Insight Training Centre
Hi folks I'm going to a workshop 27th of July near Fourways at the Insight Training Centre. Have any of you been? It's run by this Jewish guy who was in the Israeli special forces. Masters in psychology and fully qualified GP.
R2500 for five days 6pm till 3am. Crazy times, for people who are working during the day I suppose. Hope my scoliosis can hold up that long. The two people who recommended it to me spoke to me with such unbelievable passion and sincerity and say it has changed their lives. I could do with a bit of that magic. Get my money back if I can't improve on my life. After ten years of the guy doing these workshops no one has asked for their money back!! Rock on! Sounds good! Doc have you heard of this?
Am so excited. Just an update...

"Dude" are you looking for attention or something? Ever heard of real poetry? Or are you too cool with the weed dog to take you're gangsta head out of you're arse. Guess you're just the typical class clown looking for attention, thanks for the amusement attention whore.

Sounds very expensive, and very profitable to the people running it. In my experience, remarkable insight is not a common feature of people in the Special Forces. And intensive courses running till 3 am sound most unwholesome, and more typical of some of the brain-washing style, or cult-related meetings, which use exhaustion of the audience to render people morem suggestible and open to suggestion by the speakers.
You get your money back if you can't improve on your life ? Who decides if you can't, and what "improve on your life" will mean, for the purposes of refunds ? if this guy was really that good, he would have a logical theory and system which would be tested, proved by scientific assessments and published in recognized clinical journals, and I haven't heard a single word about this method or this guy.
Mind you, in the old days, I used to know a psychologist who was in rhe Israeli Special Forces --- I wonder if it's him ?
