PSI Seminars / Stay away!

1 United States Review updated:

was doing some more research on PSI Seminars and their 90 day “Program” called PLD. The following emails were found on their yahoo group. This group started in August 2007 and the bulk of the membership started dropping out after two months. I found this is rather common with PSI; be it their PSI7 groups or the PLD Programs. The die-hard fans of PSI stick around for years either recruiting their family and friends to this crap. I’m starting to see the same names in all of these groups acting like they belong when in fact they try to maintain the group in order to recruit more victims. The main theme is the program causes people to loose their relationships as you will find in the examples below. I removed the names and added some comments.

I need your support on this issue. My husband is extremely pissed off because my partner is a man! (Imagine that!!!) As my goal to have a number 10 relationship with him. I feel I am miserably failing. I want to quit because of the influences he brings to the table in my life. One way or another information was giving to him about last nights event. He is

mad because I had a DATE with my buddy. (If I had been her husband I would have been mad too; Oh wait I was that husband.) I don't regret what I did last night it was very valuable to me. I learned a lot more about trust and surrender. However, I am being attacked. Do any of you have advice? What am I doing wrong? Coaches HELP!!

Just a thought here:

Has your husband been to the Basic? (Again the typical answer; “Has he taken the basic?” Like this is the answer to the problem.) If so, there is one scheduled and starting October 11th that perhaps he can re-audit? If not, perhaps he would be willing to try it. Either way it's a great opportunity for him to work though these issues!

Team 27

Thank you for that thought. He has taken the Basic & P7. However, he has scheduling issues with work. He will not be able. He also right now is blaming PSI for our issues. I have told him these are my choices and I committed to them. What else can I do? (I would say quit.)

Re: [team_27] Team 27

Wow Sxxxxx. I'm not sure what to say. Coming from the outside it seems to clear me there are some fears coming to the surface - maybe using some of the tools you learned in Basic, 7, LS are a good starting point in working with him. Try working with each other to honestly confront each others fears. Again - just my thoughts, here are some PSI principles you might want to look at. Remember - PSI didn't invent any of this stuff - they just brought it together. If the PSI idea has bad feelings between the both of you right now, try just using the principles independent of the company ( i.e., no need to use "PSI says" or "PSI taught me". Rather, try operating from "common sense" and a life/relationship success approach.

- identifying and confronting fear in all its costumes (i.e., anger, anxiety, jealously) - how to overcome - courage

- victim / responsible - who's in charge anyway? Is He/She MAKING me something or am I?

- identify with intent - we are right now where we intend to be - perhaps an understanding of why either/both of you are where you are now.

- operating from a place of integrity

- LISTEN to him, then ask him to LISTEN to you.

    I just took the PSI basic last weekend looking for self improvement. Yes, people should learn and grow. Yes, change is hard and you need to come out of your comfort zone. Yes, life isn't want you expected and you've either disappointed yourself or others. Yes, you want to make a difference and awaken the spirit within you. However...don't be caught like Hansel and Gretel...so hungry that they couldn't resist. What's missing in your life?

    What doesn't look right, smell right, sound right...(however that saying goes) probably isn't right.

    1. What kind of legitimate educational course runs till midnight on Thur and Fri? Then have you come back full day Sat and Sun?

    2. What kind of course asks you for $500 -$700 but won't tell you what it's all about. You're not going to the movies. You won't find good surprises here, although you'll be lured into thinking so. Instead, you'll come back with problems you never knew you had. I don't call that a surprise...and it's not the right kind of personal insight either.

    3. If there are negative blogs all over the net regarding this seminar doesn't it ring alarm bells? Keep surfing, get enough info to make an informed decision. I spent over 8hrs finding loads of info, unfortunately only after I went to the basic.

    If you still decide you'd like to go. What price are you willing to pay? Not financially but cognitively. Would you open your mind to someone who isn't even a liscenced practioner? I was there...I don't care if it's hypnotism, brainwashing whatever. It's guided imagery where they take you back in time and conjure some of your deepest feelings as a kid. I think the practice is beneficial but not done in a group setting by some facilitator!

    Even if you go in there thinking you're smart with no issues and you're all happy...well be careful. My happy go lucky friends who were satisfied with life came out wanting more. The countless exercises will get you. The meditation, the voice of the narrator, the dim lights, the imagery will get you.

    I'm usually the type of person who reads the stuff online but I won't contribute. However this time, I think it's really important. For all those who are like me, please please share your thoughts for all to hear.
