Re: Meditation - baby and tub?

As to occult worship: I can only find that in the 'doctrines on top of basic meditation'. Again, basic meditation can be found in ANY religion and if you are now of the opinion that religion itself is always evil then we are at odds. So IMHO you are throwing away the baby with the tub. Hoping for m...

A very interesting view snowman, and perfectly plausible. What have you seen that has led you to that conclusion. I'm glad you found it interesting, Alban. I have chanced upon people from time to time whom I knew during my time in the SES and St James. Some have been my peers from St James who cont...

I predict that the SES will change quite dramatically over the next 10years. There will be factions that continue to follow the rigid dogma of the "old" SES ideology using logical constructs in an attempt to fathom the deepest spiritual instincts of humanity. I predict that these factions will be de...

Hi ADG, Yes lots of people here attended the inquiry, myself included. I think that there is a predictable lull in discussion as for many people it has been a great deal of hard work emotionally. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating and we wait with quiet anticipation for the findings of t...

Yes, I did get it wrong about whether it was your mother or your father who had an affair. I couldn't find the original thread where I'd read that. It was your father. Well, like I said, I'm really sad for you. But it still isn't clear to me (I obviously didn't have the benefits of a classical educ...

Ross, Thanks for your fascinating post. I posted on 28 Jan this year my take on the organisation and it's founding principles, morals and ideology in relation to the schools for children and treatment of women. I have searched for this post and it seems to be missing entirely from the forum. I have ...

Snowman says an SES man ran off with his mother and nobody in SES helped. That's a real allegation. Mind you, his anguish extends to blaming the SES for moral culpability which presupposes a sort of closed community with a central authority over every aspect of people's lives. Which, as I understan...

Keir has?encapsulated one of the most insidious aspects of the SES: the vanity of 'being in the know' Gandalf, in this last post you are quite nicely EMBODYING the vanity of ?being in the know? yourself. We get it, you used to drink sherry with Lambie cause you were so high up in the hierarchy. Big...

Dear Henry Thank you for joining the discussion and thank you for reminding us that former St Vedast and St James staff had (in many cases) lives before St James and St Vedast were formed. Reading your initial post made me very sad - not for you - for Mr D. The man you describe sounds like the kind ...

Well said, Kier That teacher who had a mental breakdown was at the time my formteacher and I don't remember being told anything specific as to why he left other than he was ill. Naturally the unhealthy close-knit SES community soon had the grapevine blowing in the breeze of rumour and we all soon le...

This is quite an extraordinary move by the governors and one that is certainly going to provoke great concern amongst interested onlookers. A deadline has once again been arranged which, as sugarloaf points out clearly, is entirely unworkable to bring about a fair and representative conclusion. In m...

Hello ET, I was in your opposite year (I think that I have identified who you are correctly) and I am glad for you that you have found this forum and have found some benefit in it already.

I am not sure that many people are aware that there are new 'St James' schools being created around the world and that the 'St James Philosophy' is being peddled to all kinds of state and private schools around the UK. I find this particularly interesting for the simple reason that the SES is being ...

Hello Katharine, I think we are all agreed that this thread began on a difficult footing and that you have admitted regret for your carelessly worded messages is courageous and humble. Courage and humility have been lacking in respect of the stance that the school has taken. I think that for such an...
