Dahn Haked Again

File under: Satscams

Dahn Hak Yoga just can't catch a break in the U.S. anymore. This probably has something to do with the fact they killed one of their instructor-trainees on a forced death march in the Arizona desert last year. That has subsequently made them a primary target of anti-cult investigative reports by many local TV news outlets over the last 6 months.

In this latest report they are referred to as "Dahn Con" and the reporter found a couple of ex-followers to spill the beans:
As advertised, the Dahn centers offer new clients an energy check, like the one our researcher got on Michigan Ave.

A Dahn master pushed her so-called energy centers and found blockages.

"She said that my energy was very weak. I was in danger of falling into a depression," CBS 2 researcher Emily Withrow said.

A former Dahn instructor, who asked that his identity be concealed, says the energy check is a sales gimmick.

"Since everybody has aches and pains everyday, everybody technically has energy blockages," he said
Another ex-follower regrets falling for the flim flam:
Susan Yates went to a Dahn center in Libertyville.

"It's definitely a con," she said.

She realized that after signing contracts for classes and private healing sessions, even buying Dahn gimmicks like vibrating power brains to help healing.

"Eight thousand dollars I spent in a month. I'm embarrassed to say that I did," Susan said.

She says it happened after intense private healing sessions with the school master.

"They get you to share personal information about yourself and they'll use that to basically get you to sign up for more classes," the former employee said.

Yates quit after they wanted her to attend Dahn healer school for another $10,000 "and become healers and give our lives to Dahn."
Eight-grand can buy a lot of medicinal herbs – like a four-year supply. If you asked us, we believe you'd derive much more benefit from a daily dose of Kali Mist than this megalomaniac's quite literal brain-washing respiration exercises.
