Damn. Was planning to boil a frog this evening, and now you tell me this. :-)

Re: Where I'm at

Chittani,
No time to do more than acknowledge, from my perspective, a really insightful reflection. More later.
And thanks for joining some dots to help see your personal journey.
Much respect,

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

As I say its just something I recall, so I might well be wrong. But I did read something (I think on this forum) that indicated Townend had a massive conflict of interest. Either he was an SES member or had a previous professional or organizational relationship with one or more of the trustees of S...

Re: Coming to terms with stupidity

The day school still has problems with how it disciplines children. There must be something wrong in the "teaching" on education from the shankarachaya. I had a child in the day school in Melbourne. She is stubborn and will not do something if she does not think it makes sense. She lost a...

Same argument, and similar tone to the poster known as Anti-SES. Similar ability to go off on a tangent from the topic.

Interesting. Given that the material promotes D. Van Ouyen's claim to McLaren's estate, and has a link to P. Van Ouyen's site, the voice of the MacLaren Foundation may not be hard to identify. ( later ). They think so too here: http://kaiwalya.hyperboards.com/index.php?action=view_topic&topic_id...

Thanks Abel. I think I recognise Kevin's voice from these forums. Good to see what he and others are trying to do. Some interesting material - worth a look. Miscellaneous observation - one-time contributor to these fora and St James teacher Katherine Watson is no longer a member of the SES. http://k...

Basically, yes - confirmed recently by a number of long-term participants.

Anyway, if you have any ideas about why they, our parents and teachers, allowed themselves to become so submissive to the organisation, or why or how they allowed the consequences of that weakness to impinge upon our well-being then speak up with courage and confidence. Don't get nasty, because we ...

The sad thing about the SES is that whilst it is based on Advaita, a separate branch of Hinduism, they would claim not to be Hindu. They have bastardised the philosophy quite a bit and meshed in all sorts of ideas from other sources. As soon as people allow their own reason and discrimination to be...

Good morning Abel, No, I'm generalising from the Australian schools, which is (AFAIK) completely staffed by School of Philosophy / SES people. Generalising is always risky, but suspect I'm correct about the selection criteria for the majority of the schools. To quote the front page of the Erasmus Sc...

Re: John Scottus School in Ireland - illegal corporal punish

...the Principal, Mary Telford, who was teaching the very youngest boys on a temporary basis while their usual teacher was finishing his training, slapped two of the boys. These boys are 5 years old and they were messing with paper and not doing what they were told (fairly normal 5 year old behavio...

Yes - spotted this a couple of years ago and it seems to be an element of the SES/SOP's new approach to engaging potential young members. Appears to be founded and staffed entirely by SES people. Not mentioning the connection is the usual mistake the SES make. Why not be transparent? What is there t...
