Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

I didn't realize this at the time, but on Daniel's old website he describes his therapy as follow: " Sessions are forty-five minutes in length. I do not ascribe to any particularly school of thought, except my own. My form of therapy is entirely talk therapy, face-to-face, non-directive, insigh...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

I think we have to put Daniel in the right perspective. Yes, he's a therapist and yes some of his ideas are radical when it comes to child abuse but he isn't an established filmmaker or musician or author. The impression I get is that it's more like a hobby than a career. I mean, the video song abou...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

I remember writing about that essay of a license for parenting at Daniel's forum. And the main problem is what the State will do when people are denied a license. The Black Market will flourish, trade in children will prevail and abortions increase. Any laws that come from above that tell people how...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

I posted the video link because it's from a movie, Network, from 1976. Now it's 2009 and its message still counts, more than ever, but people don't get angry for the right reasons anymore.

Besides Phil, Andreas Wirsén dropped out as well.

Re: A question about how you all handle or react to anxiety

Hi, Anxiety can be a lot of things. I don't think there's a specific way to deal with it appropriately. Many people try to avoid situations that create anxiety because it reminds them of something that they don't want to think about. For me personally, anxiety came in certain situations where I felt...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

I assume that you never got a reply from Daniel regarding your questions. Youtube is great to get a message out, but if you see the number of views, it's rather disappointing. Last year someone made a feature movie using his mobile phone which made it to film festivals. The technique is cheap today,...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

It's your loss not to read up on Janov. The link to Barbara's confrontation with Miller called "Escape from the Fog of Admiration" can be found here . Some very insightful replies can be found here , and especially Sabine's response was very interesting for me to read because of so many si...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

Hey Cesar, I never considered disagreement a reason to stop communicating with people, or to reject people who don't agree with some of my views. On the contrary I would say. Daniel changed his website but he kept some of the important threads, which you can find here . I offered at the time free he...

Re: Is the tide turning?

I basically agree with everything you wrote here. Most people in despair have 2 options: pills or therapy. Pills were and are still dominating in our society. If there are no alternatives, I would prefer therapy. Not because it would solve the problems, but the chances for improvement with human int...

Re: Is the tide turning?

You can say that medication and CBT therapy are two evils, but at least a human being talking to someone about his/ her problems is better than giving a pill and saying: it'll be alright. The side effects of mind-altering medication is a bit more than possible rotting teeth. How about a chemical lob...

Is the tide turning?

In Sweden the National Board of Health and Welfare has put out new directions that say that people with depressions and anxiety should get therapy and not medication. According to them, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) gives the same results as medication, but without the side-effects. They also con...

Re: Redirecting Self-Therapy (RST)

Glad to hear you've achieved so much through your therapy, Jimmy. Having a body that doesn't ache anymore is a huge victory. It's all about connections, being complete. You are on your way to have your autonomy back and you can start living your honest life according to your needs. I like to think w...

Re: Redirecting Self-Therapy (RST)

I think the reason why RST never got the attention it deserved, is because it's free for anyone and it would rob a lot of people out of work: psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, a lot of medical doctors, social workers, the whole pharmaceutical industry (which is wealthier than the oil industr...

Re: Miscellaneous Video

Any suggestions for the title of that subforum, Steve? It's worth having a subforum because I know a lot can be said about it. On the other hand, I feel that the subforum on Poisonous Pedagogy is the most important one and at the same time the least used. Being the agnostic I am (coming from atheism...
