WARNING.... please beware of the PSI courses! They will try and brainwash you and rob you. You can not trust anyone who tries to convince you to take the course. The best advice I have for you..is to not listen, to not get involved, or attend a PSI info session/course.
My older sister who I love and trust talked me into taking the PSI Basic Seminar. She was very persistent and relentless and would not leave me alone until I signed up for the PSI Basic in April 2008. This was very unusual behavior for my sister and I should have seen the big warning sign. I also should have listened to my intuition, because I did not have a good feeling about the whole situation. Plus she would never explain what the course was about and she just kept telling me "I had to experience it to know, and that she could not tell me anything." How crazy does that sound? (Honestly now looking back I can see she was completely brainwashed and was selling and is still selling to this day... the course for free and it is completely consuming all of her free time).
At the time I thought well I have nothing to loose and my sister wants the best for me, right? Wrong... how much did a loose $600 for the Basic Seminar and $3, 700 for the PSI Seven leadership course. A total of $4, 300! I was emotionally broken down and not thinking clearly and on the forth day of the Basic Seminar and they somehow convinced me to give them my M/C for $3, 700 for the PSI 7.
On Monday when I was thinking clearly and was no longer surrounded by brainwashing PSI zombies, I felt sick to my stomach and could not believe I had spent $3, 700 for a course I did not want to take. I called PSI on Monday and sent them a formal letter saying I wanted to be reimbursed the $3, 700 under the Buyers and Sellers Remorse Clause. I know my legal rights and I was not about to be ripped off from a cult. They will not reimburse the $3, 700 and they told me my only option is to get someone else to sign up for PSI 7 and pay me directly. What a joke... I would never want to put someone through that hell, or manipulate and sell them on something that I am completely against. I have integrity, I have values... which is what PSI preeches, but obviously they have no intention on following through with what they preech. I will continue to look into the Buyers and Sellers Remorse Clause and I will take legal action if I have to.
My sister continues, to be brainwashed, consumed and she is constantly spending every spare moment she has volunteering her time promoting PSI. I have not seen her in over three months; since she has been involved in this mess. She only surrounds herself with other brainwashed PSI believers. I have lost my sister, and my best friend to this horrible cult and because of this I feel obligated to warn anyone out there who is considering taking this course. I have never felt so ripped off, or sad at how it is affecting my sister in a negative way. (Although she is completely brainwashed into believing she is being empowered and PSI is laughing all the way to the bank! )
