    Stalin, Hitler, Mao, The Father/Son transexual tandem in N. Korea.....These big with power and total control......
    There have always been throughout human history, The ones that dwell underneath leaching off of the weak minded and lost
    of the populace.....Jim Jones, LR Hubbard, Jim Baker and the ilk that prey on those that are looking for anchors in life or a "Salve"
    To doctor the burns of horrendous decisions/mistakes they made in life.....What I read is no different, Just using different avenues of
    persuasion to get the job done....And reap the rewards of the consummate con........I and only I, Have the "Answer".......
    So long as you pay me for it........

    I can't believe Howard is into this crap! He really isn't anything remotely like he used to be.

    He's been into that TM bullshit for decades. A "spirituality" custom designed for navel gazing narcissists with money. Is this new one really that much of a stretch?

    I hope Hanzi finds out about this cult and questions the Wig about it.
    I wish it could be brought up on the show to nail the new Cult Wigman .

    Agreed. This GTD dreck absolutely feels like an extension of TM and other cults that front as self-improvement. Naturally, Wigdick's ShrinkDick has to encourage this kind of involvement. It is part and parcel to said shrink's indulgence of Wig's abject narcissism.

    I'm telling you, how any shrink can continue to indulge and pander to one's disorder is beyond me. :nag:

    Interesting cult forum. Who knew all this stuff was out there? And that mediation was dangerous.

    Who has time for all that?

    I knew an entire family that used to attend all those Pathways seminars (I guess they have something to do with Dr. Phil?
    That should have been a dead giveaway right there) - they all ended up getting divorced from their spouses.
    All of them. And marrying other people who attend those seminars.
    And oh yeah, the wives are all candles salespersons. They have those at home candle parties.
    Geezus...

    :cash: and lots of it would be the explanation for his shrink. I'm sure that the level of venality among shrinks who cater to that class of moneyed fuck ups is probably pretty high. It doesn't pay to indulge the delusions of the poor, but Howard on the other hand...cha ching

    the parents of Jewish boomers tried to give their kids everything except Judaism, they felt real Judaism to be provincial superstitious not fit for suburban sofisticates. Yet ironically they exposed their kids to empty ritual, teach them to read Hebrew with no understanding of the words, torah without ethics, prayer without emunah. leaving their kids with no spiritual connection , no ethical foundation and surprise, a whole generation who is so desperate in search of meaning they fall for any bullshit that comes along. drugs, sex, cults

    Because Howard's parents were into Transcendental Meditation, Howard got into it, and got Alison, Robin and now Beth into it. Although Howard has always claimed to be a Bill Clinton supporter, he and Alison each donated money to the 1992 campaign of a candidate for the Natural Law Party, who advocated a greater use of TM. From the unauthorized bio:

    If you're going to be in Howard's inner circle, you have to go all-in.

    Howard's film project at Boston University was about Transcendental Meditation. He cast Alison in the movie (which in Private Parts became an artsy movie about Jesus). And while working in Westchester, he lived in a monastery run by a TM group, where you weren't allowed to talk or watch television.

    Also from the unauthorized bio: At a party in his early 20s, Howard discussed whether or not it would actually be possible to levitate his mother through Transcendental Meditation.
