Hello - where is everyone at?

I've popped in occasionally over the past 7 months (since my last contribution) and wondered along with everyone else how come everything has died down. On returning this time I decided to create a thread where anyone who visits occasionally but doesn't contribute (especially but not exclusively pre...

Does Merry or any other SES person wish to comment against this thread? It seems to go right to the heart of the matter. You have been quick to respond to the Lambie / Debenham thread - even suggesting the title of that thread be changed. What is your reaction to this thread? Let's face it. There wa...

Debenham

[Hello again everyone.] I agree that forced apologies are not worth much if anything. I have just skimmed this thread so may have missed the subtlety of it - but if the main thrust is that the SES is no longer supportive of Debenham then my response is: YIPPEE! There is a separate question around SE...

World cup

Some key people (Ravesi's / mm-) have recently departed which has left a bit of a vaccuum. World cup: I have achieved my lifelong fitness ambition - to have the body of a Brazillian centre forward. ADG - thought the socceroos did very well against Brazil - although there was a certain inevitability ...

Posting from home has become hard since two of my kids conspired between them to pour an entire glass of orange juice over the keyboard. 1980sstJ - Although you have not posted on this BB any details of what you went through I get the impression that it may have been towards the worst end of the sca...

Update

I've been staring at this thread for some while and thinking what a pity it is that there has been nothing added recently - given its importance. There have been a number of new posters to this site since March - I have linked a few below. Maybe someone else can finish the job: Message from Elizabet...

Re: Boddy & Pincham: what sort of men are you?

I could not even begin to explain the effect that the abuse I suffered at St James had on me. It was TRULY horrific. 1980sstJ - I can well believe it. I suspect that your story is one which is very much in need of being told - and heard by all sides of this debate. I know from my own experience tha...

Well, again, it's impossible to convince anyone the school's changed if they aren't willing to see it as it is. anti-ses, I challenge you on the above statement - in particular the words "see it as it is". This seemingly objective statement is in fact at the root of much difficulty with SES. Who sa...

Reply to Anita

Hi Anita, You raise a very interesting question and it is one which I also thought about whilst reading this thread. I have googled this issue and not found anything at all written about meditation causing mental illness. This is not to say there is no connection, but (from the web link provided by ...

Does anyone remember the meditation 'checks' we used to have in our homes (I'm presuming it wasn't only me)? I can't remember the man's name now but he used to come over in the evening about once or twice a year to perform this 'check'. I vaguely remember something along these lines. I had been med...

Eat shit

Two clicks (on the same website) got me through to a statement: Why have six million people learned the Transcendental Meditation technique? Reminds me of a joke - "Eat shit, 8 trillion flies can't be wrong." Sorry - couldn't resist. Two further clicks got me to the following statement: Course Fee: ...

OK - leaflets. Please can someone post a copy of the leaflet here. If you have a copy but wish to remain anonymous, perhaps you could anonymously e-mail it to me at Ben.Wheaton@hotmail.com and I will post it. OR If you (mm or anyone else) know someone who received one of these leaflets, please can y...
