Not resolved

I wouldn't go so far as to call PSI Seminars a cult, but it is a huge scam and pyramid scheme that taps into people's emotions to garner thousands of dollars from participants. Very little of what is taught at the seminars is life changing.

However, making people overcome with emotion by having them remember repressed memories influences many to continue to sign up for increasingly more expensive seminars and retreats. Like adherents to a religion, there are some who are fairly mainstream and others who are more extremist in following the PSI Seminar teachings. There are in fact some successful people who participate, and these people are often used to recruit participants by making people who show up to a talk or graduation event believe that anyone who signs up for the seminars will become more successful, wealthier, more personally fulfilled, etc. Of course, well off people can afford to throw away money and not suffer the consequences.

My pity lies with participants who aren't so well off. I met someone at the seminar who was struggling financially but believed that being in the PSI community was the ticket to a better life. Of course she made friendships there which made her feel better about her situation, but she was almost proud of the fact that she was able to scrounge together thousands of dollars to go to the PSI retreat when that money could be better spent in investment and savings. The motivational speakers at the seminar do not have any credentials in psychology, but use pseudo-psychology tactics on participants.

Instead of doing the ethical thing and turning away people such as the woman above who had nothing but would use all her savings to go to PSI seminars, the speakers encourage them to do so, making analogies about buying what you want over what you can afford without thinking about the consequences. Anyone with common sense knows that this is plain foolishness. It is no better than a *** artist selling a three thousand dollar bottle of snake oil. I cannot support an organization that overcharges gullible people into paying thousands for the PSI seminar course.

It isn't a cult per se, but I see a lot of similarities between PSI and what religious organizations and borderline cults such as Scientology do to recruit and retain members. I would not recommend anyone to do PSI. If you want to try it out, know that you can ask for a refund minus a small fee if you ask for it within 48 hours of completing the Basic Seminar. I doubt you can get your money back if you pay thousands to go beyond the Basic course.

If you want help with issues concerning things that happened to you in the past, see a certified mental health physician. For the price of the full PSI experience (over $10,000) you could put that toward individual consultation with a psychologist or marriage counselor.

And then the part where they had everyone making tulpas on the second day


It’s a joke. I’m embarrassed I attended. Much of what is spoken about, is common sense.


I agree. It is a joke.

I laughed when they licked the doors and would not let people leave. I called 911 and took care of that.


What happened? Did the police come?

Did the seminar continue afterwards? I agree it’s a joke. It smacks of being a cult. The vibe I got was very off-putting.

I can’t believe people fall for this *** I only went at the urging of a family member. He ended up doing the whole $10K thing.

Did his life improve? It didn’t change at all from what I saw.


I'm guessing the person that wrote this never attended the PSI courses and is in such self denial about their life. They could really use what PSI has to offer.

You need to be willing to be open and honest with yourself in order to get the most out of it.

Changed my life for from good to amazing. The best investment anyone can make is in themselves.


Sound likes a cult


I second that. It’s a joke, I attended with my wife.

It’s common sense. Just like the person above stated.

You preach not judging, and now implying we are in denial about life. Keep drinking your cool-aid.


I was open & honest...willing to give it a shot. But I recognized the tactics used were akin to brainwashing.

And they use high pressure tactics to buy the next level. Pressing me never works.


Program is great for singles - meet lots of down and out singles willing to wantonly share their past mistakes in exchange for a free meal/male and a bed.

Sick environment if you have any sense of self or pride or self-esteem. If you dont, perfect evnironment play in vegas sleep in LA, ski in Tahoe with people you hardly know and you dont want to know.


These LGAT seminars from Klemmer and Associates and PSI are designed to “yank your chain” feel grateful . The Klemmer and Associates testimonials on Google, just cracks us up.

These naive Christians paid ridiculous prices to remind themselves that they are not perfect, have guilt, low energy, directionless and have no desire to succeed.

Then the seminars woke them up and these Klemmer Klutzes pours praise and adulation on the seminars like I”I thank Klemmer”, “Klemmer showed”...blah blah

It’s like they were watching a movie. ZERO testimonials about what they paid for, how hard they worked, what they got...and what’s next ..zero personal responsibility in their testimonials!!

Yeah Klemmer and Associates were very effective in removing money from your pocket and having you Klemmer Klutzes thank Klemmer and Associates for it...What a Klemmer SCAM and a beautiful one.

If you are a Klemmer Graduate or a Compassionate Samurai - you can count on not being hired, and sure to be taken again emotionally or financially in the future.

You paid to be ripped off.

Can you hear Brian and Roma Klemmer laughing their *** off?


They manipulate us when we are most emotionally vulnerable in the class and sharing openly in front of our “klemmer family”. Then they hit us with more classes to pay for.

I would love to see Roma Klemmer or Kimberly Zink take a stand for what is possible by no longer paying their facilitator a bonus based on how many pay for the next class?

AND DECLARE that on their website.

WE no longer trust the facilitator because they are paid on Commission or bonus money for “moving on “ . Heard PSI seminars is like that .

Klemmer and Associates - PSI Seminars : 2 Peas in a pod - break the connection Roma Klemmer !!


Is Klemmer and Associates a Cult? Check out the google local reviews for Klemmer.

The clients rave about this company and consistently mention " THE WORK". What is that Klemmer Cult speak mean?

What is Klemmer and Associates - "THE WORK" that the reviewers are mentioning?

Evidently "KLEMMER's THE WORK" helps with PTSD ( so does owning a pet I heard ), it has "Unique TEACHINGS", taught by "Leader of leaders Kimberly Zink".

These CULTY KLEMMER reviews remind me of my teenage children raving about their favorite music idol.

seems convinced "Klemmer's THE WORK" is magical, and the facilitators are the best.

Isn't that definition of a cult ? Loyalty to a charismatic leader, a process ( THE WORK ), and its all seminar jargon while the rest of us poor lost souls struggle with life?


You nailed PSI Seminars. LGATS /personal development / leadership seminars definitely have "buy the next class " mentality. Insight and Klemmer Leadership workshops likely fall into these LGAT....but PSI has to be the mother goose of LGATS

Thank you for your review


Thank you for the well written, accurate review.

I recently attended the basic seminar and agree comepletely.

This is an expensive seminar cleverly designed to recruit people to attend much more expensive, time consuming "seminars"

You are you. Are you ready to learn about you? Are you ready to figure you why you feel emotions? Are you ready to be brainwashed into thinking that you shouldn't feel hurt when you are hurt?

Everything that happens to you illicits a response of some sort. That defines you. If you can access your subconcious and change the first few years of your life, you will be able to do ANYTHING!! Good luck with that.

How about spending time with your friends and family that care about you, and that you used to care about? If PSI helps you to be a better, more successful person, why do you have to rely on your amazing, new friends instead of yourself? Why is the support you receive from the complete strangers in your class so much more valuable and important than the love you get from the friends and family that used to be close to you? Yes, this is what it is like.

Wake up!!!! You have one life, don't waste it trying to change who you are while blindly making other people rich.


I recently attended a PSI Seminar at the urging of a friend. I went in with an open mind and positive outlook.

I tried SOOOO hard the entire weekend to find the positives and not be judgmental but in the end when I finally let myself be honest I had to say, I freaking HATED it! Group consciousness is not at all my thing. It wreaked of MLM/pyramid scheme mentality. Spilling your guts, crying and wailing then dancing to cheesy music...UGH.

Don't waste your money. Find other more productive avenues of self growth!


Spot on, I went in opened minded as well, the entire staff working or as they call volunteer’s were phoney looking to close the deal. They should be put on 60 minutes!
