I got involved in a Mind Body programme called Heart Energetics or Core Energetics in Sydney Australia a few years ago. The programme was run by an ex-American called Robert Kirby who has since been described by some of his ex-followers as a Narcissist. He blended New Age concepts and Scientology concepts into his Heart Energetics training literature as well as on his website robertkirby.com.au, and describes himself as a transformation guru. This Kirby's marriage fell apart some 5 years ago and it was then he really started dropping hints and praising Scientology and Dianetics. He did this in a group retreat I was at, and my friend was a student in his Heart Energetics training programme, and I got and read his training articles and material, and Scientology concepts started showing up in all this. It all fell apart when Robert Kirby went to war with his State organisers, one of whom issued an email to students, exposing Robert Kirbys links to Sydney Scientology centre, and to organisations that would get them work in some form of energetics work. I checked with my therapist in Queensland who confirmed it was all true, as they had too been approached to get involved with scientology to cure their depression and issues. The organisers all fell apart and Kirby went his own way on his own with this new robertkirby.com.au website. In it there are uses of terms like "technology" which is straight out of scientology, 4 pillars, which mimics scientology use of "the pillars" to describe the base foundational concepts to hold up "the bridge" which you NED audit your way up levels to enlightenment or "lighter wallet ment" as you pay more money for auditing. He got involved in property and wealth creation psychology as if he is some expert. My Queensland contact reckons he does not own a car let alone his own unit which he rents in Sydney. His ability to teach you how to be all you want to be is not matched by his own failed achievements in life, which are all covered over by image management. He attended a scientology based business "Success Summit" o the Gold Coast in 2009 and 2010 which I guess is where he connected up to wealth and property gurus. However I know 2 people approached by him when emotionally vulnerable and told to get involved with Scientology and read the Dianetics book. It reminds me of the dudes on the street from Scientology looking for vulnerable people with their personality tests and hooking them in. I have researched his background and found all his degrees bar his MBA are psuedo-fakes from an "internet mill" or cyber-university where you basically pay money, and submit a token cut-and-paste "thesis" in order to get a BA, MBA, or PHD qualification, as I found out when I rang them up to find out how I could get a degree. He now advertises 3 such Masters degrees from Bircham University which is an unrecognised university, and if you google "Bircham University" with the word "fraud", you get articles exposing Bircham University as a sham. This compromised set of qualifications gives apparent great credibility to his image, his reputation, and website. If people knew the way in which you pay and obtain your qualification then I am sure they would be less impressed with him. He uses Scientology-like intimidation to intimidate you when you do not agree with him. I watched him tear own a person in front of others and has all the psychological techniques to bamboozle you. He is apparently a qualified hypnotherapist which fits in well with scientology too, and describes his support staff as "crew" a bit like scientology Freewinds ship and concepts. One of his support team has tagged along like a lost dog for over 10 years. This person has done the Core/Heart Energetics training programme twice, attended countless retreats, process groups, one-on-one therapy and now the 4 pillars and PTI's(Personal Intensives). In healthy psychology one "leaves home" and becomes an adult who is healed and independent. This lost soul keeps paying the money and confirms my suspicion that its all a cult based around the personality of the guru leader who keeps claiming personally that he is a mystic. His book "Filling Your Cup" has him claiming that he talks personally to 2 angels who guide him in his work. He uses all the "at cause" and reactive mind stuff of Scientology too. My experience is that he shows enough evidence of Scientology influence for people to be cautious. My Queensland contact told me that the WA organiser once went underneath Kirby's house and into his garage and found over 70 Scientology lectures in their own hard clear plastic enclosures lined around the wall of the garage. Kirby told him they were an unwanted gift and hunted him out of the garage. I just ask people to go in "eyes wide open" with this guy and his claims. Check all claims and be careful of giving him your trust or your mind or your money. He may possibly be a front gateway into the Scientology dudes out at Glebe Sydney.
