The Rev. Sun-Yung Cohen?
File under: Gurubusting
We love it when a tipster does all the work for us:
Details will apparently be forthcoming, but this current student's blog reveals that the Rev. Sun-Yung [Andrew] Cohen has orchestrated and officiated at a group marriage ceremony for four couples this New Year's Eve. What isn't [revealed] in the meaning "relationship in an evolutionary context" is that in the past Cohen has always had final approval of who gets to have a sexual relationship with whom, and often pairs people up himself.Cohen's own mother explains it all, speaking to Cohen himself:
The other irony to all this is that Cohen used to have quite a penchant for breaking up married couples who became formal students. This was the case for years... now he's marrying them... I guess either way, it's all about who's controlling the marriage... and when it comes to his students it's got to be him.
[It] also could be interesting to remind everyone that this is all happening at Foxhollow, the ashram he bilked $2 million from Jane O'Neil to acquire.
Everyone lives in terror. Of you. The people nearest you are all spies. For you. They're also sycophants, telling you only what you want to hear, because they're afraid to tell you the truth. So you get no feedback. There is nothing at all to modify your behavior. Nothing.Playing with people's lives like he owns them. It's much more within the purview of character disorder than anything that could be called true wisdom.
