Hi Readers – this a quick one for some nuts and bolts:
1-The “lectures/presentations”: “school”/the study/the-cult-with-no-name often recruits by recycling “lectures/presentations”. A generous reader provided some titles & topics carousel-ed through the merry-go-round. If a “friend” (old or new) randomly floats a vague invite to a thing addressing an esoteric topic … if they can’t provide basic details: where, when, who, what … if your friend tows you to a hotel conference room. If the presenters provide zero info on who they are, but aggressively insists that you fill out a contact card, beware & hold on to your wallet! The following topics may indicate cult recruitment:
- WHO IS THE EARTH?
- FOUND IN TRANSLATION, THE GOLDEN AGE of SPAIN
- MOZART, I CAME TO MYSELF IN THE DARK WOODS
- THE DEVINE FEMININE
Apparently “school” uses and claims other people’s research. Given that “school” claims its ideas — i.e. The Fourth Way — are an “…ancient, oral, teaching passed down from teacher to student …”, that ” … you won’t find anywhere else …” this is no big surprise.
2-Questions about the Cult Confessions, CD Release, on Saturday, June 9 — some are asking how long the show will be. So FYI, The Burren Backroom hosts LOTS of music. Me and The Lied To’s have the room from 7-9; at 9, we are ushered out, as another band starts its show. The last time I was there, the demographic shifted considerably between the 7 p.m. show and the 9 p.m. show 😉 Just sayin’. Long story short, we aim (cough) to be efficient! On at 7, off before 9 to say hello, sell records, pack up and clear out. It’ll be fun and quick 🙂 Hope you can join us! Here’s a coupon code: 24HOUR for a discount. Buy your tickets HERE.
3- Here’s a song for your perusal: Some Bridges Should Burn (this one is cathartic!)
Hope to see you! Have a lovely day, ERF
