Shocking photos cause viewers to ask, “Did Keith Raniere hypnotize TV star Grace Park?”


Some sources deny that TV actress Grace Park left her high-paying job at CBS as co-star of the hit TV series Hawaii Five-O, because of her involvement with Keith Raniere, the self help teacher from Clifton Park, NY, that some call a sinister cult leader.

We want to take those people at their word, but none of them will go on the record.

Mr. Raniere recently lost most of his students in Los Angeles and Vancouver after revelations that he uses hot iron branding to sear his initials on his female student’s pubic regions – and employs blackmail to keep them from speaking about it.

Miss Park lives in Vancouver and was born in Los Angeles.

In the wake of the catastrophic loss of paying students, Mr. Raniere tried to shore up his faithful female followers to stand at his side. No one knows for certain where Miss Park stands since she has not made a public statement. But just as the mad exodus of students was at its peak, CBS news announced that Miss Park is leaving Hawaii Five-O.

Meantime, the immensely popular actress is being used to endorse Mr. Raniere on You Tube and on Mr Raniere’s websites.

Her fans can see her interviewing Mr. Raniere on a number of videos where he proclaims his teachings and Miss Park clearly appears to be appreciative of Mr. Raniere.

A sample on YouTube is called The Nature of Living.

Watch the whole video: 

According to the Executive Success Programs website, this video is one of many interviews between NXIVM founder,Keith Raniere, and Miss Park and other notable personalities.

While the conversations are described as “informal”, the website claims Mr. Raniere “…tackles some of the hardest ethical and social issues unfolding on the world stage.”

We do not know where Miss Park stands but “The Nature of Living” is a fascinating video.

People might find it of interest to watch the video with and without the sound to get an indication of how Mr. Raniere uses his head, eyes, and body language to communicate.  Also be sure to watch how Miss Park reacts to his various non-verbal communication techniques.

Frank Report took a series of screen shots to make a visual presentation.

Frank Report recognizes that people blink and any random selection of still shots from almost any video will show people with their eyes closed, or half closed, even when they are completely alert, because they are blinking.

The purpose of these screen shots is to show how Mr. Raniere interacts with a student and perhaps on more than one level.

You can see for yourself by watching the whole video.

The captions below the screen-shots are not meant to be an accurate summary of what Mr. Raniere was saying with words. Instead, they are meant to suggest what Mr. Raniere may be trying to communicate on the subconscious level with looks and gestures. And how his subject is supposed to feel:


Keith Raniere sets the stage. Keith: Look at my hands.
Intently listening.
He charms.
He makes a serious point.
His ethical humanity is compelling.
Keith: I am ethical humanity.  Grace: I hope so.
It is worth considering.
Look into my eyes.
I am.
Now I look away. For I would never hypnotize you.
Dive deep within.
Higher consciousness.
Very deeply, deep, deep… .
Now, alert.
Now, let us always consider things carefully. I am the most conscientious of thinkers.
Consider this.
Doesn’t it all makes sense?
Now, you think about it. I would never want to influence you.
I am, of course, the smartest man in the world.
He is the smartest man in the world.
I know all the answers. They come deep from within.
I understand.
It all makes perfect sense now.
I am connected to the earth.
I listen to everything you say because I care deeply about you.
This is overwhelming; he means so much more than I ever realized.
Don’t I know it?
Now, let us consider and deeply ponder.
Now, look into my eyes.
I will now spout an unintelligible platitude meant to appear as a sign of my deep brilliance. If she buys into this, she’s hooked.
Now, think and think again. It’s true, isn’t it?


I have something more to say.
It is true. It has always been true.
Intense, I am.
This is so profound.
Now, feel the superior Vanguard for he knows all. You will never be the same.
I so totally understand.
My eyes tell it all.
I finally get it: Vanguard knows all.
Yes, you now understand…Now, look into my eyes.


Don’t look now but I am now prepared to accept your undying obedience.
See how sweet I am. Be lulled into my sweetness.
I am energy itself. Glory unto me. Think of this always.
Where is my energy going? It’s like someone is taking it; I need the Vanguard.
I am always here when you need me – especially if you need to share some of my energy.
Energizing, wonderful man. He’s is so amusing. The funniest, smartest man ever in the world.
Do you understand me now?
I can say nothing in his presence. I am humbled.
Pay closer attention.


Is this.. the… the …. right… right… hand gesture?


It’s so intense.


I now understand what he means to the world. I never saw it before.


I am pure compassion. Now, you know.
Now, I know.
It’s all about being ethical.
But I am also just a humble, lovable, perfectly wonderful, marvelous Vanguard. Nothing more. Just a humble, great guy.

  • I don’t see ANYTHING special in how this looks, what he says or does. Even the fact that he sleeps with a lot of women doesn’t impress. Rock Stars and actors get much better looking women without hypnotizing then for years. Everytime I watch his videos, I think he’s a “fertilizing” the air with his bullshit and don’t see how anyone falls for it.

  • I find myself being the only one on this site to defend Keith from a group of vicious haters. Keith cares about every one of you. You could come back and he would forgive you. He knows who every one of you are. He not only knows everything you have done in this life but he knows all your past lives and probably all your future lives.
    He is the most compassionate forgiving teacher. Come back to him. Ask for his forgiveness. Realize it is Your Ethical Breach. Have faith in his forgiving nature. Even if he punished you it was like a good father who disciplines his child for her well being.
    My heart breaks for every one of you women. I know deep inside you know you want to be back with him. You miss him every day of your life and you know it.
    Don’t you think Lucifer himself wishes he could start all over and come back to God?
    Will here is the difference. You can come back. Be humble. He will accept you back.
    Isn’t it better to be branded by him out of love than branded a traitor and fool by the outside world. In the end the world will cast you out. The world is cruel.
    But Keith and Keith alone will never forsake you. For he is the Vanguard.
    Come back sisters.

  • And you will find thousands of pages about pacing (subtle mimicking of someone else’s body language to gain their confidence) and leading (gestures and language tricks to communicate and persuade).

    Raniere studied hypnotism, and was ecstatic on discovering Nancy Salzman with NLP training, at an exploitable low point in her life (just divorced with two children).

    NLP is vastly overhyped, but hypnotism, in the general sense of circumventing the higher brain functions of critical thinking, is under appreciated. Google “Ericksonian hypnosis” for some eye-opening stuff.

    And in a 5 or 16 day “Intensive,” with 14 hour days in a cramped room, with minimal food provided, pretty much anyone will have some moments of weakness where they drop their guard and absorb what is presented by the well-drilled and confident trainer, carefully chosen and groomed to be appealing.

    Don’t be too critical of the victims, the training is focused at the emotional and instinctive level, not the rational level. Even the most intelligent and educated still have emotions and instincts, which preceeded and override the rational.

    If Grace went through Ethos, she had hundreds of hours of conditioning that Raniere is the smartest man in history, and to accept all of Raniere’s memes. And every single lesson ended with “Thank you Vanguard. Thank you Prefect.”

    So she was in awe of actually speaking with him, and easily fell in line.

    • I took several high level trainings with Grace Park. She is completely indoctrinated and would stay at Esther Chiappone’s house in Clifton Park when in Albany. From what I heard she is in support of the branding of DOS women and doesn’t see anything wrong with it.

      People in NXIVM who know her should call her and ask her? She is supporting with this video. As long as it’s up we know she is in.

  • Keith Raniere is an extraordinary hypnotist. How do you think he gets seemingly normal women, some successful, some wealthy, to do outrageous things? Degrading things. Acts in their previous life they would have considered abominable?

    This is how. Once you work closely with Keith, with any alone time, you are totally screwed. He is implanting hypnotic suggestions and hypnotic triggers in every one on one conversation. If you are like Allison Mack and have been working with him alone for a period of one or two years or more. You lose all control over your life and you can’t possibly understand what is happening to you. Allison Mack and many others have lost all control of their subconscious minds, and practically their free will.

    Beware. Hypnosis is where Keith Raniere has put 99% of his intellectual capacity and efforts. This is real. Executive Success Programs, DOS, and all it’s offshoots are his playground for experimentation and perfecting his technique. He doesn’t care if those business are successful. Obviously. He never did. That’s why they all fail outright or are hopelessly in the red. What Keith Raniere cares about is making the communities created by his “movements” his laboratories for hypnosis.That is what drives him and that alone.
