NKT Danger

Taking NKT seriously can be dangerous as well as expensive.

A favorite 'teaching' of NKT, as part of its business of fake psychotherapy, is teaching that we are not real and existence is not real. Reality is fake, we are fake, our family is fake, our job is fake, our feelings are fake, our education is fake. Everything is fake.

Of course, it's the other way around. NKT psychotherapists, clergy and founder thrive on fakery.

For many, this is a dangerous 'teaching' and dangerous psychotherapy. Many NKT Survivors have suffered significant damage from this NKT 'teaching'.

This 'teaching', in its effect to many, is also known as depersonalization or derealization.

Google these words. Results can be stress, panic disorder, shortness of breath, chest pain, paranoia, and feelings of going insane, losing control, even dying. Extensive discussion of depersonalization and derealization can be readily found. The symptoms match many of the problems hundreds of NKT survivors have reported, and egregiously then attacked for by NKT.

The hallmark of depersonalization is the sensation of being detached from your body—as if you're no longer inhabiting your physical self but rather observing it from a distance. You may feel as if you have no control over your actions. This terrifying feeling often is accompanied by thoughts and fears of losing touch with reality or losing control over yourself. Depersonalization can cause frightening physical sensations such as numbness or tingling. (Katharina Star)

Derealization involves feeling detached from your surroundings. You may feel disconnected from external objects in your immediate environment, including other people. Even your closest family members or friends may seem like strangers. Often people describe derealization as feeling spaced out or foggy. People and objects in the environment may begin to seem unreal, distorted, or cartoon-like. Others report feeling trapped by their environment or viewing their surroundings as surreal and unfamiliar. It could feel as if you're in a strange country or on another planet. (Katharina Star)

Symptoms of derealization include: Feelings of being alienated from or unfamiliar with your surroundings — for example, like you're living in a movie or a dream or a sense of hopelessness. Feeling emotionally disconnected from people you care about, as if you were separated by a glass wall. Surroundings that appear distorted, blurry, colorless, two-dimensional or artificial, or a heightened awareness and clarity of your surroundings. Distortions in perception of time, such as recent events feeling like distant past. Distortions of distance and the size and shape of objects. (Mayo Clinic)

Depersonalization-derealization disorder occurs when you persistently or repeatedly have the feeling that you're observing yourself from outside your body or you have a sense that things around you aren't real, or both. Feelings of depersonalization and derealization can be very disturbing and may feel like you're living in a dream. (Mayo Clinic)

Depersonalization and disassociation refer to a dreamlike state when a person feels disconnected from their surroundings. Things may seem 'less real' than they should be. These types of sensations vary in severity and can result from a range of conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder. The person may feel as if they are watching themselves from a distance. Some take on a different identity. The person is able to do a "reality check." (Medical News Today)

Depersonalization/derealization disorder is one of a group of conditions called dissociative disorders. Dissociative disorders are mental illnesses that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, consciousness or awareness, identity and/or perception—mental functions that normally work smoothly. When one or more of these functions is disrupted, dissociative symptoms can result. These symptoms can interfere with a person’s general functioning, both in their personal life and at work. Some people appear to be more prone to develop dissociative disorders, either because they are neurologically less reactive to emotions, or because they may have certain personality disorders. Many dissociative disorders are triggered by experiencing intense stress or trauma, such as war, abuse, accidents, natural disasters, or violence. (Cleveland Clinic)

NKT invites and relies on for its business followers already at risk for these disorders, and thus are particularly susceptible to NKT propaganda. Sexual abuse, dogmatism, risks to housing, disregard for mental and emotional health, denying reports of abuse, retribution, and bogus psychotherapy and family counseling are among additional threats inside NKT.

With any sign of these symptoms, please seek medical attention. Remove yourself from the cause. Be with friends and family.

 

Editors Note
It is egregious that NKT is subsidized by unwitting taxpayers.
