As I recall, Susan was the administrative ‘course office’ person on my teacher training course with Maharishi in La Antilla, Spain. The course fee was to be $1,100 for the three months course but When our group of a thousand or more arrived there in Spain to register we were told we needed to pay up another $110 then to be on the course (1973 dollars). Folks were pretty upset and she was the spokesperson for a series of meetings with people about this. She was the iron lady of deflection brought up to the podium on behalf of the movement standing ground then in these meetings. The meetings and rancor went on for some time with Susan being the person dealing with it from the microphone and at one point Curly Smith, a teacher in those days from out West, a big handsome guy, strode across on stage to the microphone and speaking without any dispute declared directly to the group, “Look, we raised it $110 because we figured we could not get any more out of you.” The honest statement right then put an end to the discussion and the course went on from there. Jai Guru Dev.

A lot of stuff you already know but some new. Deepak and Sri Sri don''t come off well. John Lennon tried to come back after two years and was ignored, Rich and famous didn't always work. also she says he clearly demonstrated supernatural powers sometimes like teleportation or bilocation and omnscience yet still made some mistakes / got some things mixed-up / wrong on rare instances
