This post continues the discussion of Esalen in connection with RA Anon's testimony. Part one of the discussion of Esalen is available here.
Chart depicting some connections between Esalen and various groups from previous posts:
Skinner's studies on conditioning animals in cages with electric shock, bright lights, and noise - are extremely reminiscent of ritual and MKULTRA type abuse recounted by many ritual abuse/mkultra survivors. His possible association with the CIA should also be noted, and continues the previously discussed connections between Esalen and military intelligence, the Human Potential Movement, and Tavistock.
This situation may be what we are witnessing in the "Skippy" "Fatherhood" video provided by Worldcorp.
This the extremely disturbing film, a child is screaming in what appears to be a shower, with flashing colored lights filling the space, adding to sensory confusion for the child. The child is in a shower, screaming. I believe this is the result of water on the floor of that shower being electrified. In this case the child could not escape the electric currents applied to their feet and legs, no matter where they jump. The flashing lights add to totally overwhelm the child, and creates a horrible version of a skinner's box.
This results in the interaction we see in the film - the child tries desperately to escape the pain, but finds no safety and no escape. Meanwhile, "Skippy" screams at the child, with statement like "I am your father." This shocking instance may show a segment of how multiple personality disorder is intentionally induced, with "Skippy" giving authoritarian commands as the child's mind and selfhood are broken.
In this case the child is taught to obey the person screaming at them at a deep unconscious level, through the trauma which breaks through cognitive processes and sears a vivid experience on the level of the deepest self. In As the child is still forming their sense of self, this type of abuse would have profound effects on the child's ultimate development. It is an example of the methods used to create 'controlled controllers' as perfected by the military intelligence psychological psychiatrists including R.D. Laing, who authored "The Divided Self: An Existential Study in Sanity and Madness." He worked at Tavistock for a number of years, and was connected to Esalen and the Human Potential Movement, as was BF Skinner.
In one report on the video, "Skippy" tells the child to STAY IN THE WATER, - which I believe is proving my point that this child is being electrocuted in this water exactly as skinner electrocuted doves and rats in his boxes, and used flashing lights and noise in the exact way we see in this film.
I link to the video here and here with a preface that this video is extremely triggering, and ask that readers ONLY view it with the utmost warning in mind that this is extremely disturbing material which documents serious child abuse. Another clip is here
This series of videos appears to directly show a child being abused in the same method Skinner developed. The shower replaces the animal cage in this case, but the electrocution, lights and noise remain. That BF Skinner is connected to Esalen provides an extremely disturbing connection which would possibly strengthen my argument that locations like Esalen study, "improve," develop and monitor this type of practice. What we see in the worldcorp video may have been developed in part as a technique of practice at locations including Esalen, - the Allen Institute at McGill, and others.
The child shown in severe pain and terror is in a shower with flashing lights as the person, possibly John Podesta in an altered state, screams at them. This is a horrible human version of a Skinner's box, which creates a fractured personality with methods of extreme abuse and encodes obedience by repeating phrases like "I am your father" / you will obey me etc, encoding these statements at a deep level of consciousness at the moment that the child's mind breaks.
This is the horrible end point of operant conditioning, and it gives us the controlled controllers I've discussed in previous posts. It also - very conveniently- creates enough suffering and trauma to fracture a personality, while leaving no physical traces of abuse with which the abusers could be identified, and no injuries which would be able to serve as evidence. The only scars left on the child which goes through such torture are left on the mind in a broken psyche. Children who go through this method of torture are left with no physical scars, only a confused memory and a dissociated "part" of themselves.
The public must understand what is being done to children and the environment in which our establishment is created, if there is ever going to be be hope of ending such abuse and/or freeing ourselves from a system of endless corruption.
It should also be remembered that other methods of breaking a child's personality without leaving scars/evidence of abuse is to force them to witness or participate in the torture of others, sometimes under the influence of drugs.
It is publicly acknowledged that Skinner also applied a variety of his operant conditioning theory to his own children . Although as far as is publicly reported, he created this type of Skinner's box without the employment of electrical shock.
Some of Skinner's work catalogued at Esalen. This shows the degree to which Esalen not only hosted Skinner as an early visitor, but chose to collect his work.
I've also discussed Esalen's extensive collection of CIA doctor's research here.
Jason Weston, Harbin, and Pedophilia
Disturbingly, Esalen faculty member Jason Weston, is associated with admitted pedophile David Werner, who was employed for decades in "humanitarian service" by various UN-tied NGO's, where he abused young and often disabled boys in his care. This issue, as well as disturbing connections stemming from Harbin, HAI Global and Ecstatic Living were discussed at length in the first entry in this series. HAI Global, Harbin and Ecstatic Living have numerous links with Esalen and the Centers Gathering.
Weston is the Executive Director for HAI Global, which has its headquarters in Harbin Hot Springs. I wrote more about these connections in this post. Weston is a member of the faculty at Esalen. HAI Global is headquartered at Harbin Hot Springs as I discussed in my previous post, but it also holds seminars at Esalen. For that reason, Harbin & HAI Global's connection to a self admitted pedophile are significant context to any discussion of Esalen.
Harbin Hot Springs also runs the "Heart Conciousness Church"
Mention of The Ritual at Esalen's site is seen by this author as referencing actual rituals which take place at this location. It is interesting to note that many locations connected to the Centers Gathering and especially potentially to ritual abuse are located near springs. This is seen in Harbin Hot Springs. Findhorn also lies on what its members call a "point of power," which I discussed in a previous post. The legitimacy of ley lines or springs etc totally aside, it is significant that these campuses themselves focus on such things, and coincides with allegations of ritual abuse. Springs are especially significant in terms of ritual abuse which occurs in bodies of water.
Esalen's Center for Theory and Research
Esalen lists their 'cultural activities' here which includes major "Citizen Diplomacy with Russia." This may be best understood as a form of back-channel diplomacy, and indicates that Esalen has military or some variety of ties to those involved in National Security, as one would guess that Esalen would not be permitted to speak with leading Russian figured without some type of governmental oversight.
Alduous Huxley, Esalen and the 'Ultimate Revolution'
Esalen founders Michael Murphy and Dick Price were influenced by a lecture by Aldous Huxley titled "Human Potentialities." This is reminiscent of the Human Potential Movement, founded later at Esalen.
Huxley was author of the novel 'Brave New World,' and a leader in the early days of the development of military mind control and use of LSD etc. His brother was a prominent eugenicist, and Huxley's wife is connected to Findhorn, as I've discussed previously.
A speech he gave on what he referred to as the "ultimate revolution" is particularly important in understanding the significance of his connection with Esalen.
During his lecture, Huxley discusses "new techniques to control and moderate human behavior." This is very similar to B.F. Skinner's work on operant conditioning and probably references trauma based mind control.
He also states that oligarchs "have always existed and presumably always will exist" will be able to "make people live their servitude." This explains why it is so centrally important for the true global controllers to create puppets that will serve their interests, as well as a mass populace that is easily controllable. Huxley explicitly discusses the mass production of human beings, as part of a horrifically pragmatic view of a caste system which intends to create a homogenous, complacent public.
Huxley also touches on the topic of creating more intense mind control effects by accessing a person's deep subconscious in a moment of serious trauma. As I mentioned earlier in reference to Skinner's Box and the 'fatherhood' video - such true breaks are created especially in children in order to mould a desired alter - via methods we saw in the Worldcorp video where a very young child is being tortured while ordered to obey. Giving such orders during such extreme trauma creates a profound, deeply held psychological effect on the child who undergoes it.
I provide segments here of a transcript of Huxley's speech., and Huxley can be heard giving this talk [here](
Esalen also appears in a Wikileaks document, specifically a "Sunday Dinner" Email, which refers to Esalen as a "thinktank" which discusses topics like "writing the next chapter of Capitalism." So Esalen is not only linked with studies in mind control, but is engaged in mass social control as well.
This Larouchepub article includes Esalen when speaking of the creation of "Humanistic Psychology" as part of a CIA/Military interest in the study of mind control.
Huxley also discusses Gestalt therapy, which I believe is also associated with mind control studies, and was developed at Esalen.
Satir, NLP, Bandler and The Human Potential Movement at Esalen
Neuro Linguistic Programming , or NLP, was developed by individuals including Virginia Satir and Richard Bandler, who were intimately tied to Esalen. A very informative article on NLP is available here, and here. Satir stayed at Esalen for a number of years, and was also associated with the Human Potential Movement.
NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming was developed as a quasi-therapy with associations with hypnotism and some deeply unsavory connections. Potential uses of NLP for the purpose of mind control is reminiscent of Huxley's explici description of accessing the deep unconscious in order to effect change. It also explains major figures at Esalen being deeply concerned with hypnotism and altered states of consciousness for a potentially much darker reason than might otherwise be expected.
Studies of NLP appear to have strongly overlapped with the study of multiple personality disorder, as shown here:
It is also important to note that in this article which is posted by an NLP website, we see discussion of multiple personality disorder immediately followed by statements on pavlov's conditioning and electrocution in Skinner's box. Given the content of the 'fatherhood' video, and the standard use of electrocution in MKULTRA, this strengthens the conclusion that NLP is deeply tied to the creation of multiple personality disorder and the study of trauma based mind control. This echoes the conclusion that campuses tied directly to NLP, such as Esalen, Findhorn, Harbin, and The Haven may be considered to have participated in such studies and projects. Unlike the CIA, these locations cannot be FOIA'd, so they provide a convenient location to study such topics while providing an outward face of a 'hippy,' or 'spiritual' resort. Even Esalen admits it is involved with State Department sanctioned 'international relations.' What other activities might it have been authorized or sponsored to engage in?
Virginia Satir, who as noted was present at Esalen for a number of years and helped found studies in NLP in addition to her association with the Human Potential Movement, has been discussed in previous posts regarding The Haven.
The Haven, located in Canada, is part of the Centers Gathering Ring. Satir was a major figure at The Haven.
Virginia Satir's wikipedia page describes many of these connections. Satir's bio at the Satir Institute of the Pacific states: "She was a founder of the Mental Research Institute where she developed and taught family therapy, then became the Director of Training for the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. "
NLP is frequently used to manipulate individuals as well as larger audiences, in much the same way that Huxley described in his lecture on the Ultimate Revolution.
NLP provides a method through which masses of people can be convinced of utter lies via the power of only repetition and other NLP techniques. It is a tool employed as Huxley described - in order to convince the masses to love their servitude despite circumstances which they should not usually enjoy. Esalen and Findhorn are both very involved in this study - Findhorn's "theme" is "love in action," which means literally learning to love work that is drudgery, (dish washing, etc) ie, to love one's servitude.
Maria Gomori, Heir of Satir, Connections to Esalen and DID
Virginia Satir's heir apparent in the realm of NLP and related "therapies" is Maria Gomori. She has worked for many years with the Haven in Canada. More about Gomori is available here. Her methods are still employed in ways which suggest mind control development.
The faculty listed includes Founders of the Haven which I have previously discussed, Maria Gamori herself, and Adam Crabtree of Esalen. Interestingly, Crabtrees self-professed specialty is "dissociative identity disorders," otherwise known as Multiple Personality Disorder. This supports my understanding of Esalen as a campus where mind control, and methods of refining multiple personality disorder are explored in addition to international back-channel relations of a globalist oligarchic variety.
Crabtree's profile at the Esalen Institute includes the description of his work with multiple personality disorder:
Crabtree has published a book on multiple personality disorder -"Multiple Man: Explorations in Possession and Multiple Personality."
This alone is extremely significant in validating the interest of campuses like Esalen in multiple personality disorder (now called Disossiative Identity Disorder), and in this author's opinion, in studying the creation of this conditions using methods perfected by Tavistock, military intelligence programs, and cults like the Finders. These efforts are now lumped together under the term MKULTRA. Crabtree's interest in hypnotism, like the study of NLP which was tied to Esalen, also indicate the study and practice of Mind Control. Although this observation may seem self-explanatory, the importance of this blatant connection between Crabtree, dissociative identity disorder and the claims made in this post cannot be understated.
Adding to this, IIIHS and its affiliated groups were co-founded by Marilyn Zwaig Rossner, "a retired professor of special care counselling at Vanier College, Montreal, and has served on the faculties of McGill and Concordia Universities." This is significant because Mcgill university was infamous for its CIA-backed experimentation in the field of MKULTRA, especially in regards to the work done by Donald Ewen Cameron, as described in this article from the McGill Daily, "MK-ULTRA Violence."
Another faculty member of IIIHS is BennetWong. Wong is a co-founder of The Haven in Gabriola, as previously discussed. According to his wikipedia page he pursued education at "Menninger Clinic." Meninger clinic is notable for currently practicing electroshock therapy. The clinic is has been a "sanitarium" in the past. The Meninger Clinic is beyond the scope of this article but is a potential avenue of future research which I hope readers will look into further.
Bandler, The CIA, and Murder Accusations
According to the wiki page on NLP, a significant early figure in the field was Richard Bandler, who was also a student/acolyte of Virginia Satir.
Bandler was reported by the Santa Cruz news to have been a consultant to the U.S. Military and CIA specifically in regards to NLP, in addition to having been charged with murder. The repeated connections seen here between campuses who are members of the Centers Gathering with military intelligence, both CIA and OSS, is undeniable. One may wonder why campuses associated with the promulgation of studies in mind control techniques should have such intelligence ties unless they were being used or operated in concert with such agencies.
He was also charged (though acquitted) in the murder of prostitute and student Corine Christensen. A Report on Bandler's trial by the Los Angeles Times specifically mentions the CIA's interest in NLP. The second page is here and mentions the CIA's interest in Bandler's work specifically.
The article states: "Bandler's work also attracted the attention of the U.S. Army, and he gave three seminars in Washington, said Wyatt Woodsmall, a civilian research analyst for the Army at the time. Army officers and CIA agents attended the seminars, Woodsmall said, and he invited Bandler back to Washington several more times for consulting work. Bandler aided in projects on marksmanship, identifying leadership characteristics and classified intelligence work.
Bandler's affiliation with the CIA and prominent role in the development of NLP adds to previously observed connections between Esalen, The Human Potential Movement, The Finders and the CIA , and echoes the ties between the OSS and founding members of Findhorn.
The article also says of Bandler: "Bandler had a violent side. He threatened to kill his wife several times after she left, and he also threatened a man she was dating, his wife alleged in an affidavit....Cocaine had brought Bandler, Marino and Christensen together. Marino had been a drug dealer, he told authorities shortly after the killing, and, as he became a close friend of Bandler, began to supply him with free cocaine. Later, when Marino left the business, he said, Bandler bought his cocaine from Christensen."
This implies a connection between Bandler and the drug trafficking underworld, which is a well known facet of the CIA's activities, specifically in regards to cocaine. Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gary Webb published a series on this "Dark Alliance," after which his career was destroyed. He was eventually found dead with two gunshots to the head, which was ruled a suicide.
There are also implications that a sexual blackmail led to the murder with which Bandler was charged: "Christensen, 29 at the time, was working in a massage parlor, turning tricks on the side and blackmailing important people with sexual secrets. (In her apartment, authorities found leather restraints and a "trick list" on file cards listing sexual preferences of clients.)"
Once again, reference to the CIA, sexual blackmail of "important people" and even murder is tied to figures connected to Esalen and the "Human Potential Movement," through NLP and Bandler. This provides an ominous picture which includes not only ritual abuse and the drug trade, but also the control of (politicians and others) "important people" through blackmail. This has been described often in association with ritual abuse cases and also in the creation of child abuse material.
Considering the underworld ties of Bandler, it is significant that Virginia Satir of The Haven and Esalen is considered one of his mentors in the development of NLP. Unlike Bandler, Satir has a good reputation as a therapist.
"According to Bandler and Grinder, NLP comprises a methodology termed modeling, plus a set of techniques that they derived from its initial applications. Of such methods that are considered fundamental, they derived many from the work of Virginia Satir, Milton Erickson and Fritz Perls."
NLP's wiki page also states: "By the late 1970s, the human potential movement had developed into an industry and provided a market for some NLP ideas. At the center of this growth was the Esalen Institute at Big Sur, California. Perls had led numerous Gestalt therapy seminars at Esalen. Satir was an early leader and Bateson was a guest teacher. Bandler and Grinder claimed that in addition to being a therapeutic method, NLP was also a study of communication and began marketing it as a business tool, claiming that, "if any human being can do anything, so can you.""
Virginia Satir is mentioned in a list of early visitors to Esalen, on it's Wiki page - along with B.F. Skinner and Alduous Huxley. She is also described on this Bio Page: "As a therapist she helped to start the prestigious Mental Health Institute in Palo Alto, California..." According to this document, (which also makes mention of McGill and Tavistock) Satir went on Sabbatical at Esalen during the year 1966-67.
Bateson and Cybernetics At Esalen
Gregory Bateson was a significant figure at Esalen. He was a Cyberneticist which is interesting in relation to the transhumanistic and mind control interest shown by Esalen and Findhorn.
This reddit thread may be significant in discussion of Bateson and Esalen as connected to NLP. The post is titled "NLP was partially based on Gregory Bateson's work for the OSS (became CIA) and MK-ULTRA. Gregory Bateson continued to actively influenced NLP." The thread specifically describes Gregory Bateson as based at Esalen institute, also describing him as one of the developers of NLP: "
Gregory Bateson's Wiki page mentions that - similar to the founders of Findhorn and many prominent developers of the "Human Potential Movement," Bateson worked in a Psyop division of OSS. This is yet another intelligence, military connection to Esalen and the Human Potential Movement, which strengthens the conclusion that Esalen and the Human Potential Movement were founded, not to help people, but to study methods of increasing oligarchic control of individuals and the masses. The connection of Bateson to OSS specifically also echoes the connection of the founders of Findhorn to the OSS.
Bateson's biography states: "Although initially reluctant to join the intelligence services, Bateson served in OSS during World War II along with dozens of other anthropologists. He spent much of the war designing 'black propaganda' radio broadcasts. He was deployed on covert operations in Burma and Thailand, and worked in China, India, and Ceylon as well. Bateson used his theory of schismogenesis to help foster discord among enemy fighters." So this is an example of yet another figure at Esalen who not only worked for military intelligence, but specifically in the design of "black propoganda" radio.
This is significant in terms of Harbin and HAI global as well, whose founders had similar employment in the military as radio hosts, previous to their work at Harbin/HAI global. This is exemplified in Stan Dale of HAI Global.
Bateson was a core member of the Macy Conferences which discussed cybernetics.
It was pointed out by Tim McInerny that the Macy Conferences were specifically tied to the CIA, MKULTRA, and LSD experimentation in addition to Bateson's work for the OSS in black propaganda.
This is discussed in the book 'The Search for the Manchurian Candidate.'
Bateson and his more famous wife Margaret Mead are mentioned directly in an article about Anthropologists employed as spies by the CIA.
The significance here is that Esalen has a disproportionate number of CIA and OSS related individuals in its history, as does Findhorn and other Centers Gathering campuses.
Cybernetics refers to: "The scientific study of control and communication in the animal and the machine."The word cybernetics comes Greek κυβερνητική (kybernetike), meaning "governance", i.e., all that are pertinent to κυβερνάω (kybernao), the latter meaning "to steer, navigate or govern", hence κυβέρνησις (kybernesis), meaning "government", is the government while κυβερνήτης (kybernetes) is the governor or the captain. "
That this topic was openly discussed at Esalen, in combination with Bateson's previous occupation in creating "black propaganda" for OSS, is yet another indication of Esalen's real role as a campus which studied and pioneered methods of personal and mass mind control.
Bateson was also a member of The Lindisfarne Association, which was funded by the Rockefellers and associated with David Spangler. Spangler was intimately involved with the founding years of the Findhorn foundation.
This is also indicated by the description of cybernetics: "Studies in cybernetics provide a means for examining the design and function of any system, including social systems such as business management and organizational learning, ... Cybernetics was borrowed by Norbert Wiener, in his book "Cybernetics", to define the study of control and communication in the animal and the machine."
This combination of the study of mass mind control with technology explains the silicon valley interest in Esalen and Harbin, HAI Global etc. This is seen at Esalen, with Esalen Executive Director Ben Tauber, having been formerly employed as a Product Manager at Google. It also follows on from the Harbin & HAI Global connection to Cisco and Accenture via Lin Chase.
It is also demonstrated in Bateson and Stan Dale's use of radio broadcasts as propaganda. This is a very important connection to understand, as various globalist groups are currently using other technologies of mass mind control. Even Wikileaks founder Julian Assange described this process in his discussion of AI, social media, and control of the masses. Various media including RT reported on his statements.
Cybernetics is also described as including "communication and control in living organisms, machines and organizations including self-organization. Its focus is how anything (digital, mechanical or biological) processes information, reacts to information, and changes or can be changed to better accomplish the first two tasks. A more philosophical definition, suggested in 1956 by Louis Couffignal, one of the pioneers of cybernetics, characterizes cybernetics as "the art of ensuring the efficacy of action." The most recent definition has been proposed by Louis Kauffman, President of the American Society for Cybernetics, "Cybernetics is the study of systems and processes that interact with themselves and produce themselves from themselves."
This appears to correspond very closely with the interest Huxley expressed with mind control and mass mind control techniques. This is borne out: "The word cybernetics was first used in the context of "the study of self-governance" by Plato in The Alcibiades to signify the governance of people."
Bateson was one of the original members of the core group of the Macy conferences in Cybernetics, and the later set on Group Processes, where he represented the social and behavioral sciences. His association with the editor and author Stewart Brand helped to widen his influence. Brand was an early experimenter in LSD, which again had well known CIA connections. Brand founded the New Games Foundation and cofounded The Global Business Network. GBN's parent was the Monitor Group, which worked for Gaddafi's regime in Libya.. The Monitor Group has been affiliated with a large number of significant individuals, including Mitt Romney's son Tagg Romney.
Monitor's notable current and former employees include members if the British Intelligence Service, and Mitt Romney's son Tagg, as well as the 17th President of Brigham Young University-Idaho, a former CBS News President, and money other prominent figures.
Bateson's early work took place in New Guinea and Bali. This area was also significant for its links to The Subud Cult, which influenced mystic/cult figure Gurdjieff as well as John G Bennet of British Intelligence. Gurdjieff is also of significance to RA Anon's experience, which again emphasizes the link between military intelligence, "mystical"/spiritual leaders as part of the study of various mind control projects, and ritual abuse. This is paralleled by Cult leader Marion Pettite's CIA connection and leadership in the Finders Cult, which practiced ritual abuse. One cannot separate military mind control efforts from the practice of ritual abuse, as they are deeply interconnected in many cases.
Other examples include the accusations towards Michael Aquino, a military psyop officer and author of "Mind War," as well as founder of the Temple of Set. Aquino was personally accused of involvement in Ritual abuse during the Presido case, as well as accusations leveled at him from Paul Bonacci of the Franklin Scandal. Many posts on voat and elsewhere discuss these connections.
The important point in mentioning them here is the intersection of psyop military work, with accusations of ritual abuse, and the fact that Aquino founded a religious sect. This shows that discussions of MKULTRA are not complete without an understanding of the ritual abuse which is often used in tandem with it - and a discussion of ritual abuse is not complete without the context of military involvement in this activity in many cases; even in cases which involve 'religious' groups or cults, like the Finders.
Returning to the subject of Subud and Gurdjieff, who is tied to Esalen and connected to RA Anon's experience:
"Not surprisingly, there is a very close connection between Subud and British intelligence. In fact, thehead of British military intelligence for the Mideast in the 1920s, John G. Bennett, was personally responsible for the spread of Subud internationally in the 1950s. By that time Bennett had become the British intelligence service’s leading profiler of the world’s various mystical
sects. It all began with the Russian mystic G.I. Gurdjieff and his student P.D. Ouspensky, whom Bennett was assignedto monitor after World War I, when they migrated from Russia to western Europe. Bennett became a leading representative in the UK for the Gurdjieff method of the mystical “Fourth Way” to a higher consciousness. For the next 30 years Bennett taught the Gurdjieff method, while dabbling in other mystical sects along the way"
Such connections not only with the Founders of Findhorn but also in figures at Esalen lend more credibility to the testimony of RA Anon, and others who have posted on social media recounting MKULTRA and CIA related activities occurring in relation to Harbin Hot Springs.
More on groups and figures related to Esalen in the next post on this subject.
