Advice from the trainer

by Alexandra McCauley
20 Apr

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
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
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.

    And the money kept rolling in….real leaders and agents of change…release you from their mind…to free yourself! To BE YOURSELF!

Tell me what you think......
