Upselling, Crazy Staff

This organization in Lenox, MA should be shut down. This man who runs it, Andrew Cohen, belongs in a jail cell. He and anyone else who plagiarizes content of ENTIRE COUNTRIES and tries to pass it off as their own, should not allowed to sell that. I attended an event hosted by this organization when I was invited. I found the atmosphere very strange. There were a lot of people who 'worshipped' this man. He was a just short, bad tempered Jewish guy who pretended to know all the answers about God but was stealing ideas from Hinduism and passing it off as his own! He would not let anyone speak. There were a lot of strange people there - people who 'followed' him. They tried to convince you to take one of their classes or attend one of their events. They made it sound like it was glamorous but it was just more of this Cohen guy talking in a nasal voice and telling you why everyone else was wrong but he had the solution for religion! His own version where he steals other religious concepts and try to pass them off as his own! He was so full of himself that he wanted to be worshipped! The followers that I met included a guy called Morgan Dix, who was very pushy about this. He tried to convince me to join and when I showed uncertainty and questioned this Cohen's guy ability, this Morgan guy got very aggressive. He also would let me explore any other area. I found out that him and others like him just lived in that community, and kept selling these 'meditation' and 'spiritual courses' and lived off that. Since all this content is essentially plaigarized, shouldn't this community refund every person that attended their courses or paid for their books - containing content that they stole? Strange to first see the inner workings of that cult. Stranger to see how these people got away with it!

The woman who I dealt with, Aterah Nusrat, was an unpleasant, unhappy foreigner. She said she was in charge of “education” but all the books and materials they were publishing and selling were essentially plagiarized!

They were passing of ancient literature as Andrew Cohen’s own “unique” perspective. That is a serious con! How are such people allowed to operate in our country?! Have any of these people returned the payments they took from people who attended their events or bought their books of plagiarized content?

This Muslim woman essentially worshipped Andrew Cohen, a Jewish guy selling Hindu religious ideas as his own. She expected you to do as well! Who is the biggest thief and liar? Who is the biggest crook?

Andrew Cohen? Or his cult followers who lived in this “community” by selling “meditation” and “finding yourself” through plaigarized content they STOLE, did not give credit to and claim magically to have “come up with in visions” and other lies. Such cults provide people like this a way to enter and live in our country? They should be shut down, everyone they stole from refunded, and holiday serve some prison time.

For people like this who used this as a ticket to move here, they need to be deported. Clean it up!

Has this cult refunded everyone they cheated? Have they apologized?

Have they stopped plagiarizing content and publishing it as their own? Have any of the thieves and crooks in their “management” been held accountable?

How is Andrew Cohen still operating Enlightennext? Have any of his followers in this cult been legally held responsible?

Misrepresentation

This company is located in Lenox, MA and advertised as providing spiritual education retreats and workshops. I attended an event but found that the owner and teacher Andrew Cohen was shockingly lying to everyone. He took sacred religious texts and pretended that they were his own writing and ideas. He was also verbally abusive and bad tempered. I tried to ask a question but he wouldn’t allow it. He was very argumentative with everyone and his staff and community was like a cult! They tried to recruit me and when I declined, they were very aggressive. I didn’t ask for a refund and I am fine with that, but I was most disturbed by the lies and misrepresentation. Andrew Cohen did not invent Hinduism or come up with the ideas in the Vedas. Borrowing that and passing it off as his own while putting down everyone (everyone!) while he spoke (and allowed no interaction during a 4-hour monologue!) is dishonest to say the least. This organization Foxhollow and EnlightenNext published materials under his name - all plagiarized content! His crazy cult of aggressive followers lived off the sales of this at this mansion. It was a perversion of sacred religious materials and blatant misuse. All the people there profited from this and should be legally held accountable. I did try to call back but the number was disconnected and it appeared that the teacher Andrew Cohen had disappeared.
