Update: 2015


by Machaelle Small Wright

Over the years we have become aware of several people who are running around telling people that there is a "new MAP," and they just happen to be the one chosen to inform everyone about the MAP changes. They've even said that the MAP teams haven't yet told me about the changes. Then they proceed to scare the bejesus out of people by telling them things like they are being attacked and taken over by aliens and the MAP teams want them to keep their coning open twenty-four hours a day for the rest of their lives. Here are some facts about MAP that I hope will put you at ease.

  • THE HEAD OF THE MAP PROGRAM IS LORPURIS, the head of the White Brotherhood Medical Unit. I speak with him daily. He's not going to change the MAP program without telling me about it. It's not as if we don't talk to one another and he hasn't gotten around to telling me this little bit of news.

  • MAP HAS BUILT-IN PROTECTION. It was decided prior to the program "going public" that any changes or modifications would come through Perelandra. This is not because we at Perelandra claim a monopoly on MAP. It is to avoid confusion among MAP users. Without this coordination anyone could announce changes to the program, and everyone would have to figure out whose changes were legitimate and whose were not, creating a fair amount of chaos in the program.

  • MAP WAS DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE A WIDE RANGE OF APPROACHES that are needed for the many different people who participate in the program. In part, this was done so that the teams would not have to modify the program for a long time. MAP has not become obsolete and the teams do not anticipate needing to change it for many years to come — certainly not in our lifetime or in our children's lifetime . . . or in their children's lifetime.

  • INDIVIDUALIZED CARE. Because MAP is set up to meet individual needs, it is not unusual for one team's approach and work to be quite different from how the other teams work. It is important that we not confuse what is unique about our personal MAP work and think it is what everyone else needs to do or that it is a sign of wholesale changes in the program.

    If you know someone who has been "taken in" by would-be MAP changes, suggest to them to go back to using the program as it is outlined in the book. They need to talk to their team about the frustrations they are having with MAP that made them open to suggestions to changing the program in the first place. When someone deliberately attempts to shift the MAP session setup outside the structure of the program, their team will not continue to work with them. Instead, whenever a MAP coning is opened the team will attempt to bring the person back to understanding what MAP is about and stabilize the person until he is ready to participate in the program as it has been set up. No matter how hard a person tries, he cannot manipulate a MAP team to operate in ways the team does not wish to operate.
