We have to give credit where credit is due.
The following post was compiled from information that originally existed on Lindsey Stock’s now-deactivated website: donttreadontruth.wordpress.com
In the post you are about to read, Lindsey had originally taken the time to draw the correlations that exist between Theta Healing and the notorious Heaven’s Gate cult, which tragically claimed the lives of 39 people in 1997 in San Diego. As you will find, the comments made from members of both groups are disturbingly similar. These parallels are not merely coincidence. They are the statements made by members of cults.
Make no mistake about it: Theta Healing is a cult.
Take the time to read the quotes and accounts from members of each group below. And check back to this site as we will soon be doing a post on all of the ways that history and development of Theta Healing nearly mirrors the history and development of another very famous worldwide cult: The Church of Scientology.

♦ On March 26, 1997, near San Diego, CA, Marshall Applewhite led his followers of Heaven’s Gate® to their deaths, via suicide. They believed that the world as we know it was about to be “recycled” to start over and make way for a new civilization. When the Hale Bopp comet got closer to Earth, they took it as a sign that it was time to leave their “vessels” (bodies) and move on to the Next Level. While preparing for their eventual ‘turning in of their vessels’ (their bodies), they spread the word to others and chronicled their journey, which included their final words on video- later released to the media. 39 people took their lives that day, but there are still followers of this cult even today. They believed Applewhite to be Jesus reincarnated as “Do”. http://www.heavensgate.com/
♦ In 1995, after allegedly being diagnosed with cancer, Vianna Stibal purported to heal that cancer instantly and spontaneously. From there she created a technique called Orian, later named ThetaHealing™. Vianna claims that using this technique that you can heal anything- mentally, physically, emotionally as well as inanimate objects. Members are taught that through her series of classes that you can receive a Doctorate of ThetaHealing, and that in one of her ‘upper’ classes, you can learn to walk through walls and refill liquids. All are taught that healings are instantaneous and, if they’re not, then you must do “Belief Work” to fix your personal blocks. To date, ThetaHealing reports members in the thousands throughout several different countries.
