- Dear Randy:
You shared some very interesting techniques in your response. I also
appreciated the poem in your last post. It verbalized poignantly
how wounded many former eckists are by these so called "enlightened"
and "tolerant" cultists and, in some cases, former "friends." In your
most recent post you said:

I too have just recently starting deprogramming myself. I allowed my
membership to lapse in 1998 but didn't officially resign until
Jan/01. Left to my own devices, I stopped using eck terminology and
chants altogether. I did continue to use some meditation and imagery
techniques that I learned in a university study awareness course and
from intergral yoga. I really interested your replacement/imagery
excercise for deprogramming/reprogramming Twitch BS. It sounds a bit
like a NLP (neurolinguistic programming) technique. I also liked your
yardstick for measuring which ick terms to continue using (ie anami).
I appreciated the legitimate eastern mysticism that Twitch
employed/ripped-off, but found it can be a slippery slope using the
terminology/techniques because they still tend to re-trigger the eck
"virus." I'd be interested in any other techniques that you've
developed and also sources that you've found useful in developing
these excercises. Keep up the great posts Randy!
