Birthday Cheer For The Maharishi
File under: Gurubusting
Today is the Maharishi's birthday, so his old nemesis and an O.G. gurubuster from way back, John Knapp of Trancenet fame, has given the senile old coot a gift in the form of the TM™-busting TM-Free Blog:
It features independent views of the various Transcendental Meditation organizations and its founder, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and discusses scandals, research, insider secrets, and more.We're happy to play clown off a gurubusting legend and his cohorts. Anything to shine a light on the colossal flimflam perped by the mad old man and his fame-whore attention-getters.
And we're proud to say it's written by some of the best-known names in TM criticism:
* Joe Kellet, former TM Teacher/Governor & author of the web site suggestibility.org
* Gina Catena, MS, NP, CNM, book author and who received childhood initiation in the Olson household in 1966 and is one of the few people on this planet with 40 years & 3 family generations' invovlement w/ TM Orgs.
* Sudarsha, former TM teacher/Governor and secretary to the Maharishi
* Susan Crittenden, former TM teacher/Governor who quit when she realized she would have sipped Jonestown Kool Aid if distributed by our dearly beloved Mahesh
* Joe Harley, former TM teacher/Governor who was one of the first, um, "flyers" and worked for a year at WPEC
* John M. Knapp, LMSW, former TM teacher/Governor, is a therapist who counsels TM victims and founded trancenet.org
