Re: Practical Philosophy

Tootsie, the quote you posted above (third post from top) from the ex NYC student was indeed "perfect". It is EXACTLY what I have been trying to say to people, but I haven't been able to communicate my thoughts that succinctly. It is a brilliantly written comment.

Re: Practical Philosophy

The Sydney branch of The School of Philosophy (ex School of Economic Science) has become very proactive in rebadging itself as Practical Philosophy (not The School of Practical Philosophy as other Aussie branches have). A few weeks ago they were advertising 'discount course fees' on Social Living, a...

ABC - Compass "My Brother's Cult"

Here is a link to a little piece that was on Compass last night on the ABC1 (Australian Broadcasting Corp.) Although the cult they refer to is not the SOP/SoPP/SES/Lucca Leadership or SFSK there are things here to ponder on. It isn't ground breaking but does raise questions about the lack of conside...

Re: Art in Action

I would also like to thank you for taking the time to 'sign up' and post, redwing. It is interesting to ponder that so many affected by the SES/SOP/SoPP lurk here, but few post. Yet you, who has little reason to bother, can engage with us so openly. I wonder if it is because they still have us, even...

Re: 'Secret' mantras

Just don't let him anywhere near your kids. Too Right actually there! We took our children out of a SOP/SOPP primary school when we found out that 10 year olds are given "a secret mantra" to use when meditating in class. The children are told not to tell anyone what their word is...includ...

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

Wow ET! Your letter was very well constructed and argued, perfectly reasoned. It is great that the Editor responded. I am very much looking forward to being proved wrong, if after the people at magazine have done their research (eg find out about the Sinclair et al connection) they are prepared to d...

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

Yes, you're right woodgreen, many paths are better. In hindsight I was a litle strident in my post. I forget that my writting style can appear somewhat agressive. And I apologise if I upset anyone, that wasn't my intention. Having worked in Advertising and related industries for many years, I just d...

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

Hi ET, While I admire your determination, I think your quest will be fruitless and pretty pointless. At a time when papers are desperate for advertising dollars/pounds/euros, the Advertising Dept will not give one jot if we think there is a problem with the SES/SOP/SOPP/Lucca Leadership. We are not ...

Re: Michael Mavro Sydney SOP

Welcome Earlgrey, Many of us lurk, few have the courage to 'speak'. So you are a rare breed. Be aware that the powers that be in the Sydney SOP lurk here too, and they respond in their world swiftly. I greatly admire your courage in questioning what is happening, 30 years is a long time in an organi...

Isn't anyone else alarmed by David Boddy becoming Chairman of the Society of Heads of Independent Schools? As Chair of this lesser organisation, he is automatically on the Governing Council of the Independent Schools Council, a peek lobby group. Forget about infiltration of the Church of England,the...
