Gangaji/Jaxon-Bear Bring In The Lawyers
File under: Hands Where They Don't Belong and The Siddhi of PR
Just as we'd presciently (and perhaps cynically) anticipated, Gangaji and her philandering husband/co-guru Eli Jaxon-Bear have now called out their lawyers in response to his alleged victim's doing the same:
In our last letter, we shared our desire to hold community meetings as well as sending out letters from Gangaji and Eli. We did hold a community meeting in Ashland, and have been in the planning stages for additional community meetings.To save their asses from being sued to a bloody pulp, that is.
Recently however, the Foundation received communications from the student's legal counsel. It has now become necessary and appropriate for the Foundation to retain legal counsel. Having done so, we are choosing to follow the advice of our counsel to not publish letters from Gangaji or Eli, nor to continue scheduling community meetings. We are truly sorry that we are unable to follow through on that commitment, but we must now allow the legal process to take its course.
Gangaji's sticking with Jaxon-Bear indicates to us that she is truly a self-realized master. Either that or she's an unmitigated fool who lacks any common sense and insight while stuck in a hellish co-dependency with an adulterous husband. A third possibility is that they are staying together for the sake of the "children," who in this case are the satsangis who've been willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. In any case, traffic for this site is up 33% since the scandal broke, so whatever it is that they are doing, they should just keep doing it as far as we're concerned.
