Re: EK Contemplations Can Cause Problems Too!
- Hi, All!
I found Liz's reply to the question if Eck Spiritual Aides received
any special training intriquing:
Liz, as an ECK Spiritual Aid (ESA) did you have any special
training, or see any updates to inform or instruct you on
how to handle and talk to chelas having "special" problems
contemplating due to their meds or involving Depression,
schizophrenia, or Bi-polar disorder?
I know that other ECK Leaders were never instructed on
how to approach these problems and usually chelas were
referred to ESAs when they had "special" problems."
".... NOPE, no special training! In fact it wasn't until a few
years after I was an ESA did they change their approach to
handling these type of issues, by saying if we couldn't handle
the chela's problem then refer them to a doctor or counselor.
It was due to HK not wanting any legal problems, leaving
Klempankar liable for law suits. "
It seems to me that HK telling his ESAs to refer such cases
to a doctor only protects him and his org. What about the ESA
who is not trained but yet is left to make a judgment call?
Is HK and eckankar going to protect the Eck Spiritual Aides
from lawsuits? Doesn't sound like it since he didn't implement
any special training for them--just gave the ESAs the title and
license to decide a chela's fate regarding professional help
if needed. If anyone would attempt a lawsuit for a special
session gone bad, HK would have said that his ESAs were
instructed to refer such cases to a doctor--his hands are
Seriously, ESAs need to consider the possible repercussions
that their sessions with troubled chelas just might befall
them. They need to realize that HK is not going to protect
them in a lawsuit--he has only covered his butt! I don't
think aspiring to be an ESA is sensible in eckankar . . . and
those who are really should think about this and give up
the position!! They are putting themselves at risk! And
why? To continue to climb up that eck hierarchy, to be
important and to find favor with the delusional, selfish
and uncaring Klemp--frankly, Klemp doesn't give a damn
as to what happens to any of his followers, including his
special ESAs! It's all about him and only him . . . well, maybe,
he does care a little bit about Joanie baby as she feeds his
hungry ego the most!
Bottom line, ESAs should seek professional help so they
can understand why what they are doing is dangerous to
themselves and others!
