Hi Justice Thanks for posting this info. I emailed Victoria to say I'd be willing to be interviewed from the perspective of a recently departed "student" of the adult SES, however she replied to say that at the moment they are only focusing on former students of the St James Independent Schools. A b...

Firstly, thanks so much to all who have replied and shared their experiences - your advice and support is more valuable than I can say, and very much appreciated. Reading the horrific personal accounts related here has all but reduced me to tears, particularly those of ET, Non-conformist, the story ...

Hi All Well it?s now two days since my last SES class, and what a class it was. I did manage to chat with two of my classmates, and found out that I am most definitely not the only one to have had doubts about the classes and the direction they are taking. Firstly though, I?d like to share what happ...

Ross said: By taking money for their "services" they are in trade and hence are breaching fundamental tenets of the trade practices legislation -- no doubt also in the UK under very similar laws -- simply, you have been "had" and feel 'dissatisfied' as customers. Ross, your comments here are spot on...

Nomad said: Well who cares what they think!? Do we really need to justify to them what we are doing with our money?! I say go for the initiation and give them very little! Have the experience and not the sacrifice! There are many other deserving true charities! Nomad, of course we do not need to jus...

Bluelight said: Firstly why not ask to see audited accounts of the SES and associated schools, as I understand it the organisation is awash with funds, perhaps your money could go to a more deserving cause? Secondly the ethos of the SES is allegedly, "sacrifice", and therefore the issue is not who ...

adult school U.K - dont know what to think!

Nomad, Thanks also for your reply, and your recommendations of other threads to read ? the content has added yet more reason for me to get out now. The hierarchical structure, the gender stereotypes, the irony that the people in the ?higher? levels of the school depend on having their egos fed vorac...

adult school U.K - dont know what to think!

Daffy, Many thanks for your reply ? it?s very useful indeed to have such feedback and reassurance from someone with vast experience. It?s interesting to hear you describe this as a major checkpoint in our time at the SES, because I couldn?t have put it better myself ? that is exactly what it feels l...

adult school U.K - dont know what to think!

Hi Vix It's remarkable to log on tonight and see your message - I too have been with the London SES for two years, and after some rather bizarre happenings I did some surfing and found this site. While much of what I've read here has been a terrible shock, other things have confirmed that my growing...
