Satsang was a smashing success. I was not closely watching the statitics, but our first Satsand had 35 attendees at one point, which is more than double the average that attended our old satsangs.
I even heard from one attendee that she tried to come to Satsang a year ago when Jo Ann was running it, but discontinued because she was told that all newcomers were being screened to detect and reject "negative energies." That is, each person had to go through at least two or three interviews with Jo Ann and Alan before being allow to come to Satsang. No wonder that attendence dropped to an average of 15 per satsang. There was so much fear of "negative energies" that the screening was offending a lot of people. I was wondering then why satsang was not growing.
