Heres a few to get you started ; “BKWSU monitoring and evaluation procedures show that the number reported child abuse scares has risen but the number considered substantiated by the outside monitors has gone down.” “BKWSU engages with its x members to try to improve treatment of its students.” “BKS...

sweetchill, Impartiality has nothing to do with the number of positive articles about something versus the number of negative. The BBC tries very hard to be impartial but say for example if it is reporting about democracy in Zimbabwe it will envariably find more negative news than positive. That isn...

reply to sweetchill

Hi Sweetchill, First of all apologies for not writing this response sooner. The conversation has moved on and I have no wish to drag it backwards. But for the record I should attend to the outstanding matters. What truth, exactly, has eromain "exposed"? If you read my report properly it is obvious t...

Dear Sweetchill, I am encouraged that your repulsion claim is based upon something other than you just guessing or psycho-analysing me from afar. I will certainly agree that disgust and repulsion are in the same ball-park. But you have misrepresented what I said: I said that my child abuse work caus...

At no point did I ask you your opinion on anything.

Hi sweetchill, I asked you to explain what the motives behind my child abuse work were. I did this because you seemed to indicate that you had some information about them. At no point did I ask you your opinion on anything. Given the opinions you have expressed about me and I repeat these are unsoli...

Dear Sweetchill, When did I say I find the BKs repulsive??? When did I say I left the BKs with bitterness?? Who have I bullied and harassed? And on what basis can you claim I have been desperate to find more examples of child abuse? And how on earth can you make such categorical statements and then ...

As for the child abuse claims - as far as I can tell there are two individuals in the organisation's 70 years history. For me, THAT is a sign of the genuine spiritual ethos of the organisation. Any other similar organisation that faced the forensic examination that Eugene has given would have uncov...

ex-l Yes, in some of my contacts re child welfare issues in the BKs I have heard similarly gruesome tales. I have heard first hand from estranged husbands of massive amounts of money disappearing to the BKs from spouses who were extremely new to BK Raja Yoga and also not in the most balanced of ment...

Hi dmitry, By the way, please don’t call me soul. It is not my name or what I am. My name is Eugene or Eromain and I am a human being. Thanks I haven’t read Grinder and Bandler on hypnotism but many of their students such as Hall and Bodenhammer. Are you really telling me that you haven’t noticed th...

Hi john and ex-l My boys are coming home today so this burst of hyperactive posting is going to hit a brick wall. I would like at some point sit down and write a piece about hypnosis in BK Raja Yoga but it isn’t going to happen soon. In the meantime you could try the book, “Self Hypnosis Plain and S...

Hi button slammer,

Sorry I don’t know what on earth you’re talking about. But I guess that you’re implying that your statements about Mike George were a joke. I just wish you had made that clear at the beginning because you certainly would have saved me a bit of time.

Cheers

John, Hypnosis is a fairly technical thing and personally I think it is fascinating because it does border on strong daily influences etc: but that doesn’t mean that all strong daily influences amount to hypnosis, nor all hypnosis amounts to strong daily influence. If you are interested in the issue...

Can I ask what are these many hypnotic methods you know because you sound to me like you and I are talking about two completely different things.

Hi john, I didn’t discount hypnotic experiences as not being true. What about hypnotic regression? I don’t know –what about it, you’ll need to explain what you mean. Hypnotism doesn’t for me mean something dirty or sinister. But as to your question as to whether cults use hypnotic techniques yes the...
