Re: SES PHILOSOPHY: what it’s like and what to watch out for...

Further to the whole legal action thing which SES hold over people like a sword of damocles, it's hilarious really that they also very much like the story of the Zen Master Hakim. Does anyone remember that one? Hakim, a pure and respected Zen Master, is unjustly accused of fathering a child. Does he...

Hi Bluemoon, I must say when I read of DL's response to you it made my blood boil. But on the other hand, how very interesting that response is. Defamatory remarks? I wonder what his definition of defamatory remarks is with regard to the workings of the SES. All you have done in your notes is tell i...

Re: HOW CULTS LIKE THE SES WORK!

Unless a spiritual organisation has an equal balance at the top between men (reason) and women (love) it cannot function properly. I would take this further and say that unless a country or society has an equal balance at the top between men and women it cannot function properly. I look around the ...

Re: THE SES and THE LAWS OF MANU

But life is change, and what is appropriate for one period is not necessarily valid for another. So all this effort to hold onto certain forms only results in arrest of development. ”[/i] How true. Leon Maclaren in fact was actually trying to hold on to forms from the Victorian era. On 13th Nov, th...

Re: What is it like at St James now?

The content of that Sanskrit exam reads to me more like a scripture exam than a language exam. It smacks of indoctrination. The statement 'The central idea of the Laws of Manu is the preservation of dharma, law or virtue, in society. Students should take note of this important theme when analysing t...

Re: SES Origins and Character

Doesn’t that show that the SES is a cult, no matter if people want to believe that or not. Yes I'd certainly say so, Ahamty2. Further proof, if further proof were needed, that the SES is definitely a mind control cult. As you say, they start with the techniques at the very first session in Part 1. ...

Re: SES Origins and Character

Ahamty2 and Tootsie,
If it's not a rude question, why did you put up with that nonsense? Why didn't you just leave straight after the very first time it happened?

Re: SES Origins and Character

Women do get a raw deal in school, there is no doubt about that. Yes they certainly do, Tootsie. It's not apparent at first of course. It started to become apparent to me when we started the study days, with men being sent to do things like gardening and the women the cooking and cleaning. I mentio...

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

I'd like to juxtapose the entries in this thread with the tribute below to Roger Pincham I found recently in an SES publication: The Headteachers and staff of St James Schools would like to convey our enormous appreciation to Mr Roger Pincham on the occasion of his retirement as Chairman of Governor...

Re: Another story

More awful stories of sadism and cruelty. What kind of a sick mind could even think up these punishments? It puts me in mind of the stories from the Magdalen Laundries in Ireland; further examples of the effects of right-wing, reactionary, repressive religion. A statement from one of the articles ab...

Re: How many people still read this Forum?

That's quite shocking, ses-surviver. It's also not really that long ago. Makes you wonder if similar designs on young girls are still taking place. If David Boddy was sanctioning it then, there seems no reason to believe he doesn't still sanction it. And he's the headteacher at the boys' school, in ...

Re: SES RECONCILIATION: is there a list of your requirements?

The main thing however is that St James does not acknowledge and the inquiry did not touch the role the SES Philosophy played in shaping the culture when the schools started and what it plays in the culture of the school today. Whilst physical harm at a teacher's hand is unlikely to occur to any pu...

I don't understand why chittani is being so judgmental about the youtube video. He seems to think that he's qualified to comment and judge because of the type of school he himself went to. I don't see it. It's not the same situation. I reread some of the accounts on the St Vedast thread and they're ...

Justice, in one of your earlier posts you say:

They might also like to know what the SES mean when they claim that: “early Christianity is a form of (advaita) vedanta”.

Do you have an issue with this claim?
