Sexual abuse! Brainwashing! Corruption! All accusations against the creepsters of Dahn Yoga (see previous articles) which proved too much for its brainy leader to handle – he’s cut and run! Ichi Lee announced his resignation as CEO of BR Consulting, the corporate consulting side of the Dahn Yoga cabal. Mr. Lee released a “transition” statement last week on the Dahn site where he explains the pain and suffering he’s endured from “slanderous actions” and negative media coverage, and how he’s handing over the Dahn debacle to “students” so he can begin his “second life”. Lee and his lawyers still deny any wrongdoing, but this cut and run, “need to spend more time with the family” maneuver sounds mighty fishy!
As a result of the religious biases and selfishness of certain individuals, an organization that has showed the world the unique spirit of Hong Ik heritage and tradition has been damaged. I hope that such mean-spirited actions will not be perpetrated or tolerated in the future. The slanderous actions and sensational gossiping to the media by some people have unfairly targeted organizations involved in the meaningful work of sharing our spiritual heritage in an inter-cultural setting and I wish it would stop, once and for all. I hope that everyone can use the infinite creative power of their brain to create a better world with hope and conviction, rather than to justify their own victim mentality. I hope that my resolution today will become the foundation for creating an atmosphere of harmony.
