This isn’t new.

They have changed the system a few times in order to keep people in and the cash a flowing. It has happened with coaches/proctors who were working their way to Exploration of Meaning Practitioner [EMP]. Just before they reached EMP status, they changed the system and made them start at EMP 1 again.

LAST Coaches Summit, they were threatening this. They said that to remain an Orange (Proctor), you had to be an EMP (Exploration Meaning Practitioner) before they changed the system. In true NXIVM style, they never told us WHEN they were changing the system. That would mean extra time in classes ($$$$$$$$$) and they are only held in Albany ($$$$$$$$$).

This threat was also used to coerce people to join the University. It was sold as a fast-track to EMP. We now know that the only thing learned in University is grammar from children’s books and 1984. It definitely shook up the current Proctors, who pride themselves on being Orange. It’s all so laughably sad now to think it’s just part of the game Voldemort plays. It’s so smart though; just when people are leaving and the cash cow is no longer moo’ing…

I think they would be nuts to demote people after such a mass exodus. If I was on the edge of leaving, it’d push me out.

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.
