I agree totally with your argument. However I would point out that it does work, in the same way hypnosis works, you have to want it to. There are many ways to change thought pathways but ALL of them need the subject to want it.
I'll agree it is not occult.
How about hermeticism..
can we add that?
It's not my list but we can apparently add anything that is not in the bible and maybe some things that are.

Like I mentioned in the OP - I intentionally left out the main religions because I did not want a religious debate over religion.

How is martial arts mysticism? Most martial arts teach that it is only to be used in defense.
A Tree and its Fruit
Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
