WB: Does Lifespring bear any
resemblance to EST, another popular human potential training
John Hanley: I've never done
EST, but I hear it's a good program. The difference is that
EST tends to be intellectual, presenting concepts rather than
experiences. Also, EST has a particular way that people must
do their seminar and a particular bent on where people are
when they come in and where they'll be when they come out.
Our focus is that people are perfect when they come in the
door and don't have to change anything. We just try to open
up the possibility for them to take a different direction
if they want to. At Lifespring, we're deeply compassionate
WB: What do you say to skeptics
who scoff, "Oh, here's yet another mind thing from California?"
John Hanley: I'd say, "I'm
not suggesting you need Lifespring, nor am I suggesting that
your life is anything other than what it ought to be."
I'd also say, "This mind thing from California has stood
the test of time. We've been around for years and we've gotten
results. Studies done by the best psychologists at the most
prestigious universities unequivocally support the following:
that people who take the Lifespring course tend to be more
effective and productive in their relationships, business
activities, etc. Call it 'a mind thing from California,' if
you like, but it works for people."
