    While I personally was divided till now, his break down of the key issues has shed a lot of light. Besides for all that, it all means less to me than the honor of being the first to comment! Well done me!

    Amazing report

    This finally clarifies the issues. I re-read all the posts on the subject before reading here. Thanks to Rabbi Shea Hecht, Rabbi YItzchok Shochet who flagged up the concerns at the beginning bringing all this to light. Thanks to the Rabbonim who partook in the big asifa for enlightening everyone as well and bringing focus back to the table. And thanks to COL for exposing this and helping us all through it. Most of all thanks to Rapahel Aron for putting the many necessary nails into the coffin in burying this matter once and for all.

    Theraputic Sickness And A Shabtzai Tzvi

    COTS was nothing more than the realization of a disturbed individual’s “dream” of “healing” the world from HIS sickness. A man filled with contradictions and hypocritically posing as a ben Torah in order to create disciples and make money in so doing. A “rabbi” who was not one, “education” that was not therapy! The list goes on. Besides the psychological and hashgafa dangers of this man’s philosophy and practices highlighted, one of the most revealing aspects of this report is the founder’s refusal to discuss his religious beliefs and practices. How many would have attended his workshops had they known… Read more »

    Our community needs to figure out healthier ways to bring people joy and meaning in their lives. Otheriwise peopke will continue looking in all the wrong places.

    A good place to start might be a strong work ethic, kovia itim and less glorifying of the gashmious of the world.

    Wow.

    Wow.

    Very well written and clear. Can you please publish the letter from 1979 where the Rebbe discourages hypnotherapy. When I lived on Baltimore the community seemed to have no problem with a certain hypnotherapist in the community. Can someone please clarify this for me and all who read on COL
    Thx.

    Thank you

    You say our community needs to figure out healthier ways……. We have it ALL at our fingertips – all we need to do is open our eyes and look in the right places. It reminds me of the wife who had an adoring husband but all she cared about was hearing ‘false’ praise from her acquaintances –until one day when it was nearly too late – she realized that the compliments were self serving and her husband’s was from the heart and all he wanted in return was acknowledgement and some reciprocation. The couple worked it out eventually; there was… Read more »

    Hypnotherapy

    There is a letter from the Rebbe in the 3-volume “Healthy in Body Mind and Spirit” from SIE that discusses hypnotherapy. I’ll try to find it today and post.

    I had a quick read through the report, and my suggestion to people of all ages, is that if someone makes you do something you don’t feel comfortable with, leave and go and discuss it with someone you trust.
