Complaint / review text:
PSI SEMINARS sells itself on creating an environment of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE within the group and then trying to spread it around the world. The irony here is that for the first 2 classes they have you go thru FEEDBACK ARCS where your peers and trainers tell you how you show up to the group. Most people break down into tears during this exercise not to mention the countless other exercises that make you truly want to change who you have been.
If PSI SEMINARS loved you unconditionaly then why would you need this feedback? Why would you need to change anything about yourself... They love you the way you are... Right? The conditions of unconditional love are obvious. It must last forever, it cannot change a person, and it cannot ask for anything in return.
Before you even graduate PSI asks for more of your money for enrollment for the next class! They even encourage you to ask for it from friends and family, or rack up charges on your credit card, if you don't have it!
They are basically saying... We love you unconditionally but unless you can come up with $4600 you can't come back! That is a huge condition right there!
Unconditional forgiveness can have negative consequences. Endless forgiveness for the same offenses rewards the offender and guarantees that the bad behavior will continue indefinitely. Forgiveness is often used as a license to commit the same offense over and over. Many women have forgiven their husbands for cheating only to find the adulterous behavior repeated.
Thus, unconditional forgiveness, which is a part of unconditional love, can open the door to victimization. An unending cycle of forgiveness means an unending cycle of abuse.
Unconditional and endless forgiveness rewards mistreatment and reinforces abuse.
It amazes me the people that go thru psi seminars come out expecting unconditional love but they don't even know how to give it first! If they did then no one would leave their husband or wife or lose friends and family over a 4 day or 7 day course!!!
