Having not even heard of Vianna Stibel’s ThetaHealing™ till two days ago, I now discover it’s as entertainingly reviled as Scientology.
Rational Wiki (a familiar looking online encyclopedia dedicated to “analyzing and refuting pseudoscience”) says: “It was developed by Vianna Stibal, a naturopath who claims to have healed herself of cancer instantly in 1995. Not that IT CURES CANCER!!! or anything, except her followers think it does.”
Here’s a blog from Vianna’s ex-daughter-in-law, called ThetaHealing Revealed: The Fraud – The Cult – The Truth: To Protect Those Who Innocently Investigate ThetaHealing, which seems to have been created just for me.
Stump up the $550 and I’ll take the Basic DNA ThetaHealing course in January. That way we can speed up the process of finding out whether I will remain your sturdy-ish skeptic, or will insist on being addressed thenceforth as ‘Bindi’.
Just found your blog… thanks for mentioning mine! I’m curious to know if you ever attended a seminar, and what your thoughts are now.
Hi Lindsey. I wish I could be so thorough as to attend a seminar, but $550 (for a local, Melbourne interpretation of ThetaHealing) is beyond my means – particularly when I suspect the only good that can come out of it is an interesting blog post. I know your stance on ThetaHealing… did you attend one of the early seminars?
