“Modus Operandi of Religious Cults and Large Group Awareness Training”
by Robert Chaen

Talk Outline:
My experience coaching-counselling-mentoring Youth – which is the 2018 ICSA Theme.

3 Biggest Youth Problems:
1. Sexual harassment, drugs-alcohol-internet addictions
2. Jihadists (20,000+ foreigner youths have joined ISIS), extremist, racist cults
3. Mental illnesses.

5 Youth Solutions:
1. Entrepreneurship
2. Learning
3. Charity
4. Mental Health
5. All Creative Arts forms

I believe the best way to solve the 3 biggest Youth problems is to focus Youths’ interest on positive activities such as all creative arts, learning, charity, entrepreneurship and mental health awareness – and shift their focus away from drugs, alcohol, gaming, internet addictions, jihadist cults and religious fascism and extremism.

The Same Modus Operandi of Religious Cults and Large Group Awareness Training: 
The Cult Bait
(free food, talks)

The Cult Kill
(stereotyping the degree to push the follower)

The Cult Slavery
(long-term strictness, daily brainwashing), including some case studies

In my 2 sessions I’ll be briefly sharing my personal stories as the World’s Second Chinese Religious Cult Leader with Brahma Kumaris (aka BKs), and as a ‘Course Junkie’ and Asian Pioneer Promoter of Large Group Awareness Training (LGAT).

I was an Ex-Brahma Kumaris (1979-1989), World’s First Chinese BK (with my brother, Tom, and his ex-wife Sister Maureen Chen), and Co-Founder of Brahma Kumaris Malaysia (founded in 1981). BKs have more than 825,000 regular students, with over 8,500 centres in 100 countries (figures circa 2008), and is a registered United Nations NGO.

My expert summary prognosis is Brahma Kumaris is a dangerous cult. BK’s god Shiva Baba is obsessed with extremely weird, delusional ideologies of sex and celibacy such as BKs believe 5,000 years ago all humans and Earth were perfect and all perfect living beings, lions, and lambs reproduce without sex for 2,500 years – here on Earth.

Shiva Baba brainwashes BKs in daily ‘Murli’ classes and ultra-strict ‘Shrimat’ principles not to have sex or children as he predicted it will be The End of The World soon by 2036 – resulting in silent separations and massive marriage failure cover-ups. I have helped and advised many families of BKs in Cult Mediation and through my Social Media Cult Alert, Facebook public groups, and YouTube channels.

I will share my connection with Founders of ‘Hard-Selling & Enrolling’ LGAT groups such as the late Alexander Everett (‘The Father of Human Potential Movement’), Werner Erhard (Founder of EST, Erhard Seminar Training which later became Landmark Forum), Robert White (Founder of Life Dynamics), Chris Gentry (Founder of AsiaWorks, one of the largest LGAT in S.E. Asia, and Ex-Life Dynamics Coach); and softer and more empowering LGAT groups like Chris King of Wings Seminars.

I have listed Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU) under the Religious Cult Category, and the above groups under LGAT Category in our Saving 72 Virgins Top Cult List 2018I founded Saving 72 Virgins Platform in 2017.

Watch my Video on My CULT Confession: Landmark, Asiaworks, Lifespring & other LGAT & Charismatic Cults

I’ve joined the International Cultic Studies Association, and now have access to Top International Cult Experts. This will be a steep learning curve for me in this new field of Cult Mediation. I’m very sure many of my Cult videos and articles will need professional fine-tuning, use more effective strategies and best practices which will get best results in returning Cult Members back to their families and friends.

My purpose in role in Cult Mediation is to touch a wider social media audience awareness, rather than individual 1-on-1 cult mediation services consulting. Although my best learning opportunities and practice is likely to be more involved in 1-on-1 sessions and talking with families of Cult Members and Ex-Cult Members.
