I SPEAK FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH 6 VERY CLOSE FRIENDS AND 1 FAMILY MEMBER:

I have personally watched Impact Training staff coerce and harrass 6 of my friends into recruiting others into Impact. Saying things like "Staffing is the highest from of love" Well, Large Group Awareness cults can only continue to proliferate if they have love-bombed people, working for free at their facility (errrrr... "staffing") and calling all their friends and family to attend guest presentations (errrrr.... "recruiting sessions").

Once they get nabbed they are told to recieve the "enlightenment" they must pay a high sum of money. THey are also told if they dont have the money to "create their finances" (errr... "go clean toilets or sell your housewares on ebay) They dont care where or how you get the money... just get it. THen they have a "graduation" (errrr...recruiting session) Where their friends and family are shoved into a tiny room and are subjected to bizarre behavior, canned responses, and are presented shells of their love ones who now believe that their "Impact Family" is their true family. They also believe that those that havent attended Impact are not "enlightened" and "don't understand". That's a cult's way to protect itself. You see, if you tell the cult members that the "outsiders" don't understand and may be critical of your attending Impact you can simply blow them off as "unenlightened" and "non-understanding".

All the while Impact chugs along---sucking people into their club... HEY IVE GOT A QUESTION, IF HANS BERGER AND IMPACT ARE DOING THIS OUT OF "LOVE" WHY DO THEY CHARGE SO MUCH MONEY FOR IT?????

HERE'S A TIDBIT OF KNOWLEDGE: THE TRUTH IS NOT FOR SALE, IF IT HAS A PRICETAG, IT'S NOT THE TRUTH. YOU WANT TO "ENLIGHTEN" THE WORLD TO MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE--- DO IT FOR FREE AND GIVE AWAY TO EVERYONE. IF YOU WANT TO CHARGE PEOPLE, GO DO A JIM JONES AND SAVE US ALL YOUR CRAP!

STOP RIPPING PEOPLE OFF, STOP PREYING ON PEOPLE WITH LOW SELF-ESTEEM AND WORLDLY PROBLEMS. I TRULY BELIEVE THERE IS A SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL RESERVED FOR PEOPLE THAT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OTHERS. IF YOU ARE A STAFFER, YOU WILL EVENTUALLY ANSWER FOR IT, BUT YOU CAN'T CLAIM IGNORANCE BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD. NOW YOU KNOW, NOW YOU ARE TRULY "ENLIGHTENED"

WANNA SEE SOME EVIDENCE?: CHECK THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, SEE WHAT THEY RECOMEND TO PEOPLE THINKING OF ATTENDING IMPACT TRAININGS.

"Those attending Impact Trainings have reported that part of the process is a "tearing down" of the individual which includes being subjected to verbal abuse, insults, ridicule or humiliation. The Better Business Bureau has been presented with complaints from participants indicating that they experienced psychological disturbances or episodes as a side-effect of the training. Studies done by mental health professionals have also identified this possible side effect of the training.

Because these seminars are presented as education, trainers and presenters are not required to be licensed as mental health professionals in many states, inluding Utah. However the focus of the training is clearly behavioral, psychological and personal relationships.

We advise consumers to obtain references from skilled, trained mental health professionals regarding the benefits, efficacy, and possible side effects of such training prior to making their own decision to purchase the training, or participate.

WELCOME TO THE TRUTH!

Trust your friends and family, not internet strangers!

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

I would be surprised if people reading this trust total strangers more than their friends and family. Talk to your friends and family who have gone through this program. After talking to them, make your own decision. I trusted my wife so I went and I can't think of any aspect of my life that hasn't improved.
If you want to check it out before going, you can go to one of their free guest presentations on Tuesday nights. It's free and takes about 2 hours. The first level training is $495 and 4 days. If you don't like it, don't do the other levels! My personal experience is that most people love it. If you want to do the second level it is $695 and 4 more days. The third level is $695 and 5 weekends (1/2 of Friday and all Saturday). The weekends are spread apart by about 2 to 4 weeks. It is a busy 3 months and it takes commitment, but it is well worth it. I can't promise you that you will love it as much as I did and if you are reading this, you have probably read the rest of this site, so you have read some very negative things. I believe that these experiences are the exception. I am not knocking what they feel or what they have experienced, but ALL the people that I personally know that have gone through this program, feel they have benefited; even those that only did the first level.
Trust the people you know and love. Talk to them. They most likely won't talk about other people in the training or the processes they went through, so don't get frustrated if you ask about these things and they don't want to talk about them. There are plenty of questions that most would be happy to answer. Ask them questions like: Why did you go? What is different in your life now compared to before you went through this program? How long ago did you go through? What did you learn about you? Are you happier after going through? Are you happy that you went through? Knowing what you now know, would you do it all over? What was the biggest thing you got out of the program? What are your relationships like now? If they asked you to go, ask them why you feel I should go? Are you asking me because you think I need fixing? What benefit do you feel I will receive by going? Was it easy? Was it worth it? These types of questions won't tell you what they did, but will definitely let you know what they have experienced and how it has affected their lives. Trust your friends and family.
