Greater Jakarta: Gatot Brajamusti named abuse suspect
The Jakarta Post Jakarta Tue, November 15 2016
The Jakarta Police have named cult leader, and husband of singer Reza Artamevia, Gatot Brajamusti a suspect for the sexual abuse of several of his followers.
Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Awi Setiyono said DNA evidence supported the abuse allegations made by a number of his former female followers. “The suspect did not deny [the police’s findings],” Awi said.
Investigators have charged Gatot under the 2002 Child Protection Law and the Criminal Code, with a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.
One of his victims filed a police report in September after Gatot’s cult came into spotlight, following a police raid on Gatot’s compound in Sukabumi, West Java.
She claimed Gatot had raped her over the previous 10 years, starting from when she was 16 years of age….He is alleged to have used crystal methamphetamine in his ritual activities including having sex with many women….

RITUAL ABUSE IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY: Psychological, Forensic, Social and Political Implications Kindle Edition by Randy Noblitt (Editor), Pamela Perskin (Editor)
Allegations of ritual abuse are universal and mental health professionals, theologians, law enforcers, scholars, victim advocates, and others struggle to comprehend the enormity of the devastation left in the wake of these heinous acts. Ritual Abuse in the Twenty-first Century addresses the concerns that naturally evolve from any discussion of this phenomenon from the perspectives of professionals, advocates, and survivors from around the world. How valid are the survivors’ stories? Is there evidence? What are the consequences of these acts to the individual and society? Why have these allegations been ignored or discredited whenever they have surfaced? The authors of these chapters respond to these and other questions in an effort to illustrate the constellation of psychological, health, legal, criminal, societal, and spiritual ramifications of ritual abuse.
Amazon’s Look Inside allows readers to preview the first three chapters:
Chapter 1: Rituals: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Chapter 2: Redefining the Language of Ritual Abuse and the Politics that Dictate It

Curfew imposed in northern Liberia after ritual killings spark protests
Source: Reuters – Thu, 1 Oct 2015
MONROVIA, Sept 30 (Reuters) – Authorities imposed a curfew in a town in northern Liberia after violent protests following a wave of suspected ritual killings, authorities said on Wednesday.
Residents of Ganta on the border with Guinea said protests began after the killing of a motorcyclist on Wednesday. That came just a day after the discovery of the body of a 13-year-old girl who had disappeared weeks earlier….
The girl’s death was the most recent in what is believed to be a years-long string of ritualistic killings in the area that have been blamed by local residents on politicians and businessmen seeking political power.
Though relatively rare, cases of ritual murders have been recorded in several African countries, with body parts sometimes used in ceremonies believed to confer supernatural powers. Children are particularly sought out as targets.
Residents said violence erupted after two people who were arrested for the girl’s murder said a local businessman had hired them to perform it….

Ariel Castro, the Ohio man accused of keeping three kidnapped women captive in his home for a decade, pleaded not guilty today to 329 counts of rape, torture and murder.
A bearded Castro remained silent during his first court appearance since his arrest in May, keeping his head down during a brief appearance in which his attorneys entered a plea for him.

Priest, former teacher punished in sex-abuse case June 12, 2013
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A judge on Wednesday handed down prison terms of at least six years to a Roman Catholic priest and a former teacher in a sex-abuse case that brought down a Philadelphia church official.
The Rev. Charles Engelhardt and Bernard Shero maintained their innocence, and the judge threw out the most serious conviction against Engelhardt for lack of evidence.
Still, Engelhardt, a 66-year-old Oblate who had not previously been accused of abusing children, was sentenced to six to 12 years in prison. And Shero, convicted of rape, was sentenced to eight to 16 years….

On May 4 – 5, 2013
Survivorship will hold a conference at
Executive Inn & Suite
Oakland, CA 94606
Survivorship is one of the oldest and most respected organizations supporting survivors of extreme child abuse, including sadistic sexual abuse, ritualistic abuse, mind control, and torture.
Survivorship provides resources, healing, and Survivorship community for survivors; training and education for professionals who may serve survivors; and support for survivors’ partners and other allies. The organization functions as a lifeline for survivors who may be isolated emotionally or geographically. Through community outreach and training, Survivorship also raises awareness about these difficult issues.
The purpose of the conference will be to help survivors of ritual abuse and their allies. The conference will be for survivors, cosurvivors, helping professionals and others interested in this topic.
This year our keynote speaker is Steve Frankel.
Steve Frankel is a Board Certified Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and an Attorney at Law, who practices both professions in San Francisco’s East Bay. A Clinical Prof. of Psychology at USC, he began recognizing childhood trauma in his adult patient case-load in 1980 and has specialized in working with that population ever since. He joined the Int’l. Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation in the 1990s and was the consultant to the Trauma Program at Del Amo Hospital from 1993 until 2001. He was President of the ISSTD in 2002 and has been active in developing and teaching courses in trauma treatment as well as publishing chapters in books and professional journals in the trauma field.
His presentation is:
“Validation: science is (finally!) catching up to what survivors and clinicians have known for years.”
Dr Ellen Lacter will be presenting:
Therapists Reporting Histories of Ritual Abuse Trauma: Preliminary Results on Beneficial and Detrimental Treatment Approaches
Highlights of the pilot findings of this ongoing study will be presented, including: (a) responding to a client’s first report or memory, (b) making programming conscious, working with programmed triggers and suicidality, and resolution of programming, (c) working with ongoing victimization, and (d) the place of spirituality in therapy and healing.
Dr. Deborah Brenner-Liss will talk about “Trauma and Eating Disorders.”
Trauma happens to the body (as well, of course, as to mind and spirit). The feelings that one ends up holding in one’s body, before words, and/or beyond words, often affect how one feels in one’s body. The affects and toxicity from the perpetrator’s “energy” as well their as invasion(s) and intrusion(s) get lodged in the body. This talk looks at the intersection between trauma and manifestations of eating disorder symptoms as attempts to self-regulate in the face of overwhelming trauma, overwhelming invasion, overwhelming violation of bodily boundaries. The talk looks to address how recovery can occur, in the body-self, so as to lessen the need to utilize eating disorder symptoms in the service of this self-regulation.
Melisa Noel – The Natural Reassociation Method: Launching the Recovery Process for RA/MC/Torture Survivors and Their Allies. This workshop introduces the principles, benefits and paradigm shifts offered by the Natural Reassociation Method (NRM), a new approach to RA/MC recovery that capitalizes on our innate healing capacities. NRM is transforming how survivors and support persons view and experience recovery, while also improving results and sustainability for many.
Arauna Morgan, MA will discuss “Steps to getting Free and the Signs that you are there.” The road to freedom from the cult is long and arduous, but well worth the struggle. Through my own experiences of getting free and through talking with other survivors who have done the same, I find that there are similar stages that we all went through, even though our personal experiences were quite different. One significant barrier that stands out to me, for both therapists and survivors, is thinking that cult contact has stopped when it has only gone to a different level. What I present are the steps to recovery and what those stages look like to friends and therapists and the external changes that happen when freedom is achieved. This is geared for survivors and therapists.
Ani Rose Whalesman will present an in-depth look at a WHOLE-FIRST approach for healing work. The WHOLE-FIRST approach assumes that the relationship is where things happen, and equality exists. She will discuss Gifts and Skills from Original Wholeness embraced in an Integral Relationship. In this workshop, we’ll look at 20 plus skills involved in surviving severe trauma, This presentation includes tools for support people to connect more deeply with survivors.
Joyce Aubrey, MS. will discuss “Survivor Aftershock, Art & Advocacy”
She will present a Power Point of personal paintings created during my healing crisis of flashbacks to more than a decade of incest, gang rape, and family trafficking. Her painted images will show challenges commonly faced by survivors of extreme abuse. They will be a springboard for talking about overcoming obstacles and embracing empowerment. This is meant to inspire survivors of extremely traumatic sexual violence (and those who work with them) that healing to a new normal is possible and worth the effort and to model the strength available from working as a survivor advocate.
Sandra will speak about “What I Have Learned So Far.” With caring and believe it or not at times appropriate humour, the profound and subtle influences of RA are highlighted. Steps to bring awareness to the impact of and treatment methods for RA are offered.
Carmen Holiday will present “Connections.” She will connect some dots between the occult, Nazis, and the CIA. A contextual understanding of what happened to RA/MC survivors can be a critical factor in the defense against detractors of personal histories and the RA/MC movement’s integrity, and can play a pivotal role in healing. Knowledge is power.
Dave Staffen will talk about “‘So We’ve Been Betrayed and Satanically Ritually Abused by Those We Loved…..Now What Do We Do?” I intend for my talk to help victims recontextualize what happened to them, so they can look at their life and and their experiences in a different way. I am hoping to convey hope, courage and a sense of purpose; that what happened was not an accident. The feeling that when we are dealt lemons we open a lemonade stand. I will discuss the various stages I went through in my experience and how it transformed me from the person I was before discovering my truth, to the person who today wants to help victims, create awareness of Ritual Abuse and awareness of how Ritual Abuse causes Mental Illness.
Sarah Jacqueline will speak about: Exposing Satanic Abuse and The Hope of Healing. I will speak about my 15 year healing journey through memories of satanic abuse. How I can now live as hope, peace, and happiness. I have come to a freeing conclusion that it was an “illusion” that the satanists attempted to program through me about suffering, pain, and hatred. I now know and feel I am just love and anything other than this is illusion–this I speak about.

August 25, 2012 Comments Off on Upcoming Webinar: Sat, Sept 8 Janet Thomas “The Spirit of Healing”
Saturday, September 8
12:00 noon Pacific Time
Presenter: Janet Thomas
“The Spirit of Healing”
Janet Thomas will discuss her book, “Day Breaks Over Dharamsala A Memoir of Life Lost and Found,” a journey through spiritual healing from mind control/ritual/sexual abuse. The deep dilemma for survivors of extreme abuse is the fundamental estrangement from the sacred self. How do we reclaim it? Integrate it? Restore the sense of a spirited and nurturing self? How do we connect to the place inside us beyond and beneath our brilliant minds that nurtures and sustains us in our daily lives and in our relationships? These questions, and their answers, will be shared and explored.
Janet Thomas has been in active and conscious healing from ritual abuse/mind control experimentation for 25 years. Her parallel lives include many years as a poet, playwright, activist, magazine editor and author of non-fiction books, including “The Battle in Seattle The Story Behind and Beyond the WTO Demonstrations.” She lives and teaches in India and on an island in the Pacific Northwest.
