Re: St James Senior Boys has a new headmaster

That video gives me the chills. This is indoctrination. Just listen to some of the translations.

Re: An End to the Usurpation by Daffy

Something I thought of - how about a couple of new pinned threads at the top of the board, one for SES leavers and one for childhood survivors? These could explain the site and how it works (and how it's evolved) and give them a safe place to post their first contact with the board.Then those of us ...

Well said, Bonsai, I second that.

Re: An End to the Usurpation by Daffy

Hi Daffy, I would also be very much in favour of a separate board for childhood survivors. If I were coming to this board for the first time now, a great deal of what is active on here would scare the living daylights out of me! The pinned thread at the top is now so long and complicated, and many o...

Re: NEW TO FORUM

Hi MIA and welcome to the forum. There have been less threads and discussions lately about those of us who were sent to the St James and St Vedast. We have a unique perspective on the whole thing as we were sent there against our will and had no choice but to believe what we were told by the "r...

Re: Positive Vibration.

I began doing Mindfulness meditation about 3 months ago, as part of my attempts to manage my chronic pain. I did a free 11 week course at my local NHS Pain Clinic. At first, the meditation freaked me out a bit (particularly doing it in a group) but the tutors were aware of my history (it helped that...

Re: EXPERIENCES AT ST. VEDAST (now St. James) AND THE S.E.S

Thank you! This forum has been invaluable to all of us, if only as a place where we can "sound off" (a bit like I did yesterday!). Please don't worry that your starting up this thread again has made things worse, it hasn't. I was having a bad day yesterday, and felt I needed to respond to ...

Re: EXPERIENCES AT ST. VEDAST (now St. James) AND THE S.E.S

Hi Observer, Only just read your post, but thank you so much for your kind words. For some of us, life is a daily struggle still, even after all these years. What many people fail to understand about child abuse is that the "child" has to live the rest of their life forever changed. Some o...

Re: Donald Lambie

Hallo landgirl, welcome to the forum, and congratulations for posting this. It obviously took a lot of courage to do it. I really feel for you when you outline how you are suffering so much psychologically. This is something that every SES survivor who posts on this forum will identify with, I'm sur...

Recent experience of the SES/SOP in the UK? Can you help?

Hi, Anyone who has read my recent thread "Has the SES ever been classified as a cult in the UK?" will know that I have been in contact with a small local magazine about them allowing a local branch of the SES/SOP to advertise their "philosophy" courses in their magazine. If you w...

Re: Has SES been officially classified as a cult in the UK?

Hi woodgreen, Thanks for your response. To answer your questions: I don't want to name the magazine on here, simply because I don't have their permission to do so, and so far they have been very open to a dialogue with me. They are a small, mostly volunteer run publication and it wouldn't be fair, a...

Re: Has SES been officially classified as a cult in the UK?

I wouldn't eat your words too quickly, Blissfully Sleeping, although I do think we're getting somewhere! Below is the latest email I received yesterday from the owner of the magazine (which is a very small, free magazine which prides itself on being ethically and socially responsible). Where I've re...

Re: Has SES been officially classified as a cult in the UK?

Thanks, everyone. Nothing may come of this, but I do feel that if we stay silent, then nothing will happen, period. I'm happy for anyone on here to copy and use parts of my letter if it will help.
