Subud Vision - Feedback

Edward Baker - Answers On a Postcard

People who leave before being opened. From Mike Higgins, August 9, 2007. Time 7:47

Just knowing how long people stayed in Subud would tell you a great deal. Did they quit before they were even opened? - i.e., during their 3 month probation period. That's obviously a different problem than quitting after they'd practiced the latihan for a while, especially since many of the article writers here seem to be assuming that Subud religious jargon and principles are turning people off. If this were true, most applicants would never complete their probation period.

My discussions with the Helpers during my probation period were not particularly stimulating but once I'd experienced the latihan, their explanations became unimportant to me (I never expected them to be able to explain it anyway). Have we considered that perhaps only a small percentage of people will take to the latihan, for whatever reason, and therefore the attempt to spread it all over the world is futile? But collecting the "market research" data you described would help us determine that. Thanks - Mike
