Hi sequitur...Thank you for you heartfelt post and important questions.
I am sure you have explored our - Friends and Family Members and the Cult Experience

I ask again, Is there anything that can be said that will help?
Yes absolutely, in measured amounts depending on how indoctrinated an RSE member has become.
It can be extremely frustrating to have any form of exchange with real meaning, as often the conversation will be hijacked by 'Cognitive Dissonance' and 'Confirmation Bias'... where all logical thought is sabotaged.
But I do believe that words spoken with caring, matched with reasoning do make it through although it may take years to have any real impact.
Speaking or reaching out directly to those closely embedded with JZ Knight is not recommended unless you are fully educated in the methods of sociopaths, even then its most likely a waist of time and very risky for your own well being. I remember meeting up with a former girlfriend and still a hardcore RSE supporter. I gently tried to open the conversation about our breakup and looking at our journey together. I was immediately shot down with a one liner..'Oh David stop living in the past' (This is a common deflection term used by entrenched RSE members )
The only conversation she was interested in was my building a business website and bouncing around banal niceties. Given any RSE member in that ‘State of Mind’ getting drunk on several bottles of red wine all hell is likely to break loose as buried emotions and upsets from previous un-resolved relationships or life events rise to the surface, also a mirror into JZ Knight's ugly past and world view.
I hope this helps…
Thank you again for your posts and sharing your insights on EMF.
