide

The nudity is annoying. The buzzwords are annoying. The encroaching polyamory is absolutely from hell. Most people do not want to see nudity as "just that," and it's not cause they have issues, anymore than people don't want to do Landmark because they're "just not commited to living a life of possibility." Maybe you're not dropping trou in public, but h

Maybe not a cult, but generates a lot of small, cultish entities using its techniques. Hyper-sexualized. Lots and lots of Landmark overlap. Incredibly annoying. Makes people think it's ok to be naked at social events. You tell me: does encouraging people to form group households based on prolonged female orgasm make the group itself a cult, or just make it highly, highly likely that
