John “Tubby” Miller and Mary “Moe” Miller’s Newest Enterprise
Warning!! Promotion of GWP's latest products and disproven claims at admirers' websites:
Phactum Newsletter (Philadelphia Assoc for Critical Thinking):
Typical of cultic groups when exposed, in GWP’s case by the Maine Attorney General,* the leaders will change stripes – in name or location – and pitch, to maintain control over followers, attract new recruits, and keep the money flowing.
* (See Home page for the Maine AG’s lawsuit against the Millers and the AG’s Consent Decree that put GWP out of business forever in Maine and took away their assets.) Disinterested Party critiques the latest nonsense from GWP followers: "Artifact Corner"
Now we have “new” organizations called Gentle Wind "Ministries" or Life-Systems or Family Systems Research Group, described in its publicity as “pick[ing] up where GWP technology leaves off….”; seemingly consisting of the same cast of characters who signed the AG’s Consent Decree. Little has changed – beyond the defensive disclaimers and sales now based on price (mostly *) instead of “donations” in the marketing of their wares. Surprisingly, they are still calling themselves “researchers.” Lots of complaining about unfair treatment and cybersmear campaigns against them. Same old distortions. Sore losers . . . Or just plain losers!
* (On the last page of the FSRG description, above, we learn that “a portion of each fee goes directly to the work of The Gentle Wind Project….”)
They still have “healing instruments” (now called “I Ching alignment instruments,” selling for $365 to $6,260); “telepathic healings” (now “distant alignments”); and offer “phone consultations [that] … may have a transformational effect....” The “consultations” seem to hark back to the “soul readings” GWP promoted and used on former members in the early 80s (which they claimed to channel exclusively from “the spirit world.”)
And, amazingly, hair samples and astrology * (now “behavioral astronomy” and “hexagram profiles”) are back – which is where GWP’s “Tubby” Miller and “Moe” Miller (then Claudia Panuthos AKA Mary Elizabeth Carreiro) and Tubby’s five female housemates, at that time, first began. Oddly, another GWP dinosaur has been resuscitated – transactional analysis.
* (Consumer note: You can download the “astrology” program used by FSRG for $400, or much less, and run it on your home computer indefinitely, plugging in each client’s date and time of birth, etc. See http://www.aureas.com – the URL on FSRG’s charts. Nevertheless, the shrewd people at FSRG sell charts to each client starting at $250 for “phase 1” and offer 3 phases for a total of $700.)
The authors of FSRG’s description are identified by the term, “WE.” Thus, former followers of GWP assume that “Tubby” and “Moe” may be continuing to affect that they’re speaking for “the spirits.”
These approaches worked successfully for the Millers in the past, yielding GWP’s “nonprofit” millions of dollars (see GWP IRS Form 990s on Home page), so here we go again. As they define in the world of recovery, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” Some of us have learned that lesson.
GWP / FSRG Address Update: According to the newest website from the Millers' GWP, (which they have now taken offline), they are in Starks, NV. Family Systems Research Group’s sales material (see above) listed an address in Portsmouth, NH (again, no website available) at the same mail-drop location used by the Millers during their failed Federal and State lawsuits against Jim Bergin, Judy Garvey, Rick Ross, Ian Mander, Steve Gamble, Ivan Fraser, and Steve Hassan. Yet, they are on the move once again, most recently in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
The Maine Attorney General's Consent Decree prohibits GWP's existence in Maine
and the GWP leaders from ever operating another Maine nonprofit. GWP (as Gentle Wind Retreat) was listed as a nonprofit just across the river in the state of New Hampshire, but the NH Attorney General ended that, too. However, their latest name, Family Systems Research Group, is not listed as a non-profit, so perhaps can more easily avoid close scrutiny. Last sightings of The Miller Family were in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
If you have questions or concerns, you might contact your own State's Attorney General.
