Shortly after moving to Maine, my daughter, then 19 chose that she would move from New York to Maine to come live with us before moving all the way to California. This was a huge change for her, and I was thrilled. I had worried constantly about her being so far away. The old rule about call me 24/7 was challenging to live up to, with so many miles between us. I knew that she was partying a lot in college, and at times I feared for her life. One of her friends from California suggested that she go to a PSI Seminar called “The Basic“. She trusted in her friend and did the class. When she arrived home to me in Maine several days later, my daughter was a totally different person. She was happy! She was focused and motivated. I noticed that she had changed. I remember saying to her “Hey I want one of those happy pills, what’s the deal?” She promptly called the LA PSI office and helped me sign up for the next Basic Seminar.
I was so excited to see what this was all about. As usual, I told my older sister all about it. She responded by telling me that it was just another seminar for people who need help finding their path. I remember her questioning how much money it cost. Annoyed, told she me not to sign up for any more classes. Her parting words were “Be careful and don’t drink the Kool Aid!”
