What is Large Group Awareness Training? It’s a form of group “therapy” that promises it can cure almost anything going wrong in your life. It’s so ubiquitous, some major corporations pay for their staff to take the courses.
Large Group Awareness Training is on the rise. We live in a time when decreasing religious adherence, a growing need for order and rules in one’s life and a sense of complete entitlement have combined to make the allure of LGATs nearly irresistible.
I spoke with 3 ex members of Large Group Awareness training students about their experiences. They explained:
Why anyone would tell a group of strangers about the worst day of their lives
How meditation, team building exercises and attack therapy combine to make people feel invincible
How these groups give students a sense of euphoria, then ask them to sign up for more courses
