Marty and Monique Rathbun

We’ve been wondering lately about Marty Rathbun’s flair for self-promotion and whether the so-called “guru” of Bulverde, Texas is more content indulging in showmanship than he is in guiding his clients on the path to self-knowledge. A look at Rathbun’s blog shows a couple of vanity books he has authored, a self-idolizing photo of himself [Continue]

The Marty Rathbun Inc. Paradox

The Marty Rathbun Inc. Paradox

Marty Rathbun is waxing poetic again about his latest favorite topic – “integration.” He has now integrated cognitive therapy into the mix, equating it with Scientology auditing. By all appearances, Rathbun has figuratively set sail on his own voyage of self-discovery, dabbling in various thought processes to seek, perhaps, a path to inner [Continue]

Atheists or Religious Haters?

Atheists or Religious Haters?

Here’s a new twist on Mark “Marty” Rathbun’s theory of “integration,’’ in which he sees other philosophies and religious belief systems complementing the already altered tech he delivers under the guise of his so-called counseling. If Rathbun wants to go the ecumenical route, that’s fine, but – as we’ve already noted – to [Continue]

Marty Rathbun’s Rule: I’m Always Right!

We think we may have discovered why elements of the “indie” group are unhappy, to put it mildly, with their ersatz leader, counseling “guru” Mark “Marty” Rathbun.

Marty Rathbun appears to be questioning his own place – and de facto leadership position – in the so-called and much fractured group.

I Smell A Rat

I Smell A Rat

Anyone familiar with the online postings of Marty Rathbun knows that they follow a predictable pattern. When not venting about the “injustices” done to him (those of his own making), he sometimes features a mind-numbing post from some so-called adherent of his self-styled “indie” group. They are long and tedious diatribes written by [Continue]

Name Dropping

Name Dropping

Nobody likes a name dropper. They usually fall into two categories. The first is the kind of person who liberally sprinkles the names of “important” people (bosses, social acquaintances etc.) into practically every conversation. It’s usually done to achieve status and is boring if not insufferable to those forced to listen. The second kind [Continue]

Marty Rathbun & Tony Ortega: What Do They Have In Common?

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Could this old proverb apply to the bizarre relationship between Marty Rathbun and Tony Ortega? First of all, what do the two have in common? Insanity is the common denominator. Rathbun, a self-styled guru who ekes out a living “counseling” unfortunate souls, abandoned his religion nine years [Continue]

Madness

Marty Rathbun freely admits to his own madness. That he writes in the third person makes this confession all the more chilling and all the more pathetic.
