Advice from the trainer

I have been unsure for some time about how best to highlight the concerns I have about some of the “therapeutic communities” out there and some of the advice and guidance given. The groups that form around the creator of a new “cutting edge healing modality”. The most recent “No 1 healing modality in the world!”…. The groups that quickly come to call themselves a “family”. I was part of one for 3 years. There are many out there, in all shapes and sizes.

I’m still at a loss for what to say, after 2 years of trying, as nothing I write seems to convey the real essence of the problem.

So, I’ve decided just to start anyway, by relating, with a little poetic licence, some “points of interest” and things I noticed… and let other people decide what they think of it all.

In a somewhat poetic form…. an example of the kind of trainer to ‘trainee’ advice I came across, that it seems many people find to be perfectly reasonable:

You missed the training
that’s why you’re ill!
You need to get your fill
of me
regularly…
this isn’t a one-off
this is your life!
I gave you your life back –
now you throw it away!
You know that other girl?
She’s ill again
just like you –
you two
“peas in a pod” –
I see through you,
you stopped tapping
didn’t you?
What did I tell you?
Every day
tapping
there’s no other way.
Everything that’s negative
tap it away.
It’s a thinking system,
don’t question
my universal wisdom!
Your symptoms?
Not gone?
Back just as strong?
Well you did something wrong!
The system works,
so its you
your crappy quirks –
recreating your misery.
Some people are
…so silly.
