I mentioned this because of your reference to enneagrams.  They are prominent 
in his teachings.  I don't pretend to comprehend all his mysticism - don't 
need it.  I just was struck by the oddity of his behavior and teaching methods.  
Apparently he would push his followers to their physical and mental limits in 
bizarre ways to get them to reach a new level of what he called 
"self-remembering."  I guess it accomplished whatever his followers needed, or they would 
not have subjected themselves to such treatment.  As I said earlier - there are 
lots of strange people out there.
