Falsehood: Hawkins Applied Kinesiology (a.k.a. kinesiology, k-testing, consciousness research, etc.) — muscle testing for truth — works.
Truth: The International College of Applied Kinesiology, its current and past two presidents, Dr. John Diamond, many devoted Hawkins students, as well as scientists, all know that it does not work.
Falsehood: The Map of Consciousness is a discovery that represents a new paradigm.
Truth: The map derives from L. Ron Hubbard → Lester Levenson → David R. Hawkins. It is plagiarized.
Falsehood: Mother Teresa, Sam Walton, and Lee Iacocca endorsed Power vs. Force.
Truth: As discovered by Hawkins’ biographer, Scott Jeffrey, and detailed in Power vs. Truth, they did not. The Mother Teresa of Calcutta Center agrees that Mother Teresa did not endorse Dr. Hawkins’ work. Hay House continues to use an altered quotation of hers to sell Hawkins’ books.
Falsehood: Scientific American and The New Yorker endorsed Power vs. Force.
Truth: Following Mr. Jeffrey’s revelations, Hay House and Veritas Publishing (Dr. Hawkins’ self-publishing company in Sedona, Arizona reportedly operated by Mrs. Susan Hawkins) now assert that the precise quotations initially attributed to Sam Walton and Mother Teresa instead come from these publications. However, they do not offer endorsements as such, as confirmed by a writer for Scientific American.
Falsehood: Hawkins established worldwide study groups.
Truth: The majority of these study groups are in the United States, followed by some in Canada, Australia, and several other countries. According to our sources, a number of these groups have only one member, several have disbanded, and most seem to have but a handful each. Apparently Dr. Hawkins did not establish them.
