Hami:

I've been working together with Alan at the Fountainhead for a few years now, and I'll be at the cascade retreat as a trainee. Glad to field any questions you might have.


Sure, I just posted a question for you on the DhO that I'd like to cross post here:

Maedhros:

If I were to offer you an anecdote like you requested, I can tell you I have personally achieved a number of awakenings beyond '4th path', as have many others in the Fountainhead.


Noah:

If Hami/Maedhros is reading this, I would love to hear more about this! Please feel free to PM me if you feel that that would be a more appropriate means of communication.

This is all very interesting :)
I liked the emails, but I was definitely reading their tone as tongue in cheek, which gives them a different (and apparently, intentionally so) vibe.
And salesmanship or not, the price is excellent. I know, because I'm a poor social worker. (Well, maybe the price just looks so good cuz of the exchange rate?? ;) )

ETA: if only it didn't cost so much to fly across the pond... hehe

Hi Noah, I sent you a PM.

I would caution against the statements made that we have seen this all before. When we speak in generalities, than it is true that all methods of awakening present the same ideas. However it is appreciating the details that make all the difference in developing spiritually. There are degrees of excellence in how ideas are presented - one makes a grave error in assuming teachings are all the same. In particular it is very important that one is able to engage with a teaching and its community and personalize it to one's own individual narrative. Otherwise it is nothing more than dead concepts and ideas.

As to Deklan's point, I'm neither white nor (very) weird! ;)

My question is this: will the research generated by the Fountainhead be peer reviewed in any way?

Certainly. The people in charge of the program are peer reviewed academics themselves.

Cool, Hami. So I'm now curious about where - which academic journals?

(I was curious, too. I don't know what journals even exist for this domain of study.)

The guy in charge is in the Psychology field, I would have to take it up with him. But honestly, we are thinking long term here - this research would be done over a good number of years. The research questions are still being defined at this point.

Well then, that violates my homespun, red blooded American need for immediate gratification :P
