When you first join Training In Power, it’s under the guise of self-development. You’re learning “personal mastery”. You’re increasing your own self-awareness.

Like Scientology, TIP has secret rituals and information that is revealed once you have progressed and been indoctrinated long enough, but students are primed for that information from Level 1.
