NXIVM in decline? Only 12 5-day intensives for US and Canada for 2016

The Prefect uses charts to teach students.

In the US and Canada there are only 12 five day intensives scheduled by NXIVM/Executive Success Programs for the year. And only two 16 day intensives.
The number of scheduled five day intensives for Executive Success Programs by NXIVM are listed below for 2016.
Los Angeles has two. Vancouver has five.
San Francisco: one. NYC: four.

Both 16 day intensives this year will be Albany.

Since these intensives are usually not well attended by newcomers [coaches and NXIVM members who are paid salaries with Bronfman money are required/ urged to attend] the revenue anticipated from a year of these intensives is not much.

I remember when I worked as a consultant at NXIVM that the intensives had only one or two paying students and the rest of the class was filled with NXIVM employees who traded the cost of the intensives for work they did for the company.

More significantly there are on average one per month across the US and Canada.

This is not sustainable for a 18 year old life coaching company.

This low number of intensives suggest there are very few new students taking these classes and who could blame them? Anyone with the smallest internet ability could look up the history of this organization and the record shows this company is fraught with danger.

The NXIVM schedule shows me that NXIVM is in trouble – maybe it always was – and that when and if Bronfman money evaporates there will be no Executive Success Programs.

Also of interest is that there is only two  – 16 day intensive scheduled for the entire year.

Is this the end of NXIVM?

Of further note there are only 10 level two intensives scheduled for the year – all of which are to be held in Albany. This is not surprising since these are held for the benefit of  longtime NXIVM acolytes.

All told we have but 22 intensives – the hallmark of the entire organization’s operation in a year.  Since these have very few new attendees, this cannot be sustainable.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
