That bastard (Werner) treated his family so horribly there are no words... I rarely run into people that know anything about Lifespring so I always get a little bit excited. lol
Going to read your thread now!
Wow. I did not know Wener Erhard, except for his teachings. He was an asshole?
I do however know John Hanley, and met his son when he was a kid.
I rarely run into anyone either and am desperate to connect.
I want to tell my WHOLE story.
There are still so many idiots joining cults today.
The biggest problem with Lifespring, is one of the biggest problems with ScientoLIEogy.
The ethics or the training or whatever you call it may be all well and good, but it is controlled by a human being.
DM is a psychotic. But Power can fill any idiots' head so much the person loses all sense of right and wrong and becomes in love with their own power.
This is why THREE people died while I worked for Lifespring.
After caught by the cult I accepted a job and moved across the country. I totally bombed my life like a volcano, causing one college professor to say: you will never be able to put the pieces back together.
Now it is years and years and years later. My husband and I were set up on a blind date 22 years ago by my friend who I met at Lifespring 35 years ago. So there you go.
