COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST 'THE AVATAR COURSE'

COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST 'THE AVATAR COURSE'
LOCATION: Florida, USA and International
LEADER(S): Harry Palmer, Avra Honey Smith, Shona MacDonald
AKA: Stars Edge International

We received a complaint about the Avatar Course that claims the program is being run like a cult. According to the complaint, Avatar organizers pressure new members to signup for more self-help courses to progress through the program. Also, according to the complaint, emotional and psychological abuse is used on members.

If you would like to file a formal complaint or have any relevant information to share about this organization, please contact us immediately.

Victim quotes:

"There is brainwashing from day one. As you get further in and become part of the group, various tactics of emotional and psychological abuse are used: gas-lighting, manipulation, control, reverse psychology... This actually becomes the essence of the teachings. It completely strips you of any sense of reality and identity and your sense of self is extremely compromised.

"You are not allowed to question anyone and Harry Palmer is considered God like! As you get even further into the group, people give up their lives completely for this organization. They miss holidays, time with loved ones, leave marriages and become bankrupt. It is not uncommon for people to get into debt of $30,000 upwards (some times even twice as much). Anyone who leaves is considered "psychotic" and shamed by the group. Shame is big within this group."

"Many who attend this course have had psychotic breakdowns, ended up depressed, anxious and even suicidal. However, they always pass it off as the persons responsibility and for some reason no one has been able to do anything about it."
